OFFERTORY PRAYER OF THE WEEK -- MARCH 24, 2019

THIRD SUNDAY IN LENT

God of love and forgiveness, we offer our gifts this morning, knowing that we resemble those to whom Isaiah prophesied, “Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?” We have chased after things that we thought would bring joy, and then found them to be empty and unfulfilling. Lord, we long to return to you and invest ourselves in things that last and that bring lasting joy, as we seek you in every moment, with all we have and all we are. We pray this in Christ’s holy name. Amen. (Isaiah 55:1-9)
