we your Children of St. Augustine Chaplaincy Akoka
come before your throne of Love and Mercy,
in Thanksgiving for the numerous blessings on us in times past.
You granted us a harvest of divine overflow and manifested yourself to us despite our unworthiness.
Father, this year we come before you
with our hearts full of thanksgiving
as we plan to complete the place of worship you have called us to build
to the greater glory of your holy name.
We know that you are a faithful God
who created out of nothing
and so we beseech you to grant us all we need
to build for you despite the situation of our Country and World.
O Lord we ask for your favour and blessings over us and our family members.
We beg you to heal our world of this coronavirus
and grant us generosity of hearts as we offer our Harvest of Thanksgiving to you.
We beg you to accept our offerings and meet us at the points of our needs
so that we can witness and testify of your goodness during this year's harvest of thanksgiving.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
