You are the God of full pockets
and the God of pockets zipped shut;
the God of empty pockets and pockets with holes,
the God of inside-out pockets,
and pockets stuffed with treasures.
You are the God of our pockets.
You came to show us that life is not to be pocketed
but to be given freely, joyfully, sacrificially.
You are the God of full hearts
and the God of hearts that are empty;
the God of hard hearts and closed hearts,
the God of the heartsick
and those who have lost heart.
You are the God of our hearts.
You came to show us that we need not be disheartened
by the stress of financial worries.
You know our inmost being:
connect our hearts with our pockets.
Be the pacemaker which fills our lives
with the steady rhythm of generosity,
our pockets opening and closing in love.
Accept these gifts today. Amen.
