And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10)
Our Father, most merciful and gracious, of whose bounty we have all received, we pray you accept these offerings of your people. Remember in love those who have given, and those for whom it is given. And so follow it with your blessing that it may promote worship among men and advance the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns forever.
