Good and gracious God,
We recognize all life is a gift and a blessing.
We thank you for your most generous love.
Encourage us to be persons of honesty and integrity,
worthy of proclaiming the Gospel,
in this sacred ministry of fundraising.
Help us to always reverence the sacred space
where our donors and our missions meet.
Give us openness to listen to the needs of our donors.
Give us joyful spirits, and an eagerness to engage others.
Give us hopeful imagination and creative vision,
recognizing generosity in even the smallest gift.
Give us strong, steadfast hearts in times of discouragement.
Give us trusting hearts, knowing that the fruits of our labors will be realized
long after we are gone.
Give us faithful hearts, deeply committed to Your realm.
Let us feel Your Presence
so that we know we are never truly alone.
Remind us always that what we do for the least of
our brothers and sisters,
we do for you.
We ask this in Jesus’ name, and in unity of the Holy Spirit.
