Father in heaven, King of glory,
we praise You for having made the world,
and for having chosen us as Your beloved people.

Bless + this banner we have made,
and be pleased with our efforts to serve You.
Help us to continue to use our lives and our talents
for your honour and glory
and for the salvation of Your people.

Praise and thanks are Yours, eternal Father,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

Amen
