Featured Prayer: Ministry of Christian Giving

"So we urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others" (2 Corinthians 8:6-8).

Dear Father, thank you for the plans you have for me. Even though I don't deserve anything but eternal punishment, you have given me the gift of eternal paradise with you--through the perfect life and innocent death of your son. Although you really don't need me to do anything, you do ask me to share your Good News with others. To share that Good News you have given me time, talent, and treasures. Help me to use these gifts to help further your kingdom now and for eternity. Amen.
