This offering prayer was inspired by Matthew
1 4: - 13 , the account of how Jesus uses five small loaves and two fish to feed a vast crowd of hungry people. 2 1
(inspired by Matthew
1 4: - 13 2 1)
the gifts we bring are so small in comparison to the vast needs in our world—
nowhere near enough to save the thousands dying of starvation all around the world,
or even to meet the needs of the hungry and homeless in our city.
Yet we have brought what we can.
As You once multiplied the five small loaves and two fish,
multiply these gifts as well,
so that, once again, the hungry may receive all they need, and more.
