Prayers for the Offering

Prayer To Be Used By The Lord

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the pastors and ministries that You have provided to teach me Your Word and to be a support and encouragement in my Christian life.

Help me to be willing and prepared to be used by You to minister to others, to encourage the body of Christ and to edify those that are called my Your name.

Thank You that You have given to each one gifts, abilities, talents and treasures according to Your grace and I pray that You would use all that I am and all that I have to be an offering, a living sacrifice to be poured out in the service of others and to the glory of Your name.


Prayer For Discrimination In My Giving

Dear Lord Jesus, I pray that whether I have a little or a lot You, would take what I have and use it to Your glory. When times are hard, help me not to be tight-fisted and when I have plenty, give me wisdom in sharing all that you have given to me.

Help me to be discriminating in my offerings and develop in me the joy and cheerfulness in giving that is so pleasing to Your heart.

I pray that You would direct me in any offerings and gifts I may make and give me the wisdom to recognise a real need from one that is feigned. Loving Father, there are so many ministries today that are actively asking for money and finances. Direct me I pray, to give wisely and give me discernment to know who to support and who to avoid. In Jesus' name I pray,


For Wisdom In The Gifts Entrusted To Me

Loving Lord, instil in me a grateful and generous heart I pray, and may I grow in grace and mature in the faith so that I may be entrusted by You to walk in Your ways and to give generously and cheerfully of all the time, treasures and talents that You have graciously bestowed on me.

Lord, I know that at times I have not offered of myself sacrificially, but Father, I desire to be a grateful and generous child of Yours, who brings glory to Your name in all I say and do and am.

Give me wisdom to use what You have entrusted to me in a way that is pleasing to You and helpful to others. Help me always to acknowledge You as my provider and keep me from selfishly hoarding the gifts You have entrusted to me, but rather to give with a cheerful and generous heart to all my brothers and sisters in need. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Prayer For A Generous Heart And A Wise Spirit

Heavenly Father, open my eyes to see all the generous provision that You have given to me throughout my life. Thank You for the material and financial blessings that You have given me and help me to continue to trust You for my provision, even when times are hard.

Help me to be wise with all that You have given me and teach me from Your Word how best the use the gifts, talents and finances that You have entrusted to me, to Your honour.

Keep me Lord, from both poverty and from excessive riches, but may I develop a generous spirit and a wise heart to share what I do have wisely with those in need, as You would lead and guide. In Jesus' name I pray,


Prayer For Increasing Generosity

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for all Your loving kindness and grace towards me, for Your day by day provision for all my needs and necessities and for the many blessings that You shower on me so abundantly each day.

Lord, I pray that You would give me a loving spirit and a giving heart towards others. Help me to become increasingly grateful for all I have received and help me to be more and more generous towards others with all that I have. Lord, I know that all I have is Yours, keep me from selfishness.

Lord, I know that I can never begin to out-give You for all that You have provided me through time and into eternity, but help me Lord I pray, to develop such generosity of heart that it is pleasing to Your heart and honouring to Your name. In Jesus' name I pray,
