Offertory Prayer

Your offering last week empowered ministry within our congregation and in response to the needs of our community. It also helped support the work of ministries beyond the local church, such as the quadrennial gathering of United Methodist youth and adults that happened last month in Orlando at YOUTH 2015! This event brought more than 4800 people together to challenge our youth to embrace their Methodist identity and to “Go On” to a deeper relationship with Christ. The testimonies of lives changed are powerful, and the impact will go on for years. These kinds of cooperative efforts across our connection are made possible thanks to the way the people of The United Methodist Church live and give connectionally. I invite you to give generously as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.

August 2, 2015 – Tenth Sunday after Pentecost / in Kingdomtide

Generous God, we rejoice in your wonderful power! In Christ, you give us the true bread from heaven. You satisfy our spiritual hunger and thirst, filling our hearts with your abundant love. Help us to work not for perishable goods, but for love that endures. May these offerings contribute to your nurturing work in the world. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen. (John 6:24-35)

August Offertory Prayers were written by the Rev. Rosanna Anderson, Associate Director of Stewardship at Discipleship Ministries, The United Methodist Church.

Daily Prayer, Sunday, February 20, 2011

Morning

Invitatory Psalm 24
The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it,
the world, and those who live in it;
for he has founded it on the seas,
and established it on the rivers,
....

Psalms 90, 92, 93

Daily Lectionary Reading, 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-23

Lectio Divina
Do not deceive yourselves. If you think that you are wise in this age, you should become fools so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.... (1 Corinthians 3:18-19a)

See, I have longed for your precepts; in your righteousness give me life (Psalm 119:40).

Prayer: I give you thanks for all those who have preceded me, prepared a way for me, supported me on my own journey, and who continue to help me every day. And I give my thanks to you, O Lord, for being the origin of all that I have accomplished and can accomplish. Help me to remember that I can not do what you need me to to do without your continuing, continuous help. Amen.

Evening
Psalms 108, 109
