Stewardship Prayer

Everliving God, whose will it is that all should come to you through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him, that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection.  Guide us we pray, as we consider our stewardship, so to share our time, talent, and treasure that we may strengthen our own lives and reach out and enrich the lives of others.  Give us cheerful, grateful hearts, our Father, for all your mercies, and make us mindful of the needs of others, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
