Description

Most churches take up an offering every Sunday, so you don’t have to change anything in a service to begin to enrich people’s understanding of God’s generosity. Across a year you could probably teach and pray through a whole theology of work, divine provision, money and generosity, during offertory prayers.

Themes might include:


  • Gratitude for work.

  • Gratitude for being created with skills.

  • Recognition of the need for stewardship.

  • Recognition of God as the source of money.

  • Gratitude for money .

  • Gratitude for the privilege of being able to give.

  • Gratitude for our workplaces, your bosses and colleagues

Rationale

Every workplace is a mission field, where Christians are sent to minister. Including church members workplaces in the prayer life of the church, integrates your churches ministry and mission. As God is praised for his impact in their lives, we can trust that God will continue to create opportunities to further the influence of his kingdom, and its principles in the vocations of his people.

Outcome

God is praised and prayer is given a missional focus.
