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.

Now as We Pray

Representative Text

1 We thank You, Lord, now as we pray
For Your good blessings on this day.
Please bless our lives with grace and love,
With gifts abundant from above.

2 We also pray for Your great peace
Which comes to us when we release
Our sins, our cares, ourselves to You.
Your strength is great and brings us through.

3 Bless all who turn to You in hope,
Who by your Word learn how to cope
With trials, tests and temptings, too.
And find their help and grace in You.

4 That we may worship You and stay
Within Your service all this day,
Grant us Your Spirit ev'ry hour,
Fill each of us with Christ-like pow'r.
