My Vision of Serving-Lent 31, 2020

Prayer Focus: What serving is all about

Lord Jesus, thank You for setting before us an example–the best example, the purest example, the ultimate example–of what serving really means. To lay down our lives for our fellow man. To love one another unconditionally. To do what is necessary and helpful for others when they cannot do it for themselves. To carry one another’s burdens. To pray without ceasing, for the prayers of righteous people accomplish more than we could ask or imagine. Help me to understand the incalculable blessing of seeing acts of service as the intangible of love displayed visibly by human hands. Help me to serve willingly, not begrudgingly, and to honor others’ service above my own. May I be every bit as gracious as a receiver of kindness and hospitality as a regular giver of it. I pray that just as You supply seed to sowers and bread for food , You will also supply and increase our store of seed to enlarge the Kingdom harvest of Your righteousness. May we be generous on every occasion, so that our generosity will result in thanksgiving to You. When we love unconditionally and serve others, we are not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people, but You receive glory as overflowing expressions of thanks. May our service display our confession of the gospel of Christ so many hearts will soar in the surpassing grace God. We give thanks to You, O Lord, for Your indescribable gift of Jesus Christ! (Adapted from 2 Corinthians 9:10-15)
