Though many, we form one body in Christ.
We belong to one another.
By God's grace we have different gifts.
We will use them in faith.
Rejoice in hope, stand firm in trouble, be constant in
Filled with his Spirit we will serve the Lord.
This prayer uses the picture of a body to describe the community
of Christians. Just like our bodies all the different parts have to
work together well for it to work properly, each part has to use
its special 'gift' alongside the others.
