Abba…in the wilderness You asked Your people
to contribute to the building of Your sanctuary.
They gave so much, in fact,
that some had to be turned away!
May we give even more freely to the things
near and dear to Your heart today.
You have a new house now…the body of Yeshua.
May we generously give
to build up Yeshua’s body so that
we may all be equipped
to do the work of Your kingdom.
May we give to You:
of our money,
of our time,
of our abilities,
of everything we have.
May we consider that all we have
comes from You
and really belongs to You.
May we use all with which You have blessed us
for Your purposes as good stewards.
Abba, You gave explicit instructions to Your people
on how to build Your sanctuary.
You have also given us instructions
on how to build up Yeshua’s body.
May we follow those instructions closely,
always keeping in mind
Who it is that love and serve.
Abba, thank You for loving us
and for forgiving us for all the wrong things we do.
So many times we miss the mark,
yet You love us anyway
and keep cheering us on.
May we love You back with:
all of our hearts,
all of our minds,
all of our souls,
all of our strengths.
May we love our neighbors
May we love one another
as Yeshua commanded us to do.
Abba, we praise You and ask You to
all who are reading this prayer.
Your healing Shalom,
Please bring as needed:
Your forgiveness of others.
Please bring Your healing for:
Help us all, Abba:
to walk faithfully in Your ways,
to proclaim Your truth,
to lift up one another,
to feed the hungry,
to clothe the naked,
to give water to the thirsty,
to visit the sick,
to visit those in prison,
to open our homes to the homeless,
to introduce You to all who need it,
to minister Your love to all who need it,
to encourage one another,
to cheer one another on.
Praise You, Abba.
Praise You, Yeshua.
Praise You, Ruach/Spirit.
We bless You and Your Holy Name!
