Thursday’s prayer: The love of money will...


Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. ‭‭James‬ ‭5:2-3‬ ‭NIV

Lord God, James strikes at my wallet, my bank account and my possessions.  He reminds me that all of my wealth and all of my possessions are even more temporary than I am.  They are here one day and worn out the next. He strikes at my heart too.  He shows me that so often in my pursuit of wealth I have hurt other people.  I have thought only of myself instead of the people around me, the people I’ve hurt in my gathering of riches.  Lord God, forgive me.  Forgive me and do not bring on me the judgment I deserve.  Forgive me and teach me to care more about people than about possessions.  Teach me to be more concerned for the needs of other people and less for me.  Lord God, you promise to hear my cries for help and to give me what I need.  You are concerned for me.  Help me be concerned about them.  Amen.

Refuel Faith: Psalm 108-109
