Ten Days of Prayer – Day 10

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

– Matthew 6:19-21

Thank God specifically for those material blessings that God has entrusted to you. Make a mental list of them. Acknowledge before God how tempting it is to imagine that you have these things because of your own deserving, and that they are yours to do with as you wish. Ask God to give you a gracious heart. Ask God’s Spirit to stir you to give generously, that your treasure may lead your heart closer to Jesus.
