Stewardship Prayer

Heavenly Father,
September is a month that offers hope
for things to come:
our daily life has a new rhythm,
there are new beginnings
and new encounters,
and a new energy is seen in the
parish community.

In this month of accelerating activities,
keep us mindful that we live for Christ
and not for ourselves.
Give us the strength and
the wisdom to be
“Doers” of Your Word,
and not just listeners;
to be good stewards of
the Gospel each and every day.

In this month of transition
help us find a deeper spiritual
balance in our lives
that takes time for you,
listens to the promptings of your Spirit
and give us hope that
the body of Christ
has well begun the transformation of
a troubled world.
We ask this through your Son,
Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
