Stewardship Prayer of the Month:
O Merciful God, You are the provider of all that we are and all that we have. You open wide your hand to provide for the needs of every living creature. Make us always grateful for your loving Mercy and grant that we may be faithful stewards of your gifts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with You and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God forever and ever. Amen.
-- No, it is something very near to you, already in your mouths and in your hearts; you have only to carry it out.
Moses is imploring those he led out of Egypt to return to God with all their heart and soul. He reminds them that the way to do this is not found in some distant or far-off place. So it is with stewardship. It is already in our mouths and in our hearts; we have only to carry it out.
