STEWARDSHIP PRAYER

 

God our Father,

You are the source of life
and every blessing.

All that we have comes from You.

Help us to walk in your ways
as faithful disciples of Jesus.

As good stewards of

your many blessings
teach us to receive your

gifts gratefully,
cultivate them responsibly,

share them in
justice and love
with others, and return

them with increase
to You, our Father.

We ask this through Christ our Lord,

Who came that we might have life,
and have it abundantly.

Amen
