Prayer For Generosity – Make Me Generous Oh Lord
Generosity they say is a thing of the mind. But have you noticed that the spirit may be willing but the flesh is drawing you back? A prayer for generosity will definitely help. You have to pray for the grace to be generous, to give cheerfully because givers never lack. Say the prayer for generosity below:
Teach me to be generous as You have been generous with me. Teach me that all I am and have are gifts from You. And gifts, Lord, are meant to be shared.
Show me the joys of generosity. Help me to understand that others, perhaps unknown to me, depend on me for help.
Remind me that my world, my parish, need “Good Samaritans” to heal the wounds of our times.
Make me a gift to others in Your name.
You came to show us that the meaning of life consists in giving.
You told us that those who cling too tightly to what they have — without thought of You or others — end up losing everything.
You offered us new values by which to measure the worth of a person’s life.
Help us to realize it is not temporal success or riches or fame that gives life meaning. Rather, it is the service rendered to You and others that brings fulfillment and makes our lives worthwhile.
May all our service help build the kingdom of God,
and may our obedience bring true freedom,
our generosity increase love,
our sacrifices bear much fruit,
and our death lead to eternal life.
Prayer For Generosity by St. Ignatius of Loyola
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not count the cost;
to fight and not heed the wounds;
to toil and not seek for rest;
to labor and not ask for reward, except to know
that I am doing your will.
