Prayer For Giving To Others

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,


Lord, I thank You for what You have given me, so many blessings that I cannot begin to count them, they are without number. Lord, I pray that You would develop in me a giving heart that glorifies You, a cheerful heart that desires to give back to You a small measure of the over-abundance that You have poured into my lap.

Father, there are times when I worry about giving and times when I hold back from giving because I have a nagging in my mind that if I give away too much I may render myself without sufficient. Lord, in my heart, I know that this attitude that I have developed is not pure, nor is it founded on true biblical principles, and so I come to You now to ask You to change my heart in respect to giving, so that it more truly reflects a heart that pleases You.

I ask that You would give me wisdom to know what to give, when to give and whom to give to. Change my attitude towards giving I pray, knowing that all things come from You and it is from the over-abundance of the bountiful supply that You have graciously poured into my lap, that I am giving back to You. Give me I pray, a giving heart, a generous heart, a grateful heart. Develop in me a heart that is filled with thanks and praise to You, for all that You have done for me. Hear my prayer, Lord. I ask this in Jesus' name,


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.


Almighty God, thank you for the reminder of Jesus' walk to the cross. I can imagine that everyone standing around watching Jesus walk to the cross thought he had failed, it seemed that he couldn't even rescue himself from this death, he was indeed walking into the greatest victory and reward. My salvation! And, the salvation of all who will believe and receive the gift that he has so lovingly bestowed upon us eternal life. Thank you that he never wavered but stayed focus and finished the race as so many great patriarchs that followed him did as well. God help me, by your grace, to also finish well and to not give up hope. I would have given up if I did not believe that I would have seen your goodness in the land of the living. Even so, I know that an even greater reward awaits me in heaven. Lord bring salvation to my family and friends and continue to guide me to be used for your glory. I give up my own pride and I ask that you uproot jealousy, covetousness and envy. Cause me to be reminded always that I am here to build your kingdom and not my own. I am here to serve and to help those that you have put into my path. Expand my heart so that I will give more than I receive, in Jesus name, Amen.

God, we do not want to live selfishly and ignore the needs of others. Lord, teach us to share without expecting something in return. We open our hearts to your compassion so we can help other people who need our help the most. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Almighty Father,

I pray for forgiveness and that You give me the strength to forgive others; I pray also that You forgive them for their stubborness.

I humbly ask You for Strength to deal with the current situation I face, my future being so unsure makes my head and my heart ache and sometimes pride creeps in where Love should be. I pray that You soften the heart of others and make them realise how their actions affect our lives and that the people they listen to do not have their interest at heart. I pray that they return to the family and conquer their ignorance and pride.

I pray for a clear and vivid sign as to which direction I should take and to the decisions I make. I trust in You completely Almighty God and know that You will never steer me wrong.

Please give me the wisdom to appreciate Your signs and the understanding of the reasons behind the outcome. I will do what You deem best for me (and my children) and will continuously praise and thank You.

My works and deeds I shall do with Your Blessings and Grace and pray that you can see that my heart is sincere and my intentions are good.
