Alternative Giving Cards are found in the pew racks together with Newcomer Information Cards and “Scrawl Cards for Little Episcopalians”.
Front of Card
I/We support Christ’s ministry through Saint Mark’s by online giving, electronic pledging, or in annual or monthly installments. We place this card in the offertory plate today to be presented at the Altar to show our support of this parish and ask for God’s continued blessings upon our community.
Back of Card: A Centering Prayer
Lord, grant me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely on your holy will. In every hour of the day reveal your will to me. Teach me to treat all that comes to me throughout the day with peace of soul, and with firm conviction that your will governs everything. In all my deeds and words guide my thoughts and feelings. In unforeseen events let me not forget that all are sent by you. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me the strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring. Direct my will. Teach me to pray. Pray yourself in me. Amen
The Most Rev. Edmond L. Browning, 24th Presiding Bishop
