Offering Prayer: Proper 26C

Here’s a prayer of dedication inspired by two of the suggested scripture readings for Proper 26C.  It was written by Jennifer Watts.

Prayer of Dedication
(inspired by Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:1-4 and Luke 19: 1-10)

Like Habukkuk, the prophet of old,
we search for the ways of God in the world.
We bring these offerings as symbols of our commitment
to continue the search for peace with justice
in our local and global communities.
We offer these gifts because we know that change is possible.
Like Zacchaeus, we know that God’s love can work through us
transforming and enabling us to live in God’s way.
We offer these gifts for the transformation of ourselves
and our world for the good of all. Amen.
