God has abundantly cast God’s seeds of love and hope upon us.

Come, let us sing songs of joy to God.

*SPIRIT PRAYER
Wonderful God- you who send the rain to fall on the righteous and the unrighteous and
make the sun to rise upon the just and the unjust — we give thanks and praise for the
abundance of your love.  Refresh us today with your Spirit.  Pour out upon us your grace
and your truth and help us to receive it with joy and to heed your instruction and obey
your commandments so that in us and through us there may be an abundant harvest.  May
your word live and grow in us and bear much fruit — even as we praise your everlasting
name through Christ Jesus your Son and our Lord, our brother, and our friend.  Amen!
