Lord God, you are the creator of heaven and earth,
day by day, year by year we see your hands at work
both in the world and graciously in our lives.
We have so many reasons to count our blessings,
so much to give thanks for.
Let faith grow in our lives, let the saving words of Jesus
grow richly in the soil of our hearts.
May the abundant love of Jesus strengthen our commitment to you
and to others and may the fruit of our faith overflow in joy and gladness
filling the earth with your glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
