The Giving Prayer


Lord, you are GOOD and your loving kindness endures forever
Thank you Lord that you bless us with every spiritual blessing in Christ
Thank you that you cause showers of blessing to come down
Blessing, honour and riches belong to you, and flow from your throne
We believe that you will supply all our need,
according to your riches in glory

We present ourselves today as a living sacrifice
Not because there is any lack in you, but because we need you
In our lack we choose to abound in riches of generosity towards you
We choose to sow generously and we trust you for a generous harvest
So that we will always have ALL sufficiency in ALL things,
an ABUNDANCE for all good works

Where we have need, we ask you to supply
Where we are empty we ask you to fill us
Where you have blessed us, we choose to bless others
For the sake of your Kingdom


Pick up again your inheritance and giftings

Speaking from Ephesians 3 & 4, Chris encourages us to pick up again the inheritances we have been given by God, both individually and corporately, and to reach out again to grow in our gifting and ministries.
