5 Offertory Prayers Of Thanksgiving

  1. Loving God, we come before you in gratitude for your abundant blessings. You are our provider, and from your hand comes all we have. In 1 Chronicles 29:14 it says, "Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand."

    As we give our tithes and offerings today, may it be a reflection of our thankfulness for all that you have graciously given us. We offer these gifts not because you need them, but as an act of worship and a joyful response to your love. May they be used to spread your word and serve your people. Amen.

  2. Almighty Father, we acknowledge that everything belongs to you. As it says in Psalm 24:1, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it." We are grateful for your provision and protection over our lives. As we give today, may we honor you with joyful hearts and a spirit of generosity. May these offerings be used to further your kingdom and bring hope to those in need.

    This offering is a small token of our immense appreciation for your constant provision. Guide its use to further your ministry and bring hope and healing to those in need. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.

  3. Gracious Lord, as Jesus taught, we should not store up our treasures on earth, but in heaven. In Matthew 6:19-20 Jesus told us, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal."

    Today we give with open hearts, knowing that our true treasure is found in you. With open hearts, we offer these gifts to support your work and build your kingdom here on earth. May they be multiplied according to your will. Amen.

  4. Creator God, you open your generous hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. As you say in Psalm 145:16, "You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing."

    We thank you for providing all that we need and more. As we give today, we pray that these church offerings will be used to provide for those in need and bring your love to the world. We return a portion of your blessings with gratitude. Use these offerings to expand your church, strengthen our community, and share your love with the world. Amen.

  5. Merciful God, we confess that sometimes we hold back from giving generously. Forgive us for our selfishness and help us trust in your promise that those who sow generously will reap generously.

    In 2 Corinthians 9:6 you tell us, "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously." May our giving be a reflection of your abundant grace and love. Let it bring hope and transformation to those in need. Let these offerings be seeds of love and compassion. Amen.

All of our staff can use this software and they do regularly. We use it to track…literally anything a church could possibly need to track regarding it's attenders.

Breeze has been a great asset to our church and congregation. Especially from an administrative standpoint, it has been the most adaptable and easiest church database I have ever used. The features from blast emails to giving on-line, and texting have been one of our greatest assets. Thank you!

We switched from a major, web-based ChMS to Breeze and our decision is confirmed every day. We are a medium size church and we use Breeze for contributions, member management, event checkin and a few other applications custom to our church. I had trouble getting any staff to use our previous ChMS but almost all staff are using Breeze. The product is very well designed, extremely easy to learn and use and customer service is incredible.

Breeze has opened the communication highway for our congregation and staff, with very little training. Because members can update their own records and search easily for other members - and map their locations, send emails and text right from Breeze, they love it and our data is more real-time accurate. Our ministries are stronger, because they can trust the data in Breeze, which is easily accessed anywhere, anytime.

Breeze is the first ChMS my volunteers have actually embraced. That's because it's so easy to use. The software is very flexible and gives us the opportunity to make decisions based on actual data we've collected and not just hunches or stories we believe to be true.

I cannot say enough about Breeze. Their customer service is so friendly, you feel like you have friends and family helping you get started, they're prompt to reply and will do whatever they can to help you get things sorted out. It's been so easy to learn, our staff is loving it and best of all even our staff who are not computer savvy find it a breeze (pun intended). We are just thrilled by our choice.
