God, we pray for SHARE day. We pray that it will be a time of unity and fellowship among neighbors. We pray that the things we SHARE with one another might serve as an encouragement and that they might meet the needs of those who receive them. May we remember that it is in giving that we receive. May we also remember that sometimes to receive a gift from others is a gift in itself. As we clean out all the things we do not need, remind us that our sustenance comes from you. Forgive us for dependence on things and help us to restore our dependence on you. Fill our bodies and spirits with energy as we prepare for SHARE day. There is much work to be done. Send to us helpers who will contribute to the work. May our willingness to SHARE with one another and provide for one another be a blessing to you, O Lord. As neighbor offers gift to neighbor, may we be a sign of your Kingdom here on Earth. It is in your holy and unifying name we pray, Amen.
