You are my God, and I will praise you! You are my God, and I will exalt you! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. - Psalm 118:28-29 (NLT)
You are so good and have shown us your love over and over again. We give thanks to you for the many blessings you have granted to us. Lord, we feel blessed to belong to a church with such a talented and caring, Christ-centered Church Staff. We are grateful for the gifts and talents of our Pastors and Staff, and we pray that you would help them to know how much they are appreciated, respected, and loved by this congregation. Help our Church Staff to feel your love and also ours as they go through their day and tend to the needs of the congregation, their families, and themselves.
We pray also for our PNC. We give thanks for their willingness to serve and their dedication of time and effort to the search process. We pray that they would also know how grateful the members of this congregation are for their service. And just as you have shown us your love, God, help us to show love and our appreciation to the members of the PNC.
In your name, AMEN.
