For Pentecost 9, Year B
You, our Holy One, are gracious and compassionate,
long suffering and ever faithful.
You are good to all;
And your compassion rests upon all you have made.
You keep faith with us
and are consistent in all you do,
supporting all who stumble
and raising those brought low.
All your creatures, dear God, raise their eyes to you in hope
and you provide for each one according to their need.
You open your hand
and satisfy every living creature.
You are near to all who call upon you,
whose hearts are sincere.
You hear them when they cry
and you come to save them.
