PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE: Joys and Concerns
THE LORD’S PRAYER
You have given us so much—and we often fail to remember that you are the source of all we have. Accept these gifts and use them to further your work in the world. We present not only our monetary offerings, O God, but ourselves. When you made us, you bestowed on each of us talents and gifts. With your help, we seek to channel our passions and use those gifts in your service and to your glory. Amen
