2 Guiding Prayers for Black Friday Shoppers

Lord, your loving grace reminds us of the value of the blessings you have given us.

A Guiding Prayer for Black Friday Sales

Dear Lord, grant that we may keep Your love on our minds and hearts this Black Friday. Help us to be patient in long lines, to show kindness in crowds, to have respect and selflessness in all situations.
Grant us Your protection as we travel on this busy day. Do not let the spirit of greed and consumption overtake us this shopping season. Let us remember to provide for someone’s needs, and not just their wants.
Remind us to be thankful for all that we have; especially the people in our lives that we will be shopping for. Help us to keep in mind that Christmas is about the love that Christ has for us and not just about giving and receiving gifts.
We thank you for the means and ability You have given us to shop for our loved ones. We pray for the wants of the poor and for those who have no one to be with them this Christmas. Grant us your love and mercy throughout the entire Christmas season. Amen.

A Prayer for Black Friday Shoppers

Heavenly Father, we first and foremost thank You for the provision to be able to buy gifts during a time when the world’s economy is still in recovery mode. But as we thank you for this provision, we also ask for knowledge, wisdom, and discernment so that we can be good stewards of the financial resources you have given us.

Do not let us exceed our budgets but let us stay within our budgets remembering that beyond the sales, on the other side, are people who could really use the money we would spend on gifts. Let us remember that our wants represent someone else’s needs.

Do not let the spirit of greed and consumption overtake us on this day. Let us remember that the Christmas season is not about buying things and receiving things as much as it is about spreading love and reminding people of the great love that came to the earth for us.

May that same love extend on this day. May we exercise patience in long lines; kindness in crowds and may traveling mercies be extending to us in traffic. Grant everyone safety throughout the day and beyond. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
