When I think of the offering plate I think of funds or resources to bring more people out of the darkness of selfishness and this world's short-term ways and into the endless kingdom of light with Jesus, free from sin and evil and rebellion. So I might think to add a prayer to mix together with the funds to reach a certain person, family or tribe in a certain country. Maybe these might be some I would like to put in. Dear Lord, please help a missionary in Tibet to not despair, bring them fresh encouragement and strategy this week so that they are fruitful and patient for your holy timing. Please prepare the hearts of the Tibetans they minister to- remove the rocks and till up their hearts for the seeds to be planted this week and arrange for the fertilizer and watering of your Holy Spirit with the circumstances of their lives bringing them to maturity. Amen. Dear Lord, I trust you fully with the salvation plan and timing for my cousins and uncle and aunt in Wyoming who have strayed far from your will these days. Help me be more faithful to pray for them in confidence in your unlimited power and ability to overcome the obstacles in their hearts and history, because you are greater than this world and Job says that no human can overcome the pride of the human heart but you are surely able to rescue humans from this great enemy- pride. I praise you in advance for your marvelous power and ways - you are worthy of all praise and I gladly give it to you. In Jesus victorious name, amen.
Let this blog article be an avenue for you to give an offering of prayer into God's spiritual offering basket today. Blessings to you.
