The Prayer of A Poor Man

Geoff ChapmanPrayers0 Comments

Abba Father,

Though I am poor and my gift is small,

Out of your blessing to me I bring to you an offering of obedience, in faith,

That I might enjoy fellowship with you.

I know that everything I have is from you,

According to the grace given to me, may I give back to you.

Thank you that your fellowship is not dependent upon the richness of my offering

But upon the abundance of your gifts to me in Christ.


Father, give me understanding and faith in order that I might give to you all that I can.

When the vineyard overflows,  I will bring wine.

When the fields are golden,  I will bring grain.

When the earth is barren, I will bring my hands to serve you.

When my hands are useless, I will bring you my voice.

When my voice is gone, I will still bring you my heart.

When my heart is still, I will bring you my life.


Father, give me peace as I accept that I cannot give that which I have not received.

But Father, increase the harvest of my life that I may give you more,

For the glory of your name.
