A Prayer When Seeking to Help Needy Members of the Congregation

Author requests article critique
Heavenly Father, You are the Maker, Sustainer, and Re-maker of all things.
You are all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful, and righteous in all your ways.
We bring our poorer brothers and sisters before You now,
not because You are ignorant of them,
or because wealthier Christians are somehow more righteous than they,
but because we are all in great need of You.
We pray You will help those among us who are richer in this world's goods
to count it an honour to serve Christ as they give to their needier brothers and sisters.
We pray too that You will grant those in need
the grace to receive Your blessing through others
with humble and thankful hearts,
seeking as they do to follow Jesus Christ ever more faithfully and boldly.
We ask these things of You, Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ
not because without us You will do nothing, but because without You we can do nothing.
We agree that faith without works is dead,
but we know that if we try to help the poor out of fleshly wisdom and its pride, we will all fail together before You.
Only by giving and receiving with joyful, open hearts and minds
can we all be one in Christ Jesus,
suffering with those who suffer at this time,
and walking together with You to a place where we may all rejoice together. Amen.
