God our Father, you have called us
to be witnesses to Jesus
and have commissioned us to lead
all people to encounter him.
Send your Holy Spirit
to enlighten our minds
so that your will may be clear to us and that we may accept it.
Dwell within our souls
and make our hearts your own.
Transform us into a band of
joyful missionary disciples
embracing the fruits of Synod 16
so as to share the good news
of Jesus Christ in Southeastern Michigan
evangelization and service.
Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle
in them the fire of your love. Amen.
Saint Anne, pray for us.
