Gracious God, we offer to You from what You have already given us.
given us discerning minds: let us use them to seek your wisdom. You have
given us free will: let us use it to
fulfill your commandments. You have given us seeking hearts: let us use
them to see God in every one, and everyone. You have given us talent and
skill: let us use them to do your will, build your kingdom, and glorify
your Name. Almighty God, we offer You our treasure, our time, and our
obedience as a holy oblation in response to Your generous Love.
the shade of your mercy over those for whom we pray today.
