Praying with Paul: 'Hearts of Love and Action'

Tuesday, June 7, 2022

2 Corinthians 8:8-9

Dear Father,

Give us hearts of love, that refuse to say, "Go, be warmed and filled," but instead give what is needful to those full of need.

Help us prove that our love is genuine, remembering that the Lord Jesus himself was very rich in heaven with you but for our sakes he became poor that by his poverty we might become rich.

Thank you, Jesus, for this. Thank you, Father, for giving Jesus to us to show us the blessedness of giving to others.

In the name of Jesus I humbly ask for your help in giving us a generous spirit. Amen.
