What causes quarrels and fights among you? Is it not your passions that are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight. There are some things you do not receive because you do not ask in prayer. Sometimes you ask and do not receive because you ask to spend it on your passions. . . Therefore Scripture says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” – James 4:1-6
Thank you for always hearing my prayers. You are always listening even when I don’t feel like praying. I want to invite you into the circumstances of my business. Help me to remember to take a moment to ask of you in prayer. I don’t want to miss out on answered prayer because I didn’t ask. Even more, drive away my selfish pride that pollutes my prayers. Give me a pure and humble heart to glorify you with your provision this week. I lift up the needs of my business this week and ask that you would provide for us as only you can do.
In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
