Tithing and Offering Affirmation

CONFESSION OF A GENEROUS CHRISTIAN GIVER
(TO BE READ IN UNISON)

Father, you are first in our lives, so today we honor you through our giving and recognize that it is an act of worship. Our tithes, gifts, and offerings are given in love, out of respect and by faith that your word is true and never returns void.  Tithing is a standard and starting place under law but we are under Grace; we know Grace is greater and goes beyond the law!  According to the Word we are called to give regularly, personally, and proportionately “as God has prospered us.” Our blessings to you will increase as our income increases! (1 Corinthians16:1-2)

We have decided, in our own hearts, to give cheerfully, recognizing that you have promised to generously provide all we need, at all times with plenty left over to share with others. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7) (Philippians 4:19)

By faith, we believe that as we are obedient in our giving, You will continue to open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings in the form of supernatural favor, new financial discipline, godly relationships, excellent health, abundant wealth, gifts and surprises, debt reduction, witty inventions, and divine protection! (Malachi 3:10) And today I commit myself to be part of this 100% generous giving community called East Friendship.

Thank you Lord, for this seed and the opportunity to give! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
