Lord, you are the great teacher! You led by example. We study your actions, like the washing of feet, and realize the depth of your love and commitment. We beseech you to have mercy on us. Free us from all constraints and help us to give freely. We offer ourselves-our prayers, presence, gifts, witness and service–to you now and forever. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
John 13:1-17, 31b-35
