Pastor David reads Matthew 5:11-16 and offers a prayer from Lord Shaftesbury:
O God, the Father of the forsaken, who teaches us that love towards people is the bond of perfectness and the imitation of yourself: open our eyes and touch our hearts that we may see and do the things which belong to our peace.
Strengthen us in the work which we have undertaken; give us wisdom, perseverance, faith, and zeal; and in your own time and according to your pleasure, prosper our work; for the love of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
