Creator God, accept our praise
To You, our voices raised.
We serve with gladness,
Give you thanks, for blessing us always. Amen.

Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people and 
the sheep of his pasture

About the Prayer and Preparation Project

Each day from April 30 to June 3 you will be prompted with a Psalm to read, a short breath prayer or collect (call-ect) written by a North Georgia United Methodist, and prayers of invocation.

We invite you to share this with your family, small group, congregation, and Christian community. Whether you are attending Annual Conference or not, we pray this will better prepare all of us for true holy conferencing.
