we come to you in thanksgiving,
knowing that all we are and all we have
is a gift from you.
In faith and love, help us to do your will.
We are listening, Lord God.
Speak your words into the depths of our souls,
that we may hear you clearly.
We offer to you this day all the facets of our lives,
whether it be at home, at work, or at school –
to be patient, to be merciful, to be generous, to be holy.
Give us the wisdom and insight
to understand your will for us
and the fervor to carry out our good intentions.
We offer our gifts of time, talent and possessions to you
as a true act of faith,
to reflect our love for you and our neighbor.
Help us to reach out to others
as you our God have reached out to us.
