Father, bless your people with material prosperity when their goal is like Gaius’s, to support the progress of the Good News of Christ.
Thank you for generous congregations and individual saints who give for the gospel rather than squirreling away their monies for savings and investments or spending lavishly upon themselves.
Help us to make proper use of our funds in our personal accounts and in our spending of funds for the use of reaching others to save them for eternal life.
Keep us from the idolatry of greed, from the love of money, from the devotion to work and earning salaries that prevent us from full devotion to your Son as Lord and Savior.
Put in our hearts your love and kindness that will overflow in good works and giving to supply needs.
