An Offering Prayer

Lord,

Because you are you and we are your children

Because you created and we were created

Because you died and rose again and we yearn to follow you

Because you whisper within our hearts still today:

Lord, we give.

We give you ourselves.

We give you tithes and offerings, symbols of a spiritual practice of denying ourselves.

We give in hope of sharing not just funds, but faith in Christ Jesus.

Lord,

Because you are you and we are your children –

Take these gifts we give you.

Bless this sharing.

Break open our hearts and

Give us to the world as your church.  Amen.
