BOUNTY FOOD BANK PRAYER
 
Lord, you have called us to serve and be alongside the people around us.
Through our Food Bank we serve our community.
 
Lord, you called us to feed the hungry, clothed the naked, and welcome the stranger.
Through our Food Bank we see Christ in the face of those in need.
 
Lord, you called us to serve beyond our walls and give beyond our creeds.
Through our Food Bank we preach with loving action, and we witness with good deeds.
 
Lord, we are thankful for those among us who ensure that all may share and partake of your blessings.
We are thankful for our faithful workers and volunteers.
 
Lord, we are thankful for those in leadership whom you called to oversee that food is distributed in our midst.
We are thankful for our Food Bank leaders and board members.
 
And so today, we celebrate our Bounty Food Bank, and all the services done in compassion.
We celebrate the comfort, kindness, and hope that we impart in people's lives.
 
Give us now the grace to continue this work. Grant us now the inspiration to remain faithful.
Strengthen our hands. Renew our vision. Reinforce our unity in serving together as the Bounty Food Bank mission and ministry. Amen.
