Thank you, God, for the influence of young and old

Thank you God,
for the people of the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church. 
The people in this church, young and old, 
have influenced me in so many ways.
They have nurtured me through love and faithfulness 
in times that I needed it the most. 

The people in this church have strengthened my faith 
by providing a firm foundation for me to stand 
 when I feel the sand shifting beneath my feet. 

They have recognized spiritual gifts in me 
that I would have never known existed. 

Their wisdom, encouragement, and guidance 
has taught me how to use my gifts to share Your Word. 

For the people of the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church,
I have always been and will continue to be 
eternally grateful!
In Christ's name,

Dedication Sunday at Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church
will be Sunday, November 23 during 11am worship.
Pray about how God is calling you to commit
your time, talent, and money to serve Christ through the church.

The above prayer is from 
a series of prayers of thanksgiving
written to celebrate the 180 years 
of ministry of Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church.
These prayers are being used 
as part of this year's stewardship materials.

What would prayer of thanksgiving to God
would you write about your church?
