Parish Prayer

Gracious God, you have welcomed us as your dearly beloved children. We give you thanks for the traditions, liturgy and creeds of the Anglican communion that guide our common life. Inspire and empower us to share in the work of the Holy Spirit through prayer, worship, fellowship, education, outreach, and service. Transform us by your grace, so that we might grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, be agents of forgiveness, and welcome others into the embrace of your love. All this we ask in the name of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
