O God our Creator and Loving Father,
without any merit of our own, you freely gave us
out existence and enriched it with your
precious gifts of faith, hope, and love.
Help us share God’s mercy with one another and give
as generously as we ourselves have received from you.
We offer the gifts of ourselves, our time, talents, and
treasures as true acts of faith that reflect our love for you
and our neighbor.
Accept our offerings as a token of gratitude
for all you have done.
Help us to reach out to others as you, our Lord and God,
have reached out to us.
May our faithful stewardship bear witness
to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ in our lives.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen
