During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money,
it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."
She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Let us pray for the Church and for the world.
Grant, Almighty God, that all who confess your Name
may be united in your truth,
live together in your love,
and reveal your glory in the world.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.
Guide the people of this land, and of all the nations,
in the ways of justice and peace;
that we may honor one another
and serve the common good.
Give us all a reverence for the earth as your own creation,
that we may use its resources rightly
in the service of others
and to your honor and glory.
Bless all whose lives are closely linked with ours,
and grant that we may serve Christ in them,
and love one another as he loves us.
Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit;
give them courage and hope in their troubles,
and bring them the joy of your salvation.
We commend to your mercy all who have died,
that your will for them may be fulfilled;
and we pray that we may share with all your saints
in your eternal kingdom.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.Source: Lift Every Voice and Sing II: an African American hymnal #248
