A Prayer about Heavenly Treasure Prompted by Luke 12:32-34

Dear Father,

Our hearts are too often here on earth, while we know from all that you have said that they should be in heaven.  Help us to change our focus.

Moreover, thank you for telling us what to do in order to change it.  Let us intentionally use our lives, our energy and our possessions to store up treasure where it really belongs – in heaven with you.  Remind us when we are working too much or too hard for the things of this world.  We fully expect that as we work for true, imperishable riches, our hearts will follow the treasure that we store up.  

Help us to live our lives in such a way that treasure in heaven will be provided as a result.  Our hearts belong with you and that is where we want them to be.

In Christ,
Amen
