O God, you are with us as we plunge to the depths of despair and rise yet victorious. You understand when we stumble, and you pick us up when we fall. May our gifts be testaments of our gratitude for all you do for us. May our pledge to stand by you be shown in what we are willing to share with the world, and may this church help to share your love with all around us. In Christ’s steadfast name we pray, Amen.
