PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

 

OFFERTORY PRAYER

God of wonder and mystery: You walk alongside us on the journey of our lives; yet like those on the Emmaus road, we spend most of our journey oblivious to your presence. Like them, we are so focused on our own fears and uncertainties, we miss that the world is becoming something new with every step. Bless, gracious Lord, the gifts we give this morning. We thank you for the privilege of participating in your world-changing plans. We pray in the risen Savior’s name, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

(Luke 24: 13-35)
