Praying with Paul: 'Disciplined Giving'

Friday, May 14, 2021

1 Corinthians 16:1-12

Dear Father,

Give me the discipline to set something aside from my earnings every week to subsidize your work around the world.

May I then administer this money wisely and honorably. Open wide the doors for effective work for your kingdom.

May I willingly give to help your worthy servants. Let me give hospitality and support to those who travel.

May your love and the grace of the Lord Jesus be with them and us for ever and ever. Amen.
