Benediction: Proper 16 B

Here’s a commission and benediction for the 13th Sunday after Pentecost.  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Commission & Benediction

Go out, and make known the mystery of the gospel.
Keep alert and pray at all times.
Draw strength from God’s power
and so stand firm against all that would corrupt you.

And may God arm you with truth and righteousness;
May Christ Jesus give you words of Spirit and life;
and may the Holy Spirit draw you near to God’s presence
........and bless you with honour and grace.

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