Almighty Father, you are our Creator and God. We acknowledge your dominion over us, that we belong to you, that you hold our very lives in your hands. We come before you in worship and praise.
Lord Jesus, you are our Savior and Master. You call us into your body on earth, making us brethren to one another. Bind us together as one, united in your heart and mind, able to live and serve as your holy instruments.
Holy Spirit, fill us and continue to empower us to witness. Guide us and equip us in the work of evangelization. Give us the boldness to proclaim Christ, wherever we are, until this work reaches the very ends of the earth.
Triune God, you have given us the privilege of being stewards of your grace and mercy. Help us to be faithful, to claim nothing as our own, to give without counting the cost, to endure and joyfully embrace the cross. Favor us, Lord, so that by our common work the needs of all will be met.
Mama Mary, we look to your quiet strength and fullness of grace. Accord us great favor as you intercede for our needs and for our work. May your Son Jesus be glorified in all we do.Amen.

Our theme for 2016 is “Rich in Mercy.” This is taken from Ephesians 2:4. This theme also falls in line with our Church’s Extraordinary Jubilee Year (The Year of Mercy) which is from December 8 this year to November 20 next year.
