Elohim, you are the Mighty Creator, the LORD God, God Most High. There is none like you. You own all of creation. You provide abundantly for your beloved. Thank you for the faithful who offer back a portion of what you’ve given in order to support the congregation, its leaders and the buildings of worship. Grant us the sincerity and uprightness of heart to continue giving generously as you provide. Honor our offerings in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own. I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you.” (1 Chronicles 29: 16-17 ESV)
