Prayer To Be Good Stewards

Lord God, You alone
are the source of every good gift,
of the vast array of our universe,
and the mystery of each human life.
We praise You and we thank You
for Your great power
and Your tender, faithful love.

Everything we are
and everything we have is your gift,
and after having created us,
You have given us into the keeping
of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

In the name and spirit of Jesus,
we commit ourselves
to be good stewards
of the gifts entrusted to us,
to share our time, our talent,
our material gifts
as an outward sign
of the treasure we hold in Jesus.
