This is the audio from the March 13, 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. As you pray this week, ask God to help you see His generosity in all areas of your life. Pray that the ways you share with others would reflect all the ways God has given to you. Pray that your generosity would always flow from pure and right motives which glorify God. Pray that you would be generous with your time, your abilities, your resources, and your love. Pray that you would experience, and share, the true generosity that is found in Christ. Pray that the people around you would experience the generosity of God through you.
“Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.”
Deuteronomy 15:10 (NIV)
Pray that you would have a right attitude in sharing and giving. Pray that any traces of a “grudging heart” would be removed from you. Pray that your attitude in giving would result in God’s blessings upon all you do.
