we praise you for your deep and boundless love, a love that is patient even when our souls are weary from life’s many demands. You strengthen and even carry us while we are weak, are a beacon to us when we are lost.
Loving God, we also thank you for our church, a gateway through which our souls are fed by Your word, a safe harbor, a unified holy family. Our church is one of our greatest blessings and we pray that our contributions are generous in order to meet its great need.
Guide us, O Lord as we provide our gifts that enable us as one Body in Christ to do so many good works in your name. As there is no limit to what you provide for us, may our hearts by led to provide for others. We ask all of these things in Jesus name who taught us to pray together saying…
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Dr. Blair W. Clementson, Elder
