Praying from Matthew 16:26. Themes: Salvation, Materialism, Sacrifice.
Dear God, please help me to remember that the pursuit of worldly possessions and success is not worth sacrificing my life and soul. Help me to prioritize my values and seek fulfillment in things that truly matter. Give me the strength to resist temptation and the wisdom to make choices that align with your will. Thank you for the gift of life, and may I use it to glorify you and serve others. Amen.
Verse: For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?
This is a Command. The verse is commanding the reader to consider the value of their life in comparison to worldly possessions. It is urging the reader to prioritize their life over material gain.
