Dear God, we give You sincere thanks for the rest of the past night and for the gift of a new day, with its opportunities to pleasing You. You created us for this time and place. Please use us for Your glory that everything we do and say might be a testimony of who You are and that we belong to You. By Your grace and with Your help, may our lives be an act of praise and worship to You!

Por favor, úsanos para Tu gloria que todo lo que hacemos y decimos sea un testimonio de quién eres Tú y de que te pertenecemos. ¡Por Tu gracia y con Tu ayuda, que nuestras vidas sean un acto de alabanza y adoración a Ti!

We praise You for human connections with one another. Thank You God, for the company of our friends and loved ones. How blessed it is that we can find communities of like-mind and like-Spirit to share and express ourselves and share this life with.

Te alabamos por las conexiones humanas entre nosotros. Gracias, Dios, por la compañía de nuestros amigos y seres queridos. Qué bendicion es que podamos encontrar comunidades de mente y espíritu afines para compartir y expresarnos y compartir esta vida.

 I pray today that You will build our faith so strong that we can stand up to adversity. I ask that we may be empowered with Your faith so that we may see the possibilities. We praise You and give You glory; we bless You for calling us to be Your holy people. We praise You and give You glory, for the wonderful things You do for us; for life and health, for friends and family, and this splendid day. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Oro hoy para que construyas nuestra fe tan fuerte que podamos hacer frente a la adversidad. Te pido que seamos empoderados con Tu fe para que podamos ver las posibilidades. Te alabamos y te damos gloria; te bendecimos por llamarnos a ser tu pueblo santo. Te alabamos y te damos gloria, por las cosas maravillosas que haces por nosotros; por la vida y la salud, por los amigos y la familia, y por este espléndido día. En el nombre de Jesús, Amén.

I show my gratitude to God for my blessings, achievements, and accomplishments when I reach back and I reach out, to pull others to where I am.

As a congregation, The Tabernacle of Glory bases our studies and principles on the Six Holy Currencies of the Cycle of Blessings through the lens of  Acts 2:42-46:

The believers devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, to the community, to their shared meals, and to their prayers. A sense of awe came over everyone. God performed many wonders and signs through the apostles. All the believers were united and shared everything. They would sell pieces of property and possessions and distribute the proceeds to everyone who needed them. Every day, they met together in the temple and ate in their homes. They shared food with gladness and simplicity. They praised God and demonstrated God's goodness to everyone. The whole city was favorable to them. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.

The Cycle of Blessings, by author External link opens in new tab or windowEric Law, teaches how the six currencies of: time and place, gracious leadership, relationship, truth, wellness and money  flow and recirculate to form a cycle of blessings to empower congregations as well as strengthen their internal relationships and to reach out and connect with the diverse populations in their neighborhood.
