Stewardship Prayer

Loving God, help me to realize that my Church is composed of people like me.

I help make it what it is

It will be friendly, if I am.  Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them

It will do great work, if I work

It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous  giver.

It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, if I invite and bring them.

It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a Church with a noble spirit, if I,  who make it what it is, and filled with these same things.

Therefore, with your help O God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all things that I want my Church to be.

I ask this in Jesus' name, Amen!
