PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER

Precious Lord, you remind us through Scripture that we, like Zacchaeus, are descendants of Abraham.   We, too, are sinners in need of the redemptive love provided by Jesus.  Yet, we take comfort as we are embraced in your arms and feel the warmth of your love radiating through this place of worship.   We prayerfully ask that these gifts benefit your children who need to be blanketed in the safety and security of your tender care.  In love and gratitude, we pray.  Amen.                                                                                                       Luke 19:1-10
