Prayer of Thanksgiving

Inclusive Language Prayer of Thanks

alt text = people bow in prayerHoly One, we thank you for the gift of life in its vast arrays and complexities.
We thank you for the gift of friendship.
Jesus we thank you that you modeled a life of service and compassion
To the people whom society often forgot or ignored.

Wise Spirit, we need your loving eyes
In order to care for those you have put in our midst.
We need greater grace in order to serve
And be in ministry with everyone.

We ask all of this, so that more people can become part of the great story
Of your love in action. This is why we pray, Thy Kingdom Come.  Amen
