Lord of the church in every place,
we bring our lives in love to you,
to share your gifts of peace and grace,
and bring you joy in all we do.

Partners in your eternal plan,
we lay these treasures at your feet;
content to know what you began
on that great day will be complete.

This is our prayer: that we might know
all the abundance of your love;
and in that knowledge daily grow
which brings us wisdom from above.

May we discern, and so confess
all that is pure and free from blame;
then, filled with fruit of righteousness,
bring praise and glory to your name.
