United By Prayer Wall
PRAYING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY
Contentment is not to be found in financial security nor through the acquisition of things we would like to own. It is not discovered in positions of power nor can it be secured through seats of learning. Contentment has more to do with who a man or woman is than what a man or woman has.
While money can be an excellent servant of mankind and is able to do much good, the writer to the Hebrews identifies the love of money as a key hindrance to inner contentment. In his letter to Timothy, Paul also warns that the love of money is a root of all sorts of evils and that some believers have so hankered after money as to be led astray from the faith. When the love of money rears its ugly head, it spawns a covetous heart and gives birth to a soul that is restless and discontented.
God, Has Given Us Many Precious Blessings and has promised never to leave us nor forsake us, no matter how fiercely the bitter winds of trial batter our lives and irrespective of other people who may have betrayed or hurt us. May we develop a character that is free from the love of money and strive to be content in all things, knowing that He Himself has promised to be with us in all the changing scenes of our lives.
Ponder on these comforting words of the Lord when we are tempted to envy the life of another or allow seeds of discontent to be sown in our hearts. Let us ponder on these words: 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.”
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, we confess that there are times when we are tempted to be dissatisfied with our lives and envious of others, leaving us feeling discontented. Forgive us, Lord. May we be reminded today of that most precious blessing that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Remind us today, Lord, that as your children, we are the most blessed people on earth. Help us to keep our priorities in order, not looking to things of the earth for contentment but to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. In Jesus' name we Pray, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
