A Prayer Before We Give

dar-pan

Heavenly Father,

This year, as every year, we commit ourselves to be people who give to missionaries at home and around the world. We continually strive to be individuals who help the poor and bring hope to people in need. We are also intent on helping our own children, families, widows and others who make this congregation their home.

We vow to continue to worship God in prayer, Bible study, meditation, singing and the Lord’s Supper as acts of righteousness. We also promise to continue to reach out benevolently and evangelistically as acts of justice to our community.

We remember that every dollar we have, whether those we put in the collection plate or the dollars that stay in our personal bank accounts, are all to be used for the glory of God. This year, as every year, we are reminded that we are honored stewards of Your money that You provide us through our sources of income.

Our gift of money is important to us because it is sometimes hard for us to give up. We offer it to you Father and we look forward to seeing how it will be used to bring You glory.

The offering we make this year is more than money. We also offer you our time, energy, and most of all, our hearts. We pray our hearts will continually strive to serve ways to glorify you through worship and acts of service.

May you receive all the glory!

In Christ, Amen.
