Dear Lord, So quickly our days fly away from us, and we come to the end of our time. Yet, when we walk with you, you fill our lives with good things and beautiful experiences. Beginning in time our lives are led into eternity as we learn to give ourselves to you in wonder, love, and praise. We join together to lift your name in celebration of your magnificent grace. We seek the gift of your presence as we offer the prayer, which Jesus taught us…
