You call us to walk in love,
and are the Light that illumines our steps.
All that we have and all that we are
is a precious gift from God,
who calls us to generosity and compassion,
knit into our hearts in creation.
Help us to hear your life-affirming Word,
and respond generously and joyously,
in awe of your grace, O God.
We know that you call us to praise
as well as sacrifice-
making holy our lives,
which belong entirely to You.
So let us give to God
that which is God's,
and sing praises for God's grace and mercy--
the breath that supports our song.
Spirit of Life and Light,
to humbly serve the cause of Love.
Gather us together in hope,
and place your seal of comfort, Lord,
on all for whom we pray.
