Grant, O Lord, that what has been said with our lips we may believe in our hearts, and that what we believe in our hearts we may practice in our lives, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Lord, now you are letting your servants depart in peace, according to your word; for our eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
-based on Luke 2:29-32
O God we pray that you would be gracious to us and bless us and make your face to shine upon us, that your way and your saving power may be known among the nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God, and let the nations be glad and sing for joy; for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Let the peoples praise you, O God; for the earth has yielded its increase. Bless us, Lord, and through that blessing, may all the ends of the earth come to fear you! Amen.
