        (07/28/2000) firstfruit offerings
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: firstfruit offerings

[Proverbs 3:9-11]
9 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the
firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and
your vats will brim over with new wine. (NIV)

I became a Christian when I was 15. For a year I
attended church and no one told me about tithing.
After a year, a brother-in-Christ told me about
tithing. I thought to myself "How can I tithe when I
don't have enough at the end of the month?". I get a
fixed allowance from my dad and after deducting the
bus fares and the meals, I don't have any left even as
savings. I went to one of my classmates and told her
my predicament. She told me to give first and not wait
till the end of the month. That must have been the
best advice anyone had given me on tithing.

So, I gave at the beginning of the month and thought
of how I would make do for the rest of the month. The
next month, my father gave me triple my allowance
because he got a promotion and a raise.

God is the One who sees and He is the One who honours
our faith and receives our first-fruit offering and He
will be the One who fill our barns to overflowing.
Give first and not wait until the end of the month
because our giving also has to be in faith.

2. New prayer requests:
i. Contentment -- joeljohnson
Pray for my contentment in where He has put me in His
will. Pray also for my wife to seek Him and for satan
to be bound in Jesus name from tempting her in worldly
pleasures. And that she find true happiness in Jesus
Christ and His salvation for her.

(Joe submitted a previous prayer request for
reconciliation of his 19-year marriage. Continue to
uphold him.)

Hi prayer warriors,
I will be in prayer for each and every one of you. Be
in prayer for me and my family.
your friend in christ (subrina27)

I live in my hometown for about 29 years. I recently

employment and a place to raise my three children
alone and not to mention a church home.

iv. special prayer -- abrown
Lord, I ask you to bless me with the strength and
understanding to get through this ectopic pregnancy.
Lord I ask You to place Your healing hand on me Lord.
Lord I ask You to guide me, carry me Lord through
whatever healing the doctor sees fit. Lord You are my
Doctor, so Lord I ask You to walk with me through
surgery or be there with me to take my medicine. Lord
whichever way You see fit, Lord I ask You to touch me.
Lord give me patience to deal with the things going on
around me, & the strength to be a better mother. Lord
I ask you to touch me right now, in Jesus Name. Amen.
