PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER-Unison

God of abundant blessing! For far too long we have relied on our possessions, as if they could guarantee the security of life and our future. We have watched the rise and fall of markets and economies as if they held the key to our joy. We too, have built bigger barns to store our accumulation of things as if lasting happiness could be found in a new gadget, a larger screen, or a new furnishing. We know you love us even in such foolishness. We give our gifts this day as a declaration that the only place our trust is well invested is in you! Use these gifts for your ends, that all might better know the real treasure of your kingdom. In Christ’s holy name we pray. Amen.                                                                      (Luke 12:13-21)
