Offering Prayer: Multiply our gifts

Based on Matthew 14:15-21, the feeding of the five thousand.

Merciful God,
the gifts we bring are so small in comparison to the vast needs around our world—
nowhere near enough to save the thousands now dying of starvation and malnutrition.
Yet we bring what we can.

As You once multiplied the five small loaves and two fish,
we ask that You would multiply these gifts as well,
so that, once again, the hungry may receive all they need, and more.
