Go Forth into the World

Prayer Book Bible Reading Book Of Common PrayerGo forth into the world in peace;
be of good courage;
hold fast that which is good;
render to no one evil for evil;
strengthen the fainthearted;
support the weak;
help the afflicted;
honor everyone;
love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit;
and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the + Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be among you and remain with you always. Amen.
