Almighty God
My parish is composed of people like me.
I help to make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am friendly.
Its pews will be filled, if I help to fill them
My parish will do great work, if I work with my parish
It will make generous gifts to many just causes,
If I am a generous giver.
It will welcome other people to our worship and fellowship
If I invite and welcome them.
It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
And a Church with a noble spirit,
If I am filled with these same qualities.
Therefore with the help of God,
I shall dedicate myself to the task
Of being all the things that I want my parish to be.
Bless our journey together, Lord God,

Amen
