Prayer for 1 John 3:17

“If anyone has this world's goods and sees his brother in need but shuts off his compassion from him-how can God's love reside in him?”

Praying through 1 John 3:17

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth and the many things I can learn from questioning my own actions, attitudes, moods, and motives. Thank You for this passage in first John that has caused me to reflect on the way that I treat my brothers and sisters in Christ. Help me to be wise and prudent in the way I use my resources and generous toward others when I see a need. May I always show the love of God to those in need, to Your glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
