O Jesus, who became poor that I may be rich, make me rich not in wealth but in the gold of reconciliation, the platinum of forgiveness, the silver of fellowship that honors You and builds community where Christ is known and served. The true desire of my soul, O God, is to recognize my total dependence upon You; to be released from the prison of human idolatry that wealth, power, possessions, and fame guard. Free me, Lord, that I may be bound only to You. Use me, and every resource at my disposal, to Your redemptive glory: a free gift that none can afford, but all are free to receive from Christ the Lord. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
