Prayer

Almighty ever-living God,
your presence is eminent in the beauty of creation,
your Son is present to us in Word and Eucharist,
and your Holy Spirit, placed in us at baptism, 
is present to us at every moment.
May we ceaselessly recognize these gifts, 
and offer our full presence of body, mind, and spirit
every time we gather to celebrate the Eucharist.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.   Amen.
