Dear Lord,

Teach me to be generous
as You have been generous with me.
Teach me that all I am and have
are gifts from You.
And gifts, Lord,
are meant to be shared.

Show me the joys of generosity.
Help me to understand that others,
perhaps unknown to me,
depend on me for help.

Remind me that my world, my parish,
need “Good Samaritans” to heal the wounds of our times.

Make me a gift to others in Your name.

Lord Jesus,

You came to show us
that the meaning of life consists in giving.

You told us
that those who cling too tightly to what they have,
without thought of You or others,
end up losing everything.

You offered us
new values by which to measure the worth of a person’s life.
Help us to realize it is not temporal success,
or riches, or fame
that gives life meaning.
Rather, it is the service rendered to You and others
that brings fulfillment and makes our lives worthwhile.

May all our service help build the kingdom of God,
and may our obedience bring true freedom,
our generosity increase love,
our sacrifices bear much fruit,
and our death lead to eternal life.
