A PRAYER FOR ALL
We give ourselves to Thee O God, in praise, in glory, in honour.  Help us to translate Thy Word into life, Thy teachings into actions.  May we find joy in living for Thee.  Mirror our souls in Thy presence that we may know where we are, from whence we have come, and the long road we ought to be going.  Please accept this day Our Father, the vow we humbly make to serve Thee, now and evermore, in the name of Christ we pray-Amen.
