Prayer for Episcopal Ministries of Long Island
Good and gracious God,
We praise you for the gift of your Incarnate Word, Jesus Christ,
Who taught us: "Love one another as I have loved you",
While showing us what that love looks like
In powerful acts of mercy and justice.
Pour your blessing, O God, upon the work of
EPISCOPAL MINISTRIES OF LONG ISLAND,
As we seek and serve Christ in all people.
Bless those who give of themselves for the sake of others.
Bless all whom we meet; may we serve with humility,
Respecting the dignity and freedom of every person.
Bless those who generously support us in our mission
To feed, heal, to empower and to foster hope.
By your grace, grant that all we do
Fulfills your purpose and honors your glory.
With grateful hearts, we pray in Jesus' name.
