A prayer for today.

God of abundance,

We know that we are all called to live simply and in freedom with respect to the riches we have—whether they are in the form of material possessions, talents, reputation, or influence.

We know that we are called to labor with Christ to help the poor and powerless in some way.

Encourage us, challenge us, and empower us to give countercultural witness to the rampant competition and materialism around us.

Amen.
