Space for Grace: Devotional

Thank you for Praying With Us!

We have been on a spiritual journey together to prayerfully consider how the Lord is calling us to grow in the grace of giving. Thank you for joining our congregation in praying through weekly devotions throughout the Space for Grace campaign.

Campaign devotions can be found here:
September 7–13; September 14–20; September 21–27; September 28–October 4; October 5–11

If you would like to continue to pray, we offer the Prayer of Dedication (adapted from Colossians 1 and 1 Chronicles 29) from our October 11 worship services as inspiration:

Leader:    All things, Lord Christ, have been created through you and for you.
All:          You are before all things, and in you all things hold together.
Leader:    You are the head of the body, the church;
All:          Blessed are you, O Lord, for all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours;
Leader:    Yours, O Lord, are the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty;
All:          yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted above all things.
Leader:    Riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all.
All:          In your hand are power and might; and it is in your hand to make great and to give strength to all people.
Leader:    And now, our God, we give thanks to you and praise your glorious name.
All:          But who are we that we should make this offering?
Leader:    For all things come from you, and of your own do we give to you.
All:          O Lord our God, all this that we give to your house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own.
Leader:    We know, Lord God, that you search the heart, and take pleasure in goodness, righteousness, and generosity;
All:          in uprightness of heart we freely offer these your blessings back to you.
Leader:    freely and joyously, we offer them and ourselves to you that your name may be honored by us, your ways known
                through us, your grace apparent in us
All:          Keep for ever such purposes and thoughts in our hearts, and direct our loves more and more towards you, Lord Christ.

Thanks again for your prayers!
