Oklahoma Mites Update

Our God has done amazing things! Reflecting back over this past biennium, through our faith, we know our Oklahoma mites have served as God has ordained. What a blessing to have been a part of it all! We can be confident that our pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar bills have carried the good news of His salvation. To the glory of God, His Kingdom continues to increase! Thank you for sharing your blessings, so that His will can be done.  ~Delia Collard, VP of Gospel Outreach

LWML Mite Boxes

 
The Widow's MiteChildren Mite Box
75th Anniversary Mite Box

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth, but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on" (Mark 12:41-43).

 
Mite Box Prayers

I ask You, Lord, these mites to bless... It is not much, I must confess My box of coins all by itself that sits upon a desk or shelf. But, joined with others they unite to help us spread Christ's holy light. So, help me, Lord, this box to fill, live our mission, and do Your will.

O Lord of love, as I return these mites to You, guide my willingness to share the bountiful wealth You have given me with others so that Your kingdom may grow through the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Savior. In His name, Amen.

Lord, You have been bountiful in Your blessings to me. Accept my humble gift in grateful appreciation. May these few mites be joined with many others to accomplish Your will in bringing Christ to all people. In Jesus' name, Amen

Keep me mindful every day, Lord, of Your mercies, and grant that I gratefully dedicate myself to You with all that I have. May these mites be bountifully blessed to work Your will in the harvest fields of those needing to hear of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. In His name. Amen.
