HUMOR: SHOPPING ADDICT PRAYER

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot afford and not try to buy them anyway; [the] courage to change my mind about something I don’t really like and just take it back or leave it in the store to begin with; and [the] wisdom to know the difference between items that are worth the expense and items that should only ever be bought out of season, on super sale or at Target.

http://www.cofe.anglican.org/worship/prayers/#financial

A PRAYER SEEKING GUIDANCE

Lord God, your will is to bring hope and a future to all your people.

Trusting in your steadfast love,

we ask your guidance as we work out a household budget.

Help us to learn to let no debt remain outstanding,

except the debt to love one another,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

VERSES FROM PSALM 139

O Lord, you have searched me out and known me;

you know my sitting down and my rising up;

you discern my thoughts from afar.

You mark out my journeys and my resting place

and are acquainted with all my ways.

Where can I go then from your spirit?

Or where can I flee from your presence?

If I take the wings of the morning

and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

Even there your hand shall lead me,

your right hand hold me fast.

A PRAYER FOR WISE FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP

Lord Jesus Christ,

by taking human flesh you sanctified material things

to be a means of your grace;

grant us wisdom in our attitude to money,

and a generous heart in the use of the resources entrusted to us,

that by faithful stewardship we may glorify you.  Amen.
