Bountiful God,

whose Son revealed his glory at Cana of Galilee:

help us to believe and obey,

so that, as our Saviour promised,

we may be filled with the wine of new life

and show forth his joy and love;

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Their specific gifts contribute to the building up of the Body of Christ
