A Stewardship Prayer

Almighty God, whose loving hand has given us all that we possess; Grant us grace that we may honour thee with our substance through the support of our parish church. 

Filled with your love, we respond to your call to be disciples of your Son.  Unite us as a community of your disciples. Open our hearts and minds to your abundant grace so that we might become good stewards of your gifts.

As good stewards, teach us to receive your gifts gratefully, nurture them responsibly, share them selflessly, and return them to you with increase, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
