Benediction: James 5: 13-20

Here’s a closing commission and benediction based on James 5:13-20.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.


Commission & Benediction

(inspired by James 5:13-20)

Go now and celebrate wherever God’s name is honoured.
When suffering comes, pray in faith.
In times of joy, sing songs of praise.
Persevere in prayer and action
to bring the fallen back to the truth.

And may God save you from all that would harm you;
May Christ Jesus heal you and raise you up;
and may the Holy Spirit anoint you
and give you peace with one another.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
...In the name of Christ. Amen.
