Wall Street, of course, is the film in which Gordon Gekko, the Michael Douglas character, says, “Greed is good.”



Prayer Source = James G. Kirk, When We Gather:  A Book of Prayers for Worship, Year C (Philadelphia, PA:  Geneva Press, 1985)

Corresponds to Proper 21


Said in unison:

God of grace, we stand in need of your forgiveness.  Desiring to be rich, we fall into temptation.  Love of money ensnares us.  Enough does not satisfy:  the more we acquire, the greater our greed becomes.  We become prosperous in our own eyes, and poor in your sight.  Rescue us from self-destruction through Christ, the giver of life.
