God, our Father,
You send the power of the Gospel into
the world as a life giving inspiration.
Fill with the Spirit of Christ
the members of our Society
whom you call to live in the midst of
the world and its concerns.
Touch the hearts of our fellow-Christians
that among them we may find dedicated
helpers who by prayer and sacrifice
and through membership of the Society
may help to bring all people to Christ
Our Saviour. Amen.
