Heavenly Father of all the saved,
Let us respond to your goodness in gratitude and service.
Shore up your church as we depend upon one another and ultimately upon your power.
Help us to see the white field ready for harvest that Jesus seeks to show us.
Thank you for the gifts from the Holy Spirit for your church. May we use them for your glory.
We seek the blessing from obedience to your commands. Keep us from ignoring any of them.
Protect us from the evil one and deliver us from temptation. Let us not accept excuses for ourselves.
May tongues confess the Lord, and hands work with joy for your kingdom.
