Loving and Generous God,

You are the source of all that we are and all that we have,
the Giver of life and abundant grace,
Father of every generation.
We thank You and we praise You.

We thank You for the gift of your Son, Jesus,
Who brought us your mercy and salvation
through His Death and Resurrection.

We thank You, Lord, for sending us Your Spirit
to complete the work of Jesus
and bring us to the fullness of your grace.

Open our hearts to the gift of Your grace.
Make us faithful stewards, good receivers, and generous givers.
Teach us that we serve You as we share the blessings we have received,
building bridges of service to people of all ages,
especially those in most need of kindness and comfort.

Be with us, Lord, as we witness to Your Good News
in all that we do in our homes, parishes, and in the workplace.
Open our eyes to see Your presence in all we encounter.
Open to Your love, may it always flow through our hearts.

This we pray through your Son, our Lord Jesus,
Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
