Prayer For Giving
Heavenly Father, You are our only Supplier and Supply and it is upon You that we rely entirely. We are living in a difficult world, in a society that is facing increasingly precarious economic difficulties. The money for which we work is becoming sawdust in our pockets and the prices of the simple basics of life are escalating out of control, and Lord we have no one but You upon whom to rely and we are trusting You for our provision today.
Lord, we believe Your Word is true and that You have promised to supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. Thank You for the amazing example of the Israelites in the wilderness, who received sufficient manna for the day as a promise from You, and Lord we believe and know that Your promises are no less true today than they were in those distant days gone by.
Help us to walk by faith and not to be swayed by the mountainous problems that surround us on every side. Help us to live by faith and not by sight, and trust You to provide sufficient provision for our daily need. Help us to read Your Word and reckon it to be true and not to doubt Your promises. Help us to trust You entirely in these increasingly precarious times and look to You with childlike trust, knowing that You are our Supplier and Supply. We ask this in Jesus' name,
Everlasting Father, thank you that you are the light of the world, guiding our steps on your path. Your word says that the earth is yours, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to you. We recognize everything we have belongs to you. We acknowledge that our very lives belong to you. We now offer back to you a portion of what you have given us. May God the Father prepare our journey, Jesus the Son guide our footsteps and the Holy Spirit watch over us, on every path that we follow. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Lord, my Rock and Redeemer, thank you that you are infinitely, consistently and perfectly wise. You have said that whatever we give is acceptable if we give it eagerly. You have said that we should give according to what we have. Help us to bring our offerings with an eager heart, not as a comparison with others but as an act of worship to you. May we find the comfort we desire in you and the strength we need in your name. May your presence be with us every hour of the day. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank You that we are living in the dispensation of grace and that we are not under the old law of the spirit of death but under the new law of the spirit of life. But Lord, I feel called to give a tithe to You because I love You, and I want to do this as a thank offering for the grace and love which You have shown towards me.
Accept I pray, this small token of my love and gratitude for loving me enough to give Your life for me and die a cruel death on the cross, that I may live - and for taking the punishment that I justly deserve and then clothing me in the righteousness of Christ, an honour which I do not deserve.
Thank You, Lord, for the amazing grace and steadfast love and mercy that You have poured out on me in such abundance, and help me never to become complacent or lukewarm towards You, but rather to live in perpetual awe and wonderment for the gift of life that You have given me as a free gift of grace, by simple faith in Christ Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
Compassionate Father, thank you that you are our strength and our song, you fill our hearts with joy. May we give our offerings to you with gladness and joy. Everything we have belongs to you and we rejoice to give some of your abundant gifts back to you. Bless the tithes and offerings we give today. Let the majesty of the Father be the light that guides us, the compassion of the Son be the love that inspires us and the presence of the Spirit be the power that empowers us. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank you that you are God, and there is no other, you are God, and there is none like you. You love us with an eternal love and we give you our offerings as an expression of our love for you. We pray our gifts would be used to extend your kingdom in our land. May you, the God of all grace, who has called us into eternal glory by Christ Jesus, make us holy, strong and filled with peace. To you be glory and honor for ever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Loving Father, I come to You today with grateful thanks for the gifts and promises that so readily stream in my direction from You. So often Lord, my foolish heart is filled with worry and anxiety and I find myself looking at the problem of my supply instead of looking to You as my generous Supplier. Please forgive this lack of trust in You, for I know that You have promised to supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory, for which I thank and praise You.
Lord, I want to be able to hand over each and every one of my worries to You, and to develop a generous and outgiving personality that keeps my eyes on Jesus, rather than continuing to be the worrier that I have become. I know that this does not honour Your name and I so desire to walk in the paths of righteousness and become a person with a generous heart that flows from Your own generosity, a grateful heart that is full of trust and thanks to You, Who have done so much for me.
Lord, I know that I cannot change my nature myself, but I do know that in the power of the Holy Spirit I can take my worries and anxieties captive and hand them over to You, turning them into purposeful praise, knowing that in all things You are the supplier of all I need. I ask this in Jesus' name,
Blessed Father, you are above all in gifts, and out of your giving you have taught me the way to a fuller identification of myself with you. Not only your gift of Jesus and your gift of the Spirit, but every day your gifts are given to me like manna in the wilderness. All I have belongs to you, and of my money I am only a trustee. Command its use as shall please you, and give me the experience of the giver's joy. Let me see clearly the sin of covetousness and deepen my hatred of its practice. In the name of your unspeakable Gift be praise and dominion forever.
