Please pray aloud:

Heavenly Father, your Son taught that you know our needs, just as you know the needs of the birds, and yet you love us infinitely more than the birds! So I come to you now asking you to provide for our church, Lord.

Our ministry has more needs than we have finances–salary needs, building needs, equipment needs, food needs, and outreach needs. We would have none of what we do have without your generous hand, O God. And yet, like you send the rain to return another day, we come to you now asking for you to shower your financial blessings on us again and to provide for us where we lack.

Begin with our members, God. Provide for your church through your church, O Lord. Come by your Holy Spirit and inspire each one to give in proportion to what they have received. Let none be exempt! Stir in each heart with a recognition of how much you have given, from the gift of your Son to the gift of daily bread. Just as your Holy Spirit moved the people in Jerusalem to sell their possessions to meet the needs of the early church, would you move us all to the same extraordinary generosity, God? If some have never given a tenth of their income that you ask for in your Word, give them courage to do so. For those who have been faithful to give a tenth of their increase, give them the courage to give more!

Provide for your church through your church, O Lord.
—Pray for Your Church

As we give our treasure to you, may our hearts follow to meet you there, Lord. Remove any sense of greed or fear or desire to build our own kingdom with our money and gives us a desire to build your Kingdom, instead. Then, Lord of the Harvest, as each person gives, do as you promised and pour out so much blessing upon them that they do not have enough room to store it all.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— 14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
Deuteronomy 11:13-15
