LIFE IS YOUR GIFT TO US
God, life is Your gift to us.
Through Baptism, You invite us to share the gift of life in service to others.
Be with us as we choose each day to show Your presence in our world. Give us the courage to respond to Your call.
We pray especially for those who serve You in all ministries here in our parish. May they continue to bear the Good News through their words and action.
Open the minds and hearts of the many, that they may accept Your challenge to build the kingdom in our parish. Lord Jesus,
You tell us that the meaning of life consists in giving. Help us to realize that it is not riches or power, or fame that gives life meaning. Rather, it is generosity and service to You and others that brings true fulfillment and makes life worthwhile.
May all of our service help us to build Your Kingdom.
“Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them.”
