Setting Aside the Tithe

    Father, Your Word states, Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year….so that you may learn to revere the Lord Your God always (Deut. 14:22,23 niv). We purpose to set aside the tithe because it belongs to You, O God our Father.
    It is our delight to bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of our income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in Your house. Lord of hosts, in accordance with Your Word, we prove You now by paying You the tithe. You are opening the windows of heaven for us and pouring us out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
    Thank You, Father, for rebuking the devourer for our sakes; he shall not destroy the fruits of our ground, neither shall our vine drop its fruit before the time in the field.
    We praise You, Lord, for recording our names in Your book of remembrance of those who reverence and worshipfully fear You and who think on Your name so that we may be Yours in the day when You publicly recognize and openly declare us to be Your jewels (Your special possession, Your peculiar treasure).
    Thank You for bringing us out of the authority of darkness and translating us into the Kingdom of Your dear Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
    In His name we pray, amen.
