Season After Pentecost, Part 2 Worship Planning Series

Seventh Sunday After Pentecost 2019, Year C

As Christians and as United Methodists, most of us assume that we are expected to pray. The founder of Methodism, John Wesley, listed prayer as one of the spiritual disciplines to which we are to attend to daily. According to a Pew Research report, 55 percent of American Christians say they pray every day. These persons rely on prayer when making personal decisions and consider prayer and essential part of their identity. There are literally millions of books of prayers, books on how to pray, and books about the power of prayer. We assume that since Jesus prayed, that means that we also should pray.

Offertory Prayer

Heavenly Giver of All Good Gifts, we ask you this morning to bless these tithes and offerings, which we give in humble gratitude. You have listened to us when we’ve prayed, and often we have been far more ready to ask than to listen for your answer. You know every need and every want. Loving God, like a parent, you love us enough to not answer every request, but to give instead that which will lead us to those choices that bring lasting joy. So, help us to fill every breath with gratitude! We pray in the name of our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen. (Luke 11:1-13)
