Chosen & Precious

Fifth Sunday of Easter, Year A

This series is about Jesus and about us. It’s a celebration of the gift of Resurrection and the new life that it brings to us and to the world.

Offertory Prayer

Loving God, as we offer our gifts to you, we know you see us more clearly than the world sees us, or even than we see ourselves. We have made foolish choices, valued things that were not worthy, and yet you have claimed us, deemed us precious, counted us worth saving by the death and Resurrection of your Son. No gift that we can offer can come close to balancing out your relentless love, but we give them with a heart of gratitude. We give ourselves, in the name of the one you gave for us. In Christ, we pray. Amen. (I Peter 2:2-10)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Amado Dios, cuando ofrecemos nuestras ofrendas a ti, sabemos que nos ves más claramente de lo que el mundo nos ve, o incluso de lo que nos vemos a nosotros mismos. Aunque hemos tomado decisiones tontas y hemos valorado cosas que no eran dignas; tu nos has considerado tan valiosos que nos has redimidos con la muerte y la resurrección de tu Hijo. Nada de lo que podamos ofrecer puede compararse al amor que tú nos das, por eso las ofrendas que traemos a ti, las damos con un corazón agradecido. Entregamos nuestras vidas a ti, en el nombre que es sobre todo nombre, en el nombre de Cristo Jesús. Amén (1 Pedro 2:2-10).
