Reflections of the Heart:
This is the ______ day of the Omer. “We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by Jesus Christ, our eternal Redeemer and Savior, and commanded us to count the Omer. By faith, we wait with joyful hearts to celebrate the sending of Your Holy Spirit.”
Honorable Father, we thank You for the Spring Feasts. Thank You for this special time to commune with You. Thank You for providing for our families so that we can bring an offering back to You. Lord, the heavens proclaim Your glory and the skies display Your craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Your presence known. We praise You, our Rock. Be exalted, the God of our salvation! We will praise You among the nations and sing praises to Your Name! Because of You, Lord, we are filled with laughter, and we sing for joy. Others have said what amazing things the Lord has done for them. Yes, You, Lord, have done amazing things for our Church Family! What joy we have experienced with You!
Loving Father, You have set the appointed times for us to celebrate and worship You in the spring. As a part of the celebration, Your Word instructs us to bring offerings as a sign of our love and devotion to You. As a Church Family, we will obey Your Word and we look forward to giving of our best. We will give with cheerful hearts to You during the Spring Feasts. As we give, we trust that according to Your Word, You will generously provide all that we need. Then, we will always have everything we need and have plenty left over to share with others. We confess that we will trust You with our finances and will give as we are led by the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, my Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits offerings will be:
Holy Spirit, please help us to yield our hearts to You as You lead and direct us in our giving during the Spring Feasts. Help us to be willing and generous in our giving and not hesitant or stingy. Lord, You said that if we honored Your feasts, You would increase our harvest. Father, touch the financial seeds that we have planted and cause them to grow. Bless us with increase so that we will have a tremendous offering to give to You during this special time. Increase our faith to trust You for unseen and miraculous financial blessings. For those in need of financial resurrection, bless their finances. Father, bless those who do not have anything to give with a miraculous offering. Help our Church Family to honor You with disciplined financial stewardship. Father, show us Your glory as we give our offerings during the Spring Feasts and please accept them as a sign of our love and devotion to You.
Loving Father, forgive us when we have not brought our tithes and offerings to You. Forgive our hesitancy when we are asked to give to You. Forgive those who have created financial situations in their lives that are so desperately in need of repair that they are not positioned to give freely during the feasts. Forgive all of us for any selfishness or greed. Remind us of those that we owe so that we may repay our debts. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord God, the Almighty, You are the one who is and who always was. You have assumed Your great power and have begun to reign. All glory belongs to You, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are Yours before all time, in the present, and beyond all time! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
