A Prayer of Abundance

A Prayer of Abundance

We know we are cared for by an abundant Provider Let us choose to be grateful and trusting.
We know that we have enough and that what we need will always be provided.
Let us choose to be content and generous.
We know that our choices matter for ourselves, for others and future generations
Help us to live consciously and creatively, celebrating the signs of your New Creation that is present and coming.
Creator, who made us to seek the greater good of your kingdom,
Guide us to spend our time, talents and resources on what matters most.
Teach us to be free,
to live without worry, fear or greed in the freedom of your abundance.
Give us our daily bread, as we share ours with the hungry.
We give thanks for the precious gift of life!

Taken from Free by Mark Scandrette (227)

“The Gospel invites us into a life of radical contentment, generosity, gratitude, trust and simplicity.  We can re-imagine our assumptions about time, money and material possessions to pursue a life of greater freedom, leveraging our time and resources towards what matters most.” (17)
