Spiritual Prayer for Your Finances #3

Spiritual Prayers for your Finances #3 is on Sound Giving!

Giving joyfully. Father, I choose to give cheerfully and willingly, just as You have given so cheerfully and willingly to me (2 Cor. 9:7; Eph. 5:1-2).

Giving firstfruits. Lord, I will honor You by giving the first and best of all my income, not my leftovers (Prov.3:9: Mal. 1:6-8, 3:10; 1 Cor. 16:2).

Giving sacrificially. In light of Your love, it's a privilege to give even out of poverty. I choose to trust You enough to give even beyond my apparent ability (mk. 12:41-44; 2 Cor. 8:1-4).

Supporting ministry. You have instructed us to support those in ministry. May my gifts enable them to serve You more fully as they advance Your kingdom locally and abroad (1 Cor. 9:11-14).

Helping the needy. Lord, with the compassion You have put in me, I will give generously, without a grudging heart, to those in need--whether in my community or around the world. When I give to the poor, I'm ministering to You. Whom do You want me to help today
(Jas. 2:15-16: Dt. 15:10; Prov. 19:17; Mt. 25:40)?

Giving for God's glory. Father, You are the One who makes me rich in every way so that I can always be generous. I want my generosity to result in thanksgiving and glory to You, not to me
(2 Cor. 9:11; Mt. 6:1).

God truly blesses those who trust in Him, especially in today's economy where we can't do anything but rely on Him alone.

Don't know how we have done it, other than to say we haven't but God has taken care of us on a daily basis. Tomorrow, truly will take care of itself.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I am learning a good lesson through these posts. I am glad you decided to do this when it is probably needed by many of us.

Thanks for the prayers for my sister. I have another request for my daughter who has a cyst on her brain for years and has now filled with fluid causing fluid on the brain and other symptoms.
