God's Prayer Power - Session 7

Most people do not like to talk about what God says will happen if we pursue greed and selfishness. They would rather talk about things that are easy to hear, such as how much He loves us. And He does love us. But they don't want to get in to the deeper things that have consequences. Yet, we must. We do not want to be ignorant of God's words and plans.

God tells us in Isaiah 5:8-30 what will come about. In reading these verses these three words caught my eye and I felt a leading to dig deeper into their meaning.

The Three Words

After reading Isaiah 5:8-30 you may have other words that caught your attention. If so, you will want to determine their meaning to you.

Greed - a desire for more and more

Selfishness - focused only on self

Consequences - outcome

I found these words to be appropriate for that scripture. In discovering  the meanings of these words I think you will agree.


Yes greed. It isn't just a desire to have more things - power and money - but also to have what others have. You will find greedy people rarely are concerned about the feelings of others. The question greedy people want to know is why they can't have anything they want. It doesn't matter that you have it, they want it and that should settle it. 1 Timothy 6:10 says, "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs".


A selfish person is only interested in their wants, their desires in life and do not think about other people. They are focused on themselves only and what will bring them pleasure, and they do not have any desire to share. Philippians 2:4 says, "Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interest of others".


The outcome of your actions. Drive recklessly, and the consequence may be an accident which as we know accidents can be serious even to the losing of life. There are always consequences. There are good and bad consequences, and the consequence depends on the action. Galations 6:7 says, "Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap".  We are accountable for our actions.

In life we all have many decisions to make each day as to how we will live our lives that day. Let us pray this prayer asking God to help us.


Help us in our families, church’s,

cities, state and country to

 treat others as you have called us.


Help us to treat each other fairly,

With fundamental respect,

To recognize that each person’s

life, possessions, reputations

and marriages are not to be


This week, let us spend time reading Isaiah 5:8-30 asking God to give us a revelation knowledge concering these scriptures and how we can apply His teaching to our lives.

We are His children. Let us come to know our Father in Heaven better.

God bless each and everyone of you this week!
