A Prayer of Thanksgiving

To mark the end of major fundraising activities in the capital campaign at St Paul's, I was called on to compose a prayer of thanksgiving to be used at the presentation of those pledges we've received to date. I offer it here, humbly, for any who would have use of it:

Heavenly Father, who sent thy only son Jesus Christ to reconcile the world to himself: with thankful hearts we offer the gifts gathered in this capital campaign unto thy service, that we and all who encounter Christ in this place may be brought unto the glory of that blessed kingdom; where with thee and the Holy Ghost, thou livest and reignest, world without end. Amen.
