God, life is your gift to us. Through Baptism, you invite us to share in the gift of life in service to others.
Be with us as we choose each day to show your presence in our world.
Give us the courage and generosity to respond to your love and your call.
We pray especially for those who serve you in all ministries here in our Parish.
May they bear the Good News to those in need and keep them close to you.
Open the minds and hearts of many that they may accept your challenge to build the Kingdom in our Parish.
Lord Jesus, You tell us that the meaning of life consists in giving.
Help us to realize it is not riches or fame or power that gives life meaning.
Rather, it is the generosity and service to You and others that brings fulfillment and makes life worthwhile.
May all our activity help us to build Your Kingdom.
