Thanksgiving Offering Prayer

Here’s an offering prayer with congregational involvement.  It was written by Carol Penner, pastor at Lendrum M.B. Church in Edmonton, and posted on her Leading in Worship website.  She suggests that the worship leader raise their hand when it’s time for the congregation to join in on the “THANK YOU!”

Offering Prayer for Thanksgiving

For all the ways you love us, we say THANK YOU!
For the ways you provide for us, we say THANK YOU!
For the opportunity to give, we say THANK YOU!
For the kingdom work this offering will do, we say THANK YOU!
For letting us be a part of your work, we say THANK YOU!

May the thankful words on our lips
and the thankful meditations of our hearts be acceptable to you,
O God, our rock and our redeemer.  Amen.
