Here’s a closing commission and benediction inspired by Mark 9:33-37. It was written by Bruce Prewer.
(inspired by Mark 9:33-37)
Remember one of the secrets of success according to Jesus:
“If you want to feel great, be willing to come last and to gladly serve others.”
May God give you the faith and love to put this into practice,
and the humility to permit others to do the same for you.
Depart from this house of prayer
with restored hopes and renewed enthusiasm.
And the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,
will be with you all, today and evermore.
