SO4J Scripture Spotlight on Prayer—

  • Ephesians 6:18-20 Paul to the Believers, “PRAYING ALWAYS (ALL TIMES & EVERY OCCASION) with all PRAYER & SUPPLICATION (Earnestly) in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with ALL PERSERVERANCE & SUPPLICATION for all the Saints (Believers), and PRAY for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth BOLDLY to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may SPEAK BOLDLY, as I ought to speak.”

Prayer Scriptures

  • Matthew 6:1-15 JESUS TEACHES HIS DISCIPLES ABOUT PRAYER & HOW TO PRAY: Jesus says, “Give your Gifts in Private, and your Father, who sees Everything, will REWARD YOU. “When you PRAY, DON’T be like the Hypocrites who love to PRAY PUBLICLY on street corners and in the synagogues where EVERYONE can see them. I tell you the Truth, that is ALL the REWARD they will ever get. But when you PRAY, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and to your Father in Private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will REWARD you. “When you PRAY, don’t babble on and on as people of other Religions do. They think their PRAYERS are answered merely by REPEATING THEIR WORDS AGAIN & AGAIN. DON’T be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask Him! PRAY LIKE THIS: “Our Father in Heaven, may your name be kept HOLY. May your Kingdom come Soon. May your Will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us today the food we need, and Forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who Sin against us. And DON’T let us YIELD TO TEMPTATION, but RESCUE US from the EVIL ONE.”

Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and PRAYED, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Then He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and said to Peter, “What? Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and PRAY, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again, a second time, He went away and PRAYED, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. So He left them, went away again, and PRAYED the third time, saying the same words. Then He came to His disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.”

And being in agony, He PRAYED MORE EARNESTLY . Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Money, like any topic, is an issue that needs to be addressed in the church.  Jesus talked more about money than anything else in the Bible.  If you are leading an offering prayer in your congregation, read through these seven different short prayers you can pray to God before you take up the offering.

The Cheerful Giver

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Father in Heaven,

We thank You today for Your blessings that you bestow upon us all.  Father, I pray for our congregation today.  Lord, may we all give with gladness and sincerity.  Father, no one ever gives a present to someone with reluctance and we should never give You what already belongs to You with reluctance either.  Bless these tithes and offerings this day.  We love You, Father!  Amen

Watch What I Will Do!

Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. (Malachi 3:10)

O Lord,

We thank You for Your steadfast love and mercy on us.  Father, we believe that every word in the Bible was breathed out by You (2 Tim 3:16), and we believe Your promise that You will bless us when we are obedient to Your Word.  And so, without hesitation, we gladly give to You what is Yours.  Bless these tithes and offerings, Father.  We love You, Lord!  Amen

You Reap What You Sow

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. (Proverbs 11:24)

Heavenly Father,

We thank You for bringing us all to Your house safely today and we are so blessed by Your presence here today.  Thank You for Your love and mercy on us, Father.  Father, we believe in the Book of Proverbs and I pray that everyone here will look into their hearts and act in obedience to Your Word.  May we give not to become richer, though, may we give because we simply love You!  Accept these tithes and offerings today.  We love You, Lord!  Amen


Honor the Lord with your wealth. (Proverbs 3:9a)


We praise Your Almighty Name!  You have blessed our nation with immense wealth and opportunity.  Lord, You have commanded us to honor You with our wealth, and I pray that You will be honored greatly this day as we give to You what is already Yours.  Bless these cheerful givers and bless the tithes and offerings that they give.  We love You!  Amen

His Eyes See Your Intentions

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21)

O Lord,

There are some of us here today that didn’t want to come here.  There are some of us today that will give to the offering with bitter hearts.  Father, I pray You will soften the hearts of those who are worried about giving You their money instead of spending it on themselves.  Father, I pray that You will bless all who give today and show them Your love in a mighty way because of their obedience.  Bless these tithes and offerings, Father.  We love You!  Amen

The Tithe Belongs To The Lord

Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord. (Leviticus 27:30)


We come to Your throne with humble hearts as we are so thankful for the blessings You give us daily.  Lord, We believe in the Book of Leviticus.  Father, I pray that as we give You our offerings and tithes this morning that we all will think about the fact that the tithe is Yours.  It belongs to You.  May we never withhold what is Yours.  Please accept these offerings and tithes with gladness, Lord.  We Love You!  Amen

Love Is Essential

If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:3)

Dear Lord,

We thank You for another chance for us to meet together in Your house to worship You.  Father, we believe in the Book of 1 Corinthians and I pray that all offerings given today are out of love.  We experience Your blessings every day and Your blessings are always given to us freely and with ultimate love.  Father, You loved us all of the way to the cross!  May we love You enough to give You what is already Yours.  Bless these tithes and offerings today.  We love you!  Amen


Giving back to God is commanded, and is something that should be done with joy and cheerfulness.  As you approach your next church service, consider tithing if you don’t already.  You will be amazed at how God makes everything work out.  May God continue to bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!
