It is good to give you thanks, O Lord,
and to sing praises to your name, O Most High.
We celebrate your loving-kindness to us every day
and your faithfulness night by night.
With every good gift you have given, we worship you.
You have made your people glad with your faithful acts, O Lord,
and we shout for joy at your righteous works.
Teach us to use your gifts rightly,
to do good to all people and build them up,
and to allow your beauty to flourish in this world.
We pray for the healing of those who are ill,
for the guidance of those who are strong,
for the reconciliation of those who are enemies,
and for the comfort of those who are grieving.
Let your kingdom flourish among us,
O Lord, our Rock.
We pray in Jesus’ name, saying together:
The Lord’s Prayer
