“A Prayer For Having Our Treasure In Heaven”

February 26, 2016

Praying man Father, the longer we live the more we realize that treasures we store up here on earth grow old, get broken, need fixed, turn rusty and are often lost along the way. But when we gather treasures of the heart such as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, and many other such fruit, they are treasures that are most useful in our spiritual treasure chest here on earth. And their virtuous character transfers with us to the other side. Help us not to seek after treasures that expire but rather treasures that have lasting eternal value, for where our treasure is there our heart is also. We want to keep our focus upward so that our heart’s longings are there as well. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
