….use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace…
1 Peter 4:10 NIV

Gracious God, we praise you for the beauty in nature.  We praise you that you are the tender and loving gardener who works for good in all things, bringing life, colour, fragrance and harmony into our world and our lives.
Thank you for the gifts you have so graciously given us.
Thank you that you inspire us when we get together and share thoughts and ideas.
Thank you that you enable us and open doors, in ways we might never have imagined,  as we work together prayerfully, bringing our different gifts, skills and talents into your service.

Gracious God, help us to discover and use our gifts just as you wish us.  May we grow together, in love and unity and be resourceful as we consider ways of serving you and others, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
