Stewardship Prayer Of Confession | Blessed To Be A Blessing

Good morning! We finished up our month of stewardship last Sunday with a celebration of our blessings. We used the UCC materials, Blessed to be a Blessing and – like last week – I wrote liturgy for the occasion. Feel free to use/adapt!

*Just a note – I used All Things Bright And Beautiful as the opening hymn!

Stewardship Sunday Prayer of Confession | Blessed To Be A Blessing
2014 (C) Sarah E. Weaver

God of blessings,
     you shower our world and our lives
          with your presence,
          with your love
          and with your guidance.
Yet so often we do not see you.
We focus on the things that are seen
     and not the things that are unseen.
We allow ourselves to be consumed by little annoyances
     and frustrating encounters.
Help us to pause, O God.
Open our eyes to see the bright and beautiful blessings that surround us.
Open our hearts to receive those blessings.
And open our minds to discern how we can be a blessing to those around us.
Amen.
