Prayer of Thanksgiving

Lord we thank you for bringing us together in your name.

We have come to speak and to listen, to pray and to share,

That we may better understand what it means to be your disciples

And to be the stewards of your many gifts

We believe that you are present among us as you promised, Lord;

And so, with confidence, we bring our prayers before you;

That like the good steward in the Gospel, we may be ready when the master comes, we pray to the Lord

All: Lord, hear our prayer

That we may know and do what you ask of us, and so be found trustworthy,

All: Lord hear our prayer 

For our church, that we will be a beacon of your love in this community

All: Lord hear our prayer 

For all the people of our parish, that our work may tough them and help them to live out more fully your call to discipleship

All: Lord hear our prayer 

For our Kirk Session, that they will have the strength and wisdom to shepherd your people

All: Lord hear our prayer 

For all those who work throughout our parish, that we may work effectively in partnership with them

All: Lord hear our prayer 

For all those who are touched by the ministry that our efforts support, that they will recognise you as the ultimate source of that help

All: Lord hear our prayer 

That the Holy Spirit, whose gracious action guides us to Jesus Christ, will enlighten us all and help us to renew our commitment as the Lord’s disciples and as stewards of his bountiful gifts.

All: Lord her our prayer 


Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

In earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our debts

As we forgive our debtors

And lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory

Forever and ever

AMEN
