This is the audio from the March 16, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
1 Chronicles 29:14 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus is about God’s desire that we live with generosity toward God and toward one another. When we recognize God’s ownership of everything and choose to live as good stewards, generosity should flow naturally. As Christians, we ought to be generous because it is a part of God’s nature that He has put within us. Our generosity to others is a reflection of the generosity we receive from God — at least it ought to be.
“Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.”
2 Corinthians 8:2 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you see His generosity in all areas of your life. Pray that you would not allow your circumstances to rob you of the joy of generosity. Pray that you would have both a spirit and practice of generosity in all circumstances. Pray that your lifestyle of generosity would produce joy in others.
