Prayer For Church Finances
Everlasting God, right now I feel as though I am in a war trying to survive financially in this world. But the scripture states that we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons that I fight with are not weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. I thank you for the authority You have given me, I declare this over my finances, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
Father who art in heaven, hallowed is Your Name. Right now, I submit my body, mind, soul and finances to You. I declare that the devil will flee from me and my finances. I pray that there will be an increase in my finances the more that I submit to You. I thank You for the overflow that I will receive because of You. How excellent is Your Name, Amen.
Jesus, my Savior, your holy Scripture is a beautiful testimony of Your love and Your protection over those who belong to You. Lord, in my financial distress right now, I am clinging to these promises. You said that You keep Your children alive in famine. I am in famine, now, Jesus. I am in a financial famine that is draining life from me. Gracious Lord, bring a breakthrough and deliver for me today. Amen.
Lord, Mighty in Power, I stand in Your presence today and pray for the promises given to Your children. Your holy Word gives me the courage to hope and seek Your help. You are always good; therefore, I trust You. You have told us that those who seek after You would not lack any good thing. Lord, I am calling out to You today. I am seeking Your face in this financial trial. Free me from this, Lord. Amen.
Gracious Father, your holy Word says: I give thanks to the Lord for He is good. I echo the sentiment. I am also thankful that amid my financial distress, I can call out to You in confidence, knowing You hear me. I give praise to You because just as You delivered Your children, You will deliver me too. Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness. Amen.
Lord, I lift up my elders (church board) to You. Help us respect and honor them as they direct the affairs of our church. May they wholeheartedly give their attention to prayer and ministry of the Word. Keep them above reproach, devoted to their families, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable and able to teach. May they be gentle and honest as they deal with people.
Lord, I lift up my pastor to You. Thank You for his servant's heart. Keep him from losing heart when ministry gets tough. Help him prove faithful with the things you have entrusted to him. Teach him Your ways so that he knows You and finds favor with You as He leads us. Keep him open and honest before You and help him to represent the truth plainly.
Lord, I lift up our church finances. May we sow generously into our church without reluctance or compulsion. Make all grace abound so we have all we need for every good work You've assigned us. Make us rich in ways that result in generosity on our part so You will be praised. Keep reminding us of your promise to throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out blessing on all who bring the whole tithe into Your house (2 Cor. 9:6-11; Mal. 3:10).
