O God, we desire to be good stewards of all that you have made: the earth, the world, and therein. All that we have comes as a trust from you.

God, Elohim, we give thanks for your gifts to us.

We are called by God to use whatever gifts we have been given in service to others.

As you have so freely given to us and lovingly made us what we are, we now freely give back to the substance of our lives – our time, talent, and money.

We are reminded in the gospel that from the poverty of the cross we have gained the richness of life.

Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to give to the work you have assigned our hand to do in this your earthly kingdom.

You have put your divine stamp upon us, endowed us with honor, and created us in your likeness. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Through providence and grace we offer our tithes and offerings on your altar.

Lord, Adonai, where our hearts and hands are closed, open them. Where our resolve is weak, strengthen us.

Our health and strength have come from you and it is you who make our financial resources possible.

Teach us to give as we have received. Remind us that what we claim as ours is really yours. Without your gifts to us we have nothing.

We are called by you, O Lord, to be good stewards of all that has been entrusted in our care. You have called us to honor your name with our presence and our service.

Gracious God, our prayer is that we may give a good accounting of our stewardship.

We have received the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ as a gift, and we have been made his disciples.

We pray that we shall be good and faithful stewards, sharing with others the light that Jesus has given to us, ever giving and serving from a willing heart. We have freely received, let us continue to freely give!

Hear and know that the Lord is good. God forgives those who are contrite in heart. Live in peace, for God’s steadfast love endures forever.

Let us now rise to serve God. Let us renew our commitment to Christ’s call to servanthood, obedience and sacrifice to establish a world of justice, prosperity and peace.

We rise as one to love and serve the Lord, as we follow the Lamb that has conquered! AMEN

Prayer for today

O Savior of all, in you we have found our answers to the needs of our lives and the world. We confess that, at times, we are reluctant to share the good news of your love and power with those whose lives we touch. We shrink back from being your witnesses. Forgive us. Cause your spirit to move within us, inspiring and emboldening us to share the good news we have found in you. This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen
