Christian Stewards: People of the Resurrection

For those immersed in the secular world, Easter is long over.

Stewardship Prayer for May

Loving Father,

During this Easter season, we rejoice in your son, who has renewed us in freedom and joy through the mystery of his resurrection.

We have been called to proclaim his Gospel; not because we are good enough, holy enough, or talented enough; but because you wanted us to have this gift and this responsibility.

Give us the courage to be faithful to this call; help us make every day of our lives an experience of Easter.

And keep us ever mindful of our charge: to go in peace to love and serve the Lord; that as stewards of your world we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to transform it, bring it justice and peace, and offer it, in gratitude, back to you.

We pray this in Jesus’ name.
