A Prayer for Abundance
I think of the words of Jesus, that he came to give life that satisfies. I confess that I have been trying to find things of this world to satisfy me and they aren’t working. Lord, I believe that you alone can do that, that you have already done that. Lord, I thank you for freeing me, freeing me from the chains that bound me, from trying to keep up with this world, from the law of sin and death. Lord, because you have freed me, I can experience abundant life.
Because you have set me free, Lord, I can have a new perspective. I am thankful for your gift of salvation, for eternal life. I am grateful for the inheritance you have given me. I am thankful that I can communicate with you and can experience the beauty of your presence. Lord, I thank you for sending the Holy Spirit, who guides me and reveals wisdom.
Thank you for this “deposit guaranteeing our inheritance,” who reminds me that we are sons and daughters of God. (Eph 1:14) I thank you that he leads me to minister to others, to help free them from their chains and offer them this same abundant life. God, help me to remember these promises when the world looks more appealing or I get distracted by things going on around me.
Help me not to envy those who seem to have it all. Lord, I have it all, because of you. I thank you for the eternal inheritance you have given me and that one day, I can enjoy the beauty of your Kingdom and your presence forever.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
