PRAYER OF DEDICATION
Holy God who gives and then gives more, we pass the plate and place a gift of money to sustain the mission of your church, here and around the world. We are reminded that we have other gifts as well, not noted on our bank statements or balance sheets. You have given each of us spiritual gifts, not to make us rich but to make the world richer, more compassionate and more just, because we were here. Open our eyes to those gifts, and where and when you would have us use them. In the Savior’s name, we pray. Amen.
JOYS & CONCERNS
Almighty God, open our hearts to the surprising ways you offer to us your love and your presence. Help us to truly believe in the wondrous ways that you work in our lives. Open our heart to your guidance and give us the power, boldness, and a wisdom to serve you. Bless us Lord Jesus, as we come before you in our quiet time of prayer…
