At a staff meeting earlier in the year some of our staff discussed the desire to have a monthly prayer focus for every month of the year. We want to bring our congregation together in prayer and to experience the power of prayer in our community.

The prayer focus for the month of November is Generosity.

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.  A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” – Proverbs 11:24-25

Prayer: Dear Lord, you have given us so much in our lives. Help us to share the blessing of generosity. We want to bless others as you blessed us. We thank you, God, for providing daily opportunities to be generous. Lead us to be generous with our time, talents, and wealth. Move us to give as we have received – abundantly, generously, and joyfully. Amen.

If this prayer focus captures your heart and you would like to pray about it, or if you would like to come pray about anything else going on in your life, please be reminded that our Rose Chapel is open for prayer Thursdays 11:00am-1:00pm. Julia Griffith will be there during that time frame in case you would like a partner in prayer.
