Prayer for Mission

This beautiful, simple prayer from The Daily Office both rested and disquieted me this morning:

Lord Jesus Christ,
you stretched out your arms of love
on the hard wood of the cross
that everyone might come within
the reach of your saving embrace:
So clothe us in your Spirit
that we,
reaching forth our hands in love,
may bring those
who do not know you
to the knowledge and love of you;
for the honor of your Name.
