You Generously Give Us Our Daily Bread

Lord God, heavenly Father,
you generously give us your blessing and our daily bread.
Preserve us from greed
and awaken our hearts
that we willingly share your blessed gifts
with our neighbors in need.
Make us faithful stewards of your gifts
and be gracious to us
when our time of stewardship is done
and we come before your judgment;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever.
