"God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8
Lord God Almighty, thank you for loving us first; for to know you is to love you and to love is to serve. We come today thanking you for grace that abounds and the sufficiency of faith found through grace in our relationship with you.
Stir our souls so that we will lift every voice and sing your praises, sing of your goodness and sing until justice rolls down like a mighty rushing stream.
Forgive us for limited vision, when we could see a broader and longer view. Let us not be fearful of those who do not have our best interests at heart. Let us not shrink from doing what is right or be weary in well doing.
Help us not only to sing, but help us to back our singing with decisive action in our civic, social and spiritual responsibilities. Amen.
