From Chalice Worship (1997), of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):

Eternal God, Creator of all, Savior of all, Lord of all, we the thank you that your love and power encompass all things and all people.  As the universal Creator, the whole universe is in your hands: there is no part of this earth that does not belong to you.  As the Savior and Lord, there are no people beyond your redeeming love.

We thank you that in all countries there are witnesses to your gospel, bearing testimony through their words and actions to the good news of Jesus Christ.   We thank you for your church in each place, for your Spirit equipping it with gifts and empowering your people to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.  We thank you for Christian partnership across continents and national boundaries, for those who have responded to your call to serve the church in a land that is not their own.

Grant that we may be worthy of this great company of saints, ready to witness and serve in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.
