PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER

Gracious God, we have become anesthetized to the amount of greed surrounding our everyday lives.   Our identities often seem defined by our possessions and lifestyle.  Yet, we are stripped bare of our worldly possessions and seen equally in your holy sight.  Release those temporal bonds preventing us from living and giving in ways that honor your name.  We prayerfully dedicate these gifts to the work of your eternal home, a place of faith where our souls will truly rest.  Amen. Luke 12:13-21
