Our Collect of the Week…
Creator of the fruitful earth, you made us stewards of all things.  Give us grateful hearts for all your goodness, and steadfast wills to use your bounty well, that the whole human family, today and generations to come, may with us give thanks for the riches of your creation.  We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.

A special prayer for the kidnap victims of Nigeria…
O God, we cry out to you for the lives and the freedom of the 276 kidnapped girls in Nigeria. In their time of danger and fear, pour out your strong Spirit for them. Make a way home for them in safety. Make a way back for them to the education that will lift them up. Hold them in the knowledge that they are not captive slaves, they are not purchased brides, but they are your beloved daughters, and precious in your sight. Change the hearts and minds of their kidnappers and all who choose violence against women and girls. Cast down the mighty from their seat and lift up the humble and meek, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
