Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.
Text: Luke 12:31, 34
“But seek his kingdom, and these things will be provided for you… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, you are the Great Provider. Sometimes I don’t think so, because you say no to my wants though you care for my needs. Help me to remember true priority. The things that matter most are not the things of this world–the paychecks, retirement accounts, cars, and toys. While you might give such things at times to enjoy with wisdom, the things of your Kingdom are the treasures worth seeking. Help my heart grasp each day the greater worth of your goodness, let my heart be focused on the gifts above. Amen.
