"God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
Almighty God, in your Word you have given us a vision of that Holy City to which the nations of the world bring their glory. Behold and visit we pray the City of Newark. Renew the ties of mutual regard, which form our civic life. Send us honest and able leaders. Enable us to eliminate poverty, prejudice and oppression; that peace may prevail with righteousness, and justice with order, and that men and women with differing talents may find with one another the fulfillment of their humanity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Most merciful Father, we beseech thee to send down they heavenly blessing upon thy Church in this Parish, that all its members may dwell together in unity and brotherly love. Keep far from us all self-will and discord. Endue thy Ministers with righteousness, and enable them faithfully to dispense they holy Word and Sacraments, to bring again the the outcasts, and to seek the lost. Grant that we may so receive their ministrations, and use thy means of grace, that in all our words and deeds we may seek thy glory and the advancement of thy kingdom; through Jesus Christ or Lord. Amen.
