Praying with Paul: 'Bountiful Sowing'

Monday, June 10, 2024

2 Corinthians 9:1-8

Dear Father, righteous and gracious God,

Create in me a holy readiness to give of that which you have given me, never as an exaction but as a willing gift.

Help me to sow bountifully so that I shall reap bountifully. Let me make up my mind about what to give.

Then let my giving be cheerful, not with reluctance or under compulsion.

And why shouldn't I give, since you give to me without reservation. You are able to provide me with every blessing in abundance, and you will provide so that I will always have enough for myself and some to give away.

In the name of Jesus Christ, the truly generous Savior of mankind, I raise these petitions to you. Amen.
