Offering Prayer: Isaiah 1: 10-18

Here’s a prayer of dedication inspired by Isaiah 1: 10-18.  It comes from the Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren website.

Prayer for the Offering
(inspired by Isaiah 1: 10-18)

Hearing the witness of your prophet Isaiah, O Lord,
help us “cease to do evil,” but rather “learn to do good.”
Lead us to “seek justice, rescue the oppressed,
defend the orphan, plead for the widow.”
Teach us the wise use of the resources you provide,
both personally and as a congregation.
We dedicate these offerings to your glory
and our neighbor’s good.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
