Offering Prayer: Transform the World

Here’s an offering prayer (prayer of dedication) for the season of Easter.  It was written by Laura Jaquith Barlett, and posted on the Ministry Matters website.

Prayer for the Offering

Generous and surprising God,
when we thought that death
had claimed your only Son,
you amazed us with the resurrection.

Surprise us again
with your ability to turn these humble offerings
into gifts that will transform the world
through our witness to your love.
We lay our very lives at your feet, O God,
knowing that you will use us
to proclaim and embody the gospel. Amen.
