Jesus, you invite and welcome all to you.
We praise and thank you for inviting and welcoming us to be one with you.
Gently remind and encourage us that we are called to announce the Good News that you teach us; that we are all made in God's image and we all have unique gifts.
Inspire us to actively invite and welcome all; for when we include everybody in the Body of Christ, we will then be truly one.
Send us your Spirit so that we, the Church, can strive to be a people of compassion and relationship, and a sacred place where our gifts are acknowledged, received and celebrated; for then we can truly proclaim that we are 'one Body in Christ'.
