Praying with Paul: 'Giving Produces Thanksgiving'

Sunday, June 13, 2021

2 Corinthians 9:11-15

Dear Father, righteous and gracious God,

I believe that you will enrich me in every way for great generosity, and I pray that my giving will produce thanksgiving to you! Let my giving not only serve mankind but also glorify your name.

Let me glorify you by being obedient in every way to the Good News about Jesus. Let my contributions be an expression of my love for him.

Let those who receive what I give pray for me and long to know me, because of your superlative and surpassing grace given to me. Thank you, my loving God, for your inexpressible gift!

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