St. Stephen Ministry Prayer

Compassionate Lord, you walked the earth to bring the Good News of God’s love to all. You showed us by example how to love and care for one another. Make known to us your caring presence through the St. Stephen Ministry in our congregation. Help us to hear your call to service and witness. May this caregiving ministry be one way in which we touch the lives and hearts of others within and outside our congregation. Reveal to us your presence as we care and serve. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
