Gracious God,

You sent your Son
to proclaim the Good News,
inspire us in faith
and show us the way
to be good stewards
of Your abundant gifts .

In this month of July
dedicated to the
Most Precious Blood
of Jesus,
grant us the wisdom
to recognize
that through his gift
of the Eucharist
there is but one cup of
covenant and communion
with Christ and each other.

Through the Eucharist,
give us the courage to
be good stewards
of Christ’s presence
to others in our words
and our deeds.

And through your Spirit
teach us to live,
no longer for ourselves,
but in Christ Jesus
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
