Prayers about our motives for caring

Lord God, you made us for yourself and for relationships with each other. Teach us to be as open and generous in our dealings as you are with us and to give attention and care to all we meet. Amen

Generous God, save us from undue emphasis on our own needs that we may attend to those of  others’. As we have freely received, so may we freely give; in the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
