Before beginning to pray, take a few moments to breathe deeply.
Blessed One, we hear in your word for today a recipe for anointing oil – a recipe given so that Moses might anoint Aaron and his sons as priests. In our baptisms into Christ’s death and resurrection, you have marked us with Christ’s cross and sealed us with your Holy Spirit. In doing so, you have called us into the priesthood of all believers and made us priests to one another. Unite all believers together and where there is conflict, bring reconciliation. Where there is error, correct it. And, O Lord, help us to understand one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. It is in his name we all pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each word.
