"Do not store up riches for yourselves here on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and robbers break in and steal. Instead, store up riches for yourselves in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and robbers cannot break in and steal. For your heart will always be where your riches are." - Matthew 6:19
Dear Lord, we give thanks for the treasures in our lives.
For those precious moments, people and friendships we hold dear.
We give thanks for your precious gift of grace, and the sacrifice of your son made once for us all.
We give thanks for the gift of new hope, new beginnings, fresh starts.
As faithful stewards we ask for wisdom that we may seek to use our gifts and treasures wisely…
That they may be used to build your kingdom…
To spread your good news…
And to bring all who hear your word safely home.
Equip us with the creativity to use all that we have, all that we are, to serve you in our homes, communities and work places.
May our lives echo your precious gift to us.
In your sons name we pray.
