Prayer for the Offering: Lent


Here’s an offering prayer for Lent, Year B (2012).  It was written by Jeff Shrowder.

Prayer for the Offering
(inspired by Genesis 9:8-17; 17:1-7, 15-16)

Covenant-keeping God,
whose promise is rock solid;
we offer our lives
and these signs of our daily living
not simply that bread might fill empty stomachs,
but that, through the working of your Holy Spirit,
empty lives may be filled,
friendless, lonely lives find intimacy,
depressed lives given hope.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
