Prayers into the world

God of the covenant,
you call us to be fruitful servants within creation,
and to offer our lives
as the foundation of your realm.
We lay before you the desires of our hearts,
that we may be transformed by their fulfilment.

May the prayers we offer

be your channel for new and abundant life
not only hoped for,
but worked for,
through faithful word and deed. Amen.
