I. EXORDIUM:

Are you kind enough to pray for me?

II. AUDIENCE PROFILE:

Believers

III. OBJECTIVES:

To show that prayers exceeds giving.

IV. TEXT:

Ezra 6:8-10 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“Moreover, I hereby decree that you are to help these elders of the Jews as they rebuild this Temple of God. You must pay the full construction costs, without delay, from my taxes collected in the province west of the Euphrates River so that the work will not be interrupted.

“Give the priests in Jerusalem whatever is needed in the way of young bulls, rams, and male lambs for the burnt offerings presented to the God of heaven. And without fail, provide them with as much wheat, salt, wine, and olive oil as they need each day.

Then they will be able to offer acceptable sacrifices to the God of heaven and pray for the welfare of the king and his sons.

G. Key verses:

Ezra 1:3 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Any of you who are his people may go to Jerusalem in Judah to rebuild this Temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives in Jerusalem. And may your God be with you!

Ezra 7:10 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

This was because Ezra had determined to study and obey the Law of the Lord and to teach those decrees and regulations to the people of Israel.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Expenses and payment to workers

"Moreover, I hereby decree that you are to help these elders of the Jews as they rebuild this Temple of God. You must pay the full construction costs, without delay, from my taxes collected in the province west of the Euphrates River so that the work will not be interrupted."

1. Physical materials giving examples:

Numbers 7:13 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

His offering consisted of a silver platter weighing 31/4 pounds and a silver basin weighing 13/4 pounds (as measured by the weight of the sanctuary shekel). These were both filled with grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil.

1 Kings 3:4 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

The most important of these places of worship was at Gibeon, so the king went there and sacrificed 1,000 burnt offerings.

B. Daily providence of offerings

"Give the priests in Jerusalem whatever is needed in the way of young bulls, rams, and male lambs for the burnt offerings presented to the God of heaven. And without fail, provide them with as much wheat, salt, wine, and olive oil as they need each day."

C. In exchange for prayers for well-being of the king and his sons

"Then they will be able to offer acceptable sacrifices to the God of heaven and pray for the welfare of the king and his sons."

1. Prayers given for the offerers/offerings:

Ephesians 6:18-19 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God’s mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.

Proverbs 30:8 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.

Hebrews 13:18-19 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do.

And especially pray that I will be able to come back to you soon.

Prayers can move mountains and prayers are everything. I would rather have 10 committed people who loved GOD to pray for me, rather than receive U.S.$100 from each, because money can be spent while prayers will last after our lifetimes.

IX. CONCLUSION:

Prayers exceed giving.
