Lord of All Good Gifts, help me to be wise
this year in my gift giving and spending.
Help me to make the best use of my time
as I look for gifts. Keep me from making
my shopping and spending an end unto
itself and help me refrain from wasting
either. Let me bring glory to you in both my
lavish love and my frugality. Amen.
