"For Our Church"  

O Lord, we thank You for our church.  You have created our lives and intentionally brought us together to worship in our church.  It is within the church family relationship that we learn how to share Your gifts of love, forgiveness, and mercy,  It is here, in our church, that we learn to be patient, as You are patient; compassionate, as You are compassionate; and caring, as You care for us.  Bless our relationships that we may serve You here in our church and when we go out into Your world.  In the mighty name of Jesus we pray.
