Volunteer Prayer

Dear God, Volunteers are special people. I pray that Christians will volunteer time, talents, and treasure for the benefit of Your kingdom. I pray that we will help our fellow humans in their times of spiritual, emotional or physical need. I pray that we will be active in the ministry of our local churches and in good will efforts in our communities. I pray that we will follow Jesus’ example, to be “no respecter of persons.” We must not be prejudiced because of a person’s race, status in society, disabilities, or spiritual standing. We must love, pray, and be willing vessels through which You minister and work in this world. Paid positions are great, but more volunteers are needed to share the responsibilities and manage the resources, which you have entrusted to us. Lord, please move through Your Spirit to motivate Christians to service–and please bless those who volunteer. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
