God of the Covenant,
Who stays true to the vow between a god
and those who believe:
the faithful ones who are so often unfaithful,
the sanctified ones who so often sin,
the glad ones who are so often downcast.
Remind us of the path we have chosen.
Let us be faithful to your good news.
Let us be transformed by your new covenant,
a people that is unbound by border or culture,
undeterred by hardship or strife,
unflinching in the face of evil,
unceasing in prayer and worship,
for we are reborn in your baptism
and renewed daily
by the bread that fills our souls
and the cup that never leaves us thirsty.
It is your mercy then that we expand your covenant,
to shelter those who are lost in a foretaste
of your triumphant kingdom.
