Offering Prayer Rev. Yvonne Gilmore
As members of your human family, O God, we celebrate new
life. When a baby is born, and when the church grows, we give
thanks and praise. As we offer our gifts today, we ask your blessings
upon them. Use and empower these gifts, O God, with power only
you can give. We pray in giving them that these tithes and offerings
will grow your reign on earth: Now and forever, Amen.
