We offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to You, O Lord, dedicated to Your service; to pleasing you.
Though we are many, we are one body in union with You, we are joined to each other as different parts of that one body. Help us to use our different gifts in accordance with Your grace.
If it is our call to LEAD, help us to lead with wisdom.
If it is our call to SERVE, help us to serve with joy.
If it is our call to TEACH, help us to teach Your truth.
If it is our call to GIVE WITNESS, help us to speak Your message according to the faith we have.
If it is our call to LISTEN, help us to listen with sensitivity.
If it is our call to ENCOURAGE OTHERS, help us to do so with kindness and gentleness.
Help us to share our gifts generously, to be sincere in our love, cheerful in our labor and patient in our troubles.
We thank You, Lord, for the opportunities you have given us to know Your will, to know what pleases You – to know that through this knowledge, we may grow in love for each other and through that love to grow in Your life of love.
May our lives be a prayer of praise – a song of hope, so joyful, that it leads others to be renewed in You.
