Day 27

A Prayer For Generous Giving

"Give and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be put into your bosom.""So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver."

Luke 6:38a and 2 Corinthians 9:7

Giver of Every Good Gift,

You have generously given to us every spiritual blessing through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Teach us to be like You in our giving — generous, expressive, cheerful and free from hesitation. Lord Jesus, help us find renewed joy and purpose in intentional, faithful giving. May we mimic You in offering all that we are and all that we have for Your kingdom glory and praise. Holy Spirit, lead us to give authentically from our hearts of our time, talents and treasures. Through our giving, may we experience great cheer and excitement knowing Your kingdom is being extended throughout our community and our world. We pray in the name of Jesus, the ultimate gift given to us from heaven. Amen.
