Open the Heavens: Week Three Prayer Guides

CORE VALUE TARGET: BIBLICAL STEWARDSHIP
GLOBAL FAMILY TARGETS: AFRICA, ASIA, EUROPE/CIS/MIDDLE EAST

Stewardship is a journey. Generosity was the first genuine response to the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit on the infant church of the book of Acts. To experience the work of the Holy Spirit will surely bring us to a level of generosity we have not seen in recent times.

Biblical stewardship is necessary for a spiritually healthy individual, church, and ministry; yet it is the most feared discipleship subject. This is a great time to personally pray, joined with thousands who are also praying, through any stewardship issues and challenges we face as Christians, parents, and ministers.

Week Three Prayer Directives
Unite your prayers with us by praying for a stewardship renewal in the following ways:

  • Pray that grace be the basis of all stewardship and a matter of the heart. (1 Peter 4:10)
  • Pray that tithing and giving leads to whole-life stewardship including time, talent, health, and family. (Luke 20:25, 21:4, Malachi 3:12)
  • Pray that children and youth will learn biblical stewardship from their parents and leaders. (Matthew 7:24, Colossians 1:27-28, 2:7, 1 Peter 5:2,10)
  • Pray that people with the spiritual gift of giving will acknowledge, understand, and practice their gift. (Romans 12:6–8)
  • Pray that the joy of giving becomes a reality, causing giving to go beyond being needs based. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
  • Pray that a scriptural understanding of debt will break the debt bondage on families. (Proverbs 21:20, 17:18, Romans 13:8)
  • Pray that biblical stewardship will break the addiction of materialism which leads to idolatry. (Colossians 3:5)
  • Pray that pastors and members will receive revelation that we tithe to Jesus, not our pastor. (Hebrews 7:8–10)
  • Pray that the satanic conspiracy of silence that Pastors experience regarding preaching on tithing will be broken. (Romans 2:21, Colossians 3:23)
  • Pray that there is “meat in mine house” and ministries experience generous funding. (Malachi 3:10, 2 Corinthians 9:6–8)
  • Pray with us about this month’s Assembly Expense Offering, that our generous giving will supply more than is needed for this year’s biennial gathering.
