How can we thank you enough for all you have given us, Lord?

We have so much, more than enough to supply all our needs.

As we present our tithes and offerings today, make us mindful of the people, especially the children, whose earthly needs we are called to supply.

In deepest gratitude, we offer ourselves back to you, for your service and your will.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
