+ Help us to live as your disciples, respecting each other, tolerating each other's weaknesses, listening to one another and making the effort to understand, and being quick to forgive.  Christ, our light, we pray.

+ As we collect school supplies and backpacks for the students at Mary's Place who are homeless, we ask your blessing on our efforts to help and support these children.  Christ, our light, we pray.

+ For the grace to live in a way that gives constant glory and praise to you.  Christ, our light, we pray.
