Prayer of Thanksgiving

Generous and loving God, We give you thanks for the opportunity to gather together once again with our fellow believers in  Your name and in Your house, to hear Your Word proclaimed and to receive the Eucharist, the Body of you Son, Jesus.

May we remember the physical distance we endured and let it bring us closer to You and to Your people.

We continue to pray for those who suffer; those who care for them; and those who mourn for the loss of loved ones. We give thanks, too, for all those who worked each day, putting the safety of others before their own.

With you love, may our faith remain strong, our desire to serve be steadfast and our willingness to share our resources sacrificially in Your name deepen our faith.

We ask this and all things through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
