Prayer for the Twelfth Sunday of Pentecost Used with permission
Creator and Architect of the Universe: Like Solomon so long ago, we pray to you and ask for wisdom-wisdom to realize the transient nature of what the world says wealth, wisdom to invest our time and talent in things that will last and will have eternal significance. What we offer to you this morning is but a token of what you are due, but we offer it as a reminder that is we invest wisely in thing that help usher in your Kingdom of love and compassion, we will never be found wanting. In the name of the Christ who held nothing back, we pray. Amen. (1 Kings 2:10-12; 3:3-14)
