5For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
6Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
8Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
9Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
10And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
11Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.Next Verse 13
O Beloved God, Salutations and Greetings!
I approach you as your child and your own creation.
With a pure heart I ask for your divine grace.
Please shower on me abundance of money from your infinite source on a regular basis.
Your ways are innumerable and methods beyond my comprehension. Hence it is best that I leave to you the timings and sources through which you send the money and riches.
Whatever you do I trust that it is for my highest good.
With full faith in you and your miraculous ways, I open my body, mind and soul to receiving your gift of financial wealth and riches.
I pledge to use the money for my good and good of others.
God’s will be done! Thank You
