Prayer based on Matthew 25:28. Themes: Stewardship, Responsibility, Accountability
Dear Lord, please help me to use the talents and gifts that you have given me to the best of my ability. May I never bury them or waste them, but instead, may I invest them wisely and use them to bring glory to your name. If I ever fall short or fail to use my talents, please take them away from me and give them to someone who will use them for your kingdom. Thank you for entrusting me with these gifts, and may I always be a faithful steward of them. Amen.
Verse: Take away therefore the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to take away the talent from the person who did not use it and give it to the person who has ten talents.
