DEDICATION OF OURSELVES AND OUR GIFTS TO GOD
Prayer of Dedication
As we celebrate the many wonders in our lives, we give you thanks and praise,
O God. Open our mouths, open our hearts that our lives may show forth your praise.
Transform these offerings into gifts of wonder and glorious deeds, that all may see the
light of your love, leading us to abundant life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

UNISON PRAYER
We gather this day to listen for God’s ancient truths, stories of wisdom passed down
through the ages. We gather this day to listen for Christ’s ongoing call, challenging words
shared from generation to generation. We gather this day to listen for the Spirit’s
movement, the wind of change that pushes us into new dimensions of truth and
discipleship. Speak to us, O God, that we may hear your truth, both ancient and new.
Amen.
