Help us become more focused on loving and caring for our families and our neighbors. Open our hearts to the realization that we are called to give up something of ourselves so that life can flourish. When we give this way we are changed and will make a difference in the lives of others.
Jesus, help us to commit ourselves to be good stewards of the gifts entrusted to us, to share our time, our talent and our treasure as an outward sign of our love. We pray this in thanksgiving for the many blessings we have received.
