Shepherd by the Sea Prayer

We thank You, Loving God, for bringing us together as Your Community of faith. Your Spirit continually graces us with an abundance of gifts and we are deeply grateful. We truly have riches beyond measure.

Give us the capacity to listen generously to one another in order to discern the specific gifts You have bestowed on each of us.

Help us be gentle, truthful, and patient with one another. Help us encourage support, and strengthen each other. May we be humble before one another and always be mindful that each of us is Your precious child.

May we trust Your guiding Spirit as we continue to build this body of Christ.

Open our hearts to welcome all who come into our community of faith. May they experience, by our words and actions, Your acceptance and warmth.

May Your mission of reconciliation and love be our mission. Keep us ever mindful of Your desire as we strive to live out Your love in all that we do.

Grant us peace, strength and wisdom to serve You joyously on the Redwood Coast.

This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
