Prayer for the Offering
(inspired by 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-5, 13-17)
O God our Father,
who through our Lord Jesus Christ has loved us
and through grace has given us eternal comfort and good hope,
make our hearts strong for the work which lies ahead.
Indeed, help us to “not be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed,”
and to “stand firm and hold fast”
as we cooperate with your Spirit in the holy task of bearing fruit.
These offerings are part of your harvest.
Help us to put them to good use. Amen.
