Supporting Thriving Faith Communities in Northern Illinois
For the Mission of the Church
Almighty God, you sent your son Jesus Christ
to reconcile the world to yourself.
We praise and bless you
for those whom you have sent in the power of the Spirit
to preach the gospel to all nations.
We thank you that in all parts of the earth
a community of love has been gathered together
by their prayers and labors,
and that in every place your servants call upon your name;
for the kingdom and the power and the glory
are yours forever. Amen
