Contentment Prayer

God our Father in Heaven, we stand before You in prayer, humble before Your great presence. We pray for those pursuing contentment in their lives. 

Lord Jesus, You said that whenever two or three are gathered in Your Name, there You will be. We humbly ask for Your presence beside us.

We know that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective, yet we claim no righteousness of our own other than the righteousness of our Lord Jesus.

We are grateful, Lord, that You have led them to desire contentment in their lives. Thank You that You have taken away the love of money in their hearts and replaced it with love for Your kingdom. 

Help them to guard their hearts, and don’t let them be deceived by the lies of the enemy. For now that they desire contentment in the world, there may be more temptations that will lure them into desiring more of this world.

As iron sharpens iron, surround them with like-minded people – people who pursue the heavenly realm. Make them influence and encourage each other to help the poor and fight the good fight.

Still bless them with an abundance that fills all their earthly needs. May they never have to be slaves to money and instead be the masters of money. Allow them to wisely control their earthly wealth and not be controlled by it. 

Make them a channel of Your blessings and encourage them to serve the poor and their local church. Help them focus their desires to advance the kingdom and make them fishers of men.

Help them discern when they are tempted to be greedy or self-centered. Renew their minds every day, and don’t let them conform to the patterns of this world. Instead, let them be leaders and good influencers to others. May their actions always lead others to praise and glorify Your Name.

May You always smile on them and look at them with favor. In Jesus’ name, we pray. And God’s people said, “Amen!”.

Do you know anyone who wants to change their life and start living for the Lord? Pray for them with these prayers for new beginnings and a fresh start.
