21 Day Fasting and Prayer Focus – Day 7
 
Word: Money
 
Prayer:
Gracious God may our lives be lived in a way where in no, shape, or form would we be entrapped by the love of money. We know that you have given us the ability to work for and increase in blessings. But we also know Lord that you have bless us to be a blessing. Forgive us if we ever think that we are the owners of our financial blessings. Help us to understand that we instead are stewards of every blessing you gift us with. May we be faithful to you with our giving and use any financial provision to proportionately honor you and be a blessing to our families, our church, our communities and the world. In Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
 
Scripture Verses:
 
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
 
Dishonest money dwindles away,
but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
 
Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
 
The blessing of the Lord brings wealth,
without painful toil for it.
 
Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops.
 
Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
 
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
 
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
 
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
 
Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.
