Offering Prayer: Widow's Mite

Here’s an offering prayer inspired by the story of the widow’s mite (Mark 12, Luke 21).  It comes from the Ministry Matters website.

Offering Prayer
(inspired by Mark 12:41-44 and Luke 21:1-4)

O Lord,
you graciously pour out your blessings on us.
Your gifts surround us.

Despite our abundance,
help us see the widow’s gift,
for we long to give as she did,
gladly giving all she had.

All we have
is a gift from your hand.
Help us loosen our hands,
giving to work of this church on your behalf,
for in giving freely to you,
we gain the opportunity
to live abundant lives!
