Day 20 (40 Days of Prayer)

Acts 20:35, I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

God never has and never will need our wealth. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
He is Spirit and needs none of the things we need. Giving to the Lord has never been
about His needs, but ours. We need to honor the Lord with our wealth. Giving back to
God is about restoring our understanding of God as our provider. It places us firmly
under His care and lordship.

When the church in a nation tithes to God and recognizes His provision, that nation
is blessed. God is honored, and we find ourselves in a place where God can begin to trust
us with more because we are correctly using what He already has given us. Could much
of the our nation’s economic turbulence be caused by the failure of God’s people to honor
Him with their wealth?

The average Christian gives 2.7 percent to his or her church!
What might happen in our nation as we offer ourselves and our wealth back to the Lord?

»Ask the Lord if you are properly honoring Him with your wealth.
»Pray for a spirit of generosity to well up within the church in America.
»Pray for God to be honored as we give abundantly and with right attitudes to Him.

Father, I thank You that You are the giver of every good and perfect gift. All that we have
comes from Your hand. I am grateful to you. Help me, Lord, to honor You with my wealth,
and to give back with a joyful spirit. Please pour out a spirit of revival and generosity within the lives of
Your people, so that You might be honored and our nation might be blessed.
