God of all good things,
You have dwelt within our hearts
and inspired us
with the lives of those
who have been prepared to give
from all they have
that the story of Jesus Christ
might be shared amongst those they knew
and those unknown.
who made the presence of Christ
visible in what they gave of their gifts and talents.
As we remember those who have inspired us
in our knowledge of Your love,
and encouraged us to live as Your people,
amy we be willing to give from who we are
and all we have,
that others might encounter Your Spirit
and find Christ in their lives.
