    Creator God,

    free us from fear and despair,

    Prayer of Thanksgiving

        God of Jonah and sailors, of whales
        and big fish, of far-away lands and
        next-door neighbors, we trust in your
        grace to save us from the storms of life,
        both the unexpected and those we bring
        on ourselves. We have heard your
        invitation and offer ourselves and our
        gifts to your service. Grant us the courage
        to walk directly to the place you have
        called us to go. Amen.

Sending Forth  God of Love and God of Power (UMH 578, lyrics)
