PRAYERS AND OFFERINGS

OFFERTORY PRAYER

Healing One, we are reminded so often in Biblical narration that You are capable of miraculous actions. But, Your miracles are not limited to these ancient times. People still experience miracles in these ordinary, everyday times. We recall those many miracles that have touched people within our own congregation. We are astounded by those miracles that we witness each day. We are so thankful! Today, we offer You this money as a sacred gesture of our gratitude. All praise and honor be given to You! Amen
