We give thanks for all the people who gather here to worship this morning
And for all the effort that has gone into our church activities this past week. [If a special event has taken place, e.g. a festival, mention it here.]
May our efforts inspire all who visit our church.
This morning let our ears be open to hear your word and our eyes be opened to see what needs to be done.
Speak to us that we might find insight, forgiveness and freedom.
Help us to carry your love into a needy world when we leave today.
