PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

 

OFFERTORY PRAYER

Holy and transforming God, far too often we have wanted keep You up on a mountain, uninvolved in the decisions we make or the way we respond to one another. Through Christ, You lead us down, back into the world. You push us back into life that we might

see You in the opportunities to extend love and grace to those who suffer, thinking they are beyond the reach of Your love. May the gifts we give now move from being an act of worship to an act of compassion, finding places where they can be the balm that heals. We pray this in the holy name of Jesus, the Christ. Amen. (Matthew 17:1-9)
