 By grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. 

Ephesians 2:8-9



Loving and righteous God,

your boundless generosity exceeds

all that we can desire or deserve,

and you give to the last worker all you promised to the first:

liberate us from all jealousy and greed,

that we may be free to love and serve others,

and in your service may find our true reward;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
