A Prayer For Good Stewardship: Gracious God, you have invited us to be stewards, and not just any ordinary stewards, but good stewards of creation and all that it has and is. Grant your people an awareness that what we have should always be perceived as potential instruments in the amazing work of sharing the love of Jesus with others. Continue to provide the encouragement of your Holy Spirit as we struggle with a culture that is driven by materialism and individualism, greed and selfishness. Continue to provide for us wisdom and teachers who are wise, for the gift of wisdom is important as we discern how to be the best stewards of what we have. With each passing day, grow our understanding of both gratitude and generosity. Continue to shape the attitudes we have in regard to our belongings, money and other resources. Let us become an alternative vision of how life is lived for people instead of possessions, and how the making of healthy relationships is worth letting go of some of our stuff. This is our prayer offered in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
