A Prayer for a Generous Heart

Person smiling

What’s your most prized possession? There’s nothing wrong with having things, or with enjoying them. The problem comes when our things have us.

Thankfully, God modeled a different way to live when He sacrificed His greatest treasure for us. His generosity is sacrificial and counter-cultural.

When we give like God does, and we honor Him with that giving, it draws us closer to Him. It causes us to stop looking at ourselves, and start looking out for others. The more we draw near to God, the more our priorities and values start to reflect His.

So, how do you live generously? It starts with asking God to give you a generous mindset. If you’re not sure how to do that, try praying this prayer.


Thank You for showing me what generosity looks like. I confess that at times it’s easy for me to focus on things that don’t matter. But today, I surrender to Your will, trusting in You completely. Change the way I think, and give me a generous heart. Make me aware of the resources I have, and how I can use them to serve others. Help me to live a life that blesses others just as You have richly blessed me.

In Jesus’ name,


When you surrender to God by living generously, it changes lives.

Help Millions Get Access to God’s Word

Crowded street

And then He told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.”

MARK 16:15

Having God’s Word at your fingertips through Bible App means you can connect with God anytime—anywhere.

But for millions of people around the world, that’s just not possible.

Barriers like expensive data and unreliable internet connectivity are still a daily reality.

To help solve this problem, we launched an app that doesn’t take up a lot of storage space and is completely available offline.

Since launching late last year, Bible App Lite has been downloaded over 2.5 million times!

And because it’s available in Swahili, Portuguese, English, and French, countless people are experiencing greater intimacy with God today because they’re reading Scripture in their heart language.

This incredible breakthrough was made possible through the generosity of people like you.

You can be part of what God is doing through YouVersion by setting up a recurring gift today. And when you do, you are helping even more people around the world connect with God every day through new, innovative solutions like Bible App Lite.

God is at work … and He’s using people like you!

God is at work…

…And He’s using people like you!

This year, more people than ever before are already experiencing greater intimacy with God through YouVersion.

And it’s all possible thanks to the support of our generous Community.

This year alone, our Community is… Completing more than twice as many Guided Prayers-up 225% compared to last year! Completing 89% more Verse of the Day Stories

As people set new habits and goals, the YouVersion app is here to meet them—and your generosity helps make that possible.

All this momentum means more people in more places are deepening their relationship with God through Scripture every day.

People like Kristin, in Indiana, who shared…

“I was introduced to Christ and YouVersion within days of each other. Applying the Bible to my life seemed outside my understanding and intimidating. Through YouVersion’s helpful daily Scripture and devotional Plans, I have a better understanding of God.”

Imagine the millions of people like Kristin who will experience the life-giving truth of God’s Word when you give today. That’s the power of your partnership at work. And this is just the beginning!

Impact even more lives by giving today.

In Kristin’s own words, this is the life-change you’re supporting…

“Now, I pray and talk to God multiple times a day. I want to start and end my days with my Heavenly Creator, and YouVersion is a huge part of that for me.”

Thank you for giving as generously as you can. Together, we can help more people discover how life-altering an intimate relationship with God can be.

I’ll help others experience intimacy with God >>
