Prayer over the Gifts

God our Father, you have given us in abundance that we might give you praise and serve all your people in love. Accept these gifts we bring for the salvation of all the world, and help us to live in love as you have commanded. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Or this:

Lord God, accept these gifts we bring to this altar; and teach us the wisdom of the gospel which leads to true justice and lasting peace. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
