Almighty God I give thanks for all that I have and all that I am.
Most of all I give thanks for the great gift of your Son, Jesus.
I pray that I may be a good stewards – that I will follow faithfully, serve joyfully, give generously, live responsibly and possess sensibly.
In gratitude for the abundant gifts you have so graciously given to me; I return to you the first fruits of these gifts, through acts of service and by generously sharing all that you have entrusted to me.
Heavenly Father, by your Holy Spirit – Give me knowledge and Understanding, help me to be a gift to others in your name.
I make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
