 PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

 

OFFERTORY PRAYER

God of abundance, we bring these gifts to You, acknowledging You as the source of all blessing in our lives. We have spent and overspent our resources on things that attracted our attention but didn’t begin to satisfy the needs within us. Help us to live wisely and to give generously from deep gratitude for Your love. May our lives reflect the words of Your apostle, “Let no debt remain outstanding except the continuing debt to love one another…” We ask this in the holy name of Jesus, the Christ. Amen.                                                                                                     (Romans 13:8-14)
