40 Days of Prayer - Day 20


Stewardship

Genesis 1:27-28
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  Then God blessed them and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Founding Father Quote:
When asked, “Does the Bible tell about peanuts?”
George Washington Carver replied, “No Sir, but it tells about the God who made the peanut.  I asked Him to show me what to do with the peanut and He did.”
 
Prayer:
Jesus, You have indeed created all things and entrusted us with their care.  As we have failed in our mission to preserve that which is right and good, others who do not know You have risen to power, perpetuating rules and regulations in the name of environmentalism, economics and social justice.  These rules have stripped us of our freedoms.  Forgive us for not being the good stewards You created us to be.  Forgive us for an ungrateful spirit, often taking for granted the blessings You have so graciously bestowed upon us.  We ask that You guide and direct us in Your pathways, as we begin to diligently seek Your will for our lives.  May we begin to show You in a very real way, our deep appreciation for all You have given to us.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
