Prayer based on Matthew 25:27. Themes: Stewardship, Accountability, Faithfulness.
Dear Lord, I pray that I may be a faithful steward of the resources you have entrusted to me. Help me to wisely invest and use my money for your glory and the benefit of others. May I not be afraid to take risks and step out in faith, but also be responsible and diligent in managing what you have given me. And when you return, may I be able to present to you the fruits of my labor, knowing that I have used your gifts to the best of my ability. Amen.
Verse: You ought therefore to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back my own with interest.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to deposit the money with the bankers and promises that the owner will receive back his own with interest upon his return.
