dwell among us today
and fill us with yourself.
Say to each one of us,
“I am your salvation.”
Speak to us so that we cannot fail to hear.
Show yourself to us,
and show us how badly we need you.
Uphold your servants
who proclaim your Word in your temple
and lead the worship of your people.
Touch the hearts of the hearers
that they may receive and serve you.
Hear us, O heavenly Father,
for the sake of your only Son.
