PRAYER OF INVOCATION

God of majesty, Christ of humility, spirit of unanimity, no one can boast in your presence. We may not be wise by human standards, powerful in society, or noble in birth right, but we come to you in Christ, who is our wisdom, our virtue, our Redeemer, who alone is our boast.

Amen
