Opening Prayer

Generous God, You are so abundant in the mysterious ways You gift and expand life. Teach us today to be like You, in the way we invest ourselves in the people and situations You present to me. Give me a generous heart in absorbing, judging and giving. You reap beyond what we can ever sow. You do so much with so little! You are awesome, Generous God! Keep us faithful to the message of Jesus, and not be overwhelmed and driven by our need to be publicly acknowledged and recognized as holy and generous. Gentle us to trust that You know, and You are all Who matters. Quiet our prayer so that we enter an intimate and even wordless conversation with You, our Generous and Faithful Friend.
