Prayers for others

by Lynn (USA)

Oh, Father,

You have been so good to me. You have given me chance after chance, yet I am but a sinner. You have provided for me and you have gifted me with 3+2 beautiful children who are healthy and smart and beautiful. I’m so grateful for what you have given me to treasure.

But I have accumulated far too much debt. I can’t imagine getting out of this hole that I have dug without your intervention. Please help me, Lord, so that I am able to dig myself out and use the leftover to glorify you and help others. And give me the wisdom to be discerning of those needs. Please help me to ensure that it’s in your name and not my own. That it’s done for your glory and not my own.

I love you and ask for your forgiveness for my many sins. I believe my heart is good and you know that I want to help others. Please make me better at it by giving me the financial means to glorify you.
