"Being Good Stewards - Growing God's Gifts"
I pray that You give me the wisdom to guide me on this faith journey of being a good steward.
Help me to understand that my life, my family and friends, my work, my civic and parish communities and your divine life within me are all gifts from you.
Open up my heart and my mind so that I may use these marvelous gifts to grow your kingdom here on Earth.
I pray. Lord that You welcome me into heaven at the end of my life and that You are pleased with what I have done with all Your gifts.
Generous and loving God,
You call us to be disciples of your son Jesus and good stewards of all your many gifts. Open our minds and hearts to a greater awareness and deeper appreciation of your countless blessings.
Transform us through the power of your Spirit to nurture a stewardship way of life marked by faith-filled prayer, service to our neighbor and generous sharing.
Teach us to be faithful servants of your gifts of life, faith, work, family and friends and our parish and civic communities.
May we return to you many times over these gifts entrusted to us and, in this way, grow your kingdom among us.
