Faith, Hope, Love and Service

PommeranianAgendaAlmighty Lord God,
give us true faith,
and make that faith grow in us
day by day.
Also give us hope and love,
so that we may serve our neighbors
according to your will;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
