Prayer of Stewardship
O Lord, forgive our fears
that so stifle our stewardship.
Forgive our giving in and our giving up
instead of giving ourselves
to Christ's mission of love.
Remind us that our hope
is in standing up and risking,
in taking our stewardship seriously.
Help us to remember, O Lord, that
the stewardship question is not really,
How much will we give?
The stewardship question is,
How will we spend what we have been given?
We pray it will be faithfully
