Offering Prayer: A Fruitful Harvest

Prayer for the Offering

Let us pray.

O God,
who desires good for all creatures,
satisfy our hunger not just for food,
but for freedom, truth, justice and love.

O Risen Christ,
you revealed yourself to us
as one who gives to the poor and cares for all people.
We dedicate our lives and our offerings to your service.

O Holy Spirit,
bless these gifts and abide in our hearts
so that our gifts and our actions
may live out our faith,
glorify God,
and bring forth a fruitful harvest for the kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
