Prayer To Overcome Greed

Today we continue our series on overcoming greed with a prayer. There are many ways to overcome greed, but ask yourself, what are the ways you can exploit greed in your own life? What do you need in your life that is just not enough for you? O Almighty and All-Merciful God, the Source of all goodness and love: teach us to share our blessings with others, to be generous with our resources and to be concerned for those who are less fortunate than we are. Help us to remember that we are our brother’s keeper. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen Guarding against the spirit of greed and desire for material possessions is a key factor for success in this existence. This ritual will help you overcome any immoral or negative desires within you, to ultimately achieve better spiritual development through your life.

There are many reasons why people become greedy and only a few are more important than the others. People can be greedy for wealth, money and even power. Sometimes people use greed for gain but some do it for fun or even for the love of money? Greed to some is an on going battle that once controlled gets out of control and to others, it is not a big deal. All of us at times have a tendency to feel greedy. There is nothing wrong with wanting more and more material possessions, until we allow greed to take over our heart. Greed can be something that causes constant inner turmoil. It’s like an addiction that keeps going stronger, and stronger, and stronger, unless we find the root an remove it, before it takes over our hearts, minds and souls as well. We all have elements of greed in us. It can be just as much of a challenge for the rich person to practice generosity as it for the poor person. The definition of greed is to crave something excessively, even without regard for others and their needs. Since greed is a selfish desire, it is often accompanied by a lack of empathy. Greed can be found in consumerism, sexual immorality, lying, fraud, and jealousy just to name a few. I’m sure you can think of many other vices that are related to greed.

One of the problems that people have is greed. Greed can lead to many different problems but not knowing when it is time to stop can lead people down a path of tragedy. The person who never knows when to stop when it comes to their greed can destroy families, themselves and their futures. You can be greedy in a lot of ways – you might think that you deserve more attention and time than others, or you may simply want more money than you need. No matter what form it takes, greed is never leading us down the right track. There’s always going to be someone who has more than you, or deserves more than what they have.
