May these gifts bring shelter to the homeless, comfort to the sick, rest to the weary, and hope to the desperate.

We give freely and not under compulsion, because there is nothing we can give that matches your glory and majesty, and the great gift of your son Jesus and the Holy Spirit that guides us daily. Everything we have is yours father, and we ask you to use everything we have as you want. Amen.
