“Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to thank you for the talents you have given me. I know that every man is gifted with different abilities and that every good thing comes from you.
Lord, forgive me for comparing myself to others. There are some very unique things about me that I seem to take for granted. I repent of this sin. It shows an ungrateful heart.
Help me to focus on my gifts and not my shortcomings.
Move my heart to be motivated to do what I can with what you have given me. I want to grow in a positive direction and I need you to keep me on the right tract to do this.
I want invest my gifts wisely.
So, I stand before you in complete humility.
I bow before you and present all that I have back to you. Use my talents for your glory, Lord.
I know if I give all I have to you, it will be the wisest investment a person could make.
I will be richer for it on so many levels.
I understand that when I do this, I’m not guaranteed seeing the fruits of my investment in this lifetime.
I might have to wait until the next to really see what you have done with my investment.
That’s okay, because I am doing this in complete faith that this is what you want for my life.
As my Heavenly Father, you only desire the best for me.
I trust you, help me to trust with the kind of supernatural trust I need when challenges come along to test my dedication to you.
In Jesus’ precious name, because His amazing sacrifice makes mine a pleasure, Amen.”
