Prayer of Provision

I thank you, God. You are the God of provision; all that I have comes from You; all that I have belongs to You. You provide for me in Your faithfulness—You watch over me with faithful eyes, never missing a thing; You watch over me with faithful hands, never forgetting a detail; You watch over me with faithful words, never ignoring a promise; You watch over me with faithful love, never allowing anything to separate me from You.

Today, I ask You to bless all the work that I do as unto You and prosper the work of my hands. I ask for health of body, clarity of thought, and steadiness of will. I ask for guidance in my decisions and favor in my relationships.

I thank You for being the provider of every physical need, practical need, personal need, and most of all, every spiritual need I have. May Your strength be my strength, may Your joy be my joy, may Your purpose be my purpose.

God of all, provide for all—all grace, all mercy, all peace.

God of all, be my path through the waters, my shade from the sun, my shelter from the storm, my refreshment from the toil, and my deliverer from the pestilence.

I trust in Your provision for all that is needed in body, soul, and spirit to serve you with all my heart this day. Be the fruit of my labor and my exceeding great reward.

Scriptures: Philippians 4:19, Deuteronomy 28:12, Genesis 39:3, Psalm 35:273 John 1:2, Hebrews 13:5-6, 2 Corinthians 9:10, Psalm 89:33

 

He delights to glorify the common lot and common toil. It is His purpose to hallow the commonplace, the vast world of the ordinary in which we earn our daily bread. In “The Angelus,” in which Millet pictures two peasants, man and woman, standing with bowed heads as the bells of evening send across the fields the call to prayer, the painter has thrown a softening light not only upon the humble worshippers, but also upon the spade and wheelbarrow, the common implements of their toil. And that is right; the Light of Life will illumine the means by which we earn our bread and thereby transform them into a means of grace. When the Spirit broods over our business it becomes our Father’s business. -J.H. Jowett

    Dear Roy,

    I love your Prayer of Provision! It is so very true. God provides us everything we need to live each and every day. Everything we have; everything we need comes from Him. Everything on Earth is His, we are mere stewards. I know I do not praise and thank Him as often as I should. This prayer will be a great help for me to do just that. Thank you so much, Roy! God bless.

    Dear brother in Christ, Roy:
    I thank God for having the blessing of your devotionals on my e-mail.They have been of great encouragement for my life and for the life of some friends with whom I shared them. I thank God also for your life, your ministry and for the blessing you are for the persons you don´t even know.I pray God that you may continue with a mistry that is such a blessing for all of us, and that God may bless your life abundantly as you please Him, by teaching about Him to his people.
