Version (A):
 

Creator God,

 

Life is your gift to me.
 

Through Baptism,
you invite me to share the gift of my life
in service to others.


Be with me
as I choose each day
to show your Presence in our world.


Give me the courage and generosity
to respond to your love, to your call.


I pray especially for those
who serve you in ministry
throughout the parishes of Long Island.


May we bring the Good News
to  those in need.


Keep us close to you.


Open the minds and hearts
of many others
-- men, women, and young people --
that they may accept your challenge
to build the Kingdom in our parishes.

 

We ask this prayer through Christ
our Lord.

 

Amen.

 

Version (B):

Generous God,

I give thanks to you for the gifts you have given me -my life, my family, my friends - time, talents, and material possessions.  All that I have comes from you.  Help me to remember this and rejoice in your goodness.


Walk with me, my God.  Help me on my spiritual journey, so that I may constantly renew my relationship with you and all the good people in our parish and throughout Long Island.


Renew in me your Spirit.  Give me the strength and courage to become a better follower of Jesus, to be a disciple.  Help me hear the call to "Come, Follow Me."
 

I give glory to you, my God, as I make stewardship a way of life.

 

Amen.

 

Version (C):

 

Creator God,

 

At Baptism,
     we accepted the call to follow Jesus.
 

Be with us
     as we move along on our faith journey.
 

Send us your Holy Spirit,

     that we might have wisdom for the journey.
 

Help us to develop and share our gifts
     as good stewards,

     that we may use them
     in love and service in your Kingdom.

 

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

 

Amen.

 

 

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Christ has no body now but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
compassion on this world.

Yours are the feet
with which he walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which He blesses all the world.

Yours are the hands,
yours are the feet.
Yours are the eyes,
you are His body.

Christ has no body now but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
compassion on this world.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
