Prayer for St. Mary’s on its 190th Anniversary                                                                                                                                  Gracious God, We give thanks for those who established and upheld this congregation of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Manhattanville, for the past 190 years, for their faith and vision, for their gifts and abilities.  As we celebrate our past and rejoice in our present, we also look forward with eager eyes to the future. We pray that You would continue to make Your love known among us. Give us a zeal for mission. Help us to see, by faith, the needs of those around us and the needs of those who shall come after us, and give us strength and courage to witness in word and deed to the riches of life with Christ. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
