Stewardship Prayer

My church is composed of people like me, I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly, if I am friendly.
It will be holy, if I am holy.
Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them,
It will do great work, if I work.
It will be prayerful, if I pray.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring others into its worship, if I invite and bring them.
It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
of compassion, charity and mercy, if I, who make it what it is,
am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I now dedicate myself to the task of being all the
things I want my Church to be.
