Prayer based on Luke 18:24. Themes: Wealth, Salvation, Difficulty

Dear Lord Jesus,

As I reflect on your words, I am reminded of the challenges that come with wealth and material possessions. I pray that you would help me to keep my focus on you and your kingdom, rather than on the things of this world.

Please give me the strength and wisdom to use my resources in a way that honors you and blesses others. Help me to be generous and compassionate, and to seek first your kingdom and your righteousness.

Thank you for your love and grace, and for the reminder that true riches are found in you alone. May I always be mindful of your teachings and seek to follow you with all my heart.

In your holy name I pray,
