A Penitent Investor

Lord, allow me enough money to protect me from the evil intentions of men who would manipulate me by my poverty; and give me not so much money that I would lose sight of humanity in pursuit of my wealth.

Lord, I fear that I have investments which are not in the cause of good and that do not support the advancement of Godliness or righteousness on the earth. I am certain that I have invested poorly, when seen through the lens of love; even if my investment have earned high returns, in purely economic terms.

It pains me to think that I support companies who have no regard for the true needs of human beings, but are solely focused on how much wealth they can extract from every human unit.

Show me what to do with my money, so that it helps and doesn’t hurt; so that it is invested in the furtherance of your kingdom on earth, and is not invested with those who desire to be kings over the earth; I do not want to be party to their kingdom. It bothers me knowing that I am.

It is certainly better to invest not just wisely, but Godly; and to feast at the table of our Lord, rather than to dine in the palaces of the wicked. Show me the way that I can go, that is not too high and not too low. What can an average Christian, like me, best do with his money?
