O Jesus, fill me with your love now,
and I pray, accept me, and use me a little for your glory.
O do, do, I pray, accept me and my service, and take all the glory.
Lord, you have consecrated your world
by sending your Son into the midst of it
and by making all things new in him.
We ask you to give us and all your people
the courage and power we need
to share fully in his mission to the world
and to further his kingdom.
for all nations
O God of all the nations of the earth,
remember the multitudes who,
though created in your image,
have not known you,
nor the dying of your Son their Saviour Jesus Christ;
and grant that by the prayers and labours of your holy Church
they may be delivered from all ignorance and unbelief
and brought, to worship you;
through him whom you have sent
to be the Resurrection and the Life of all people,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
