Prayer For Finances
Precious God, You are my treasure. It is easy to become materialistic here on earth, for where my treasure is, there my heart will be also. I pray that my spending will be a reflection of my values. I pray that I respect You with my finances. I need a financial miracle right now, but Lord, I do not hold my finances above You because the love of money is the root of all evil! I place You at the center of my heart and mind, Amen.
Magnificent Father, I come to You for my financial miracle today! I turn to You, not to man because it is You who has everything that I need! It is You who sends poverty and wealth. You humble, and You exalt. You are in control of all things, and You are the supplier of all needs! I turn to You for my financial prosperity, I lift up Your name for my financial miracle! Amen.
I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.
I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties, and fears about money, and replace them with faith.
I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.
I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.
I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state.
I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life.
I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed.
And finally, I ask you to help me understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills and knowledge to be of service in the world.
Thank you, God.
Lord God, because You are my helper, I will not be afraidnot of the thing I've committed to do that is too big for me; not of what people think of me; not of a lack of finances; not of anything.
God, help us straighten out our financial problems. We haven't been good stewards of our money. Give us a new attitude and a new commitment to managing our finances wisely and responsibly. If our problems are beyond our repair, help us find a way, Your way, to meet our obligations. We place this need before You, knowing that You will guide us to a good solution. Amen.
Dear Lord, help me to leave my financial worries in Your Hands. Guide me to peace so that I can hear Your wisdom. Keep me mindful of my blessings no matter how much or little I may have. Grant me the patience and tolerance necessary to calm my spirit knowing that You have everything under control. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Dear Lord, I surrender my financial worries to Your love and care. Guide me with Your wisdom and help me make the changes necessary to live within my means. Help me remember my needs are met according to Your riches in glory. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Father, praise You for saving us by Your indisputable grace. Nothing trumps Your just and loving hand. No poor decision we make, irresponsible purchase, or insurmountable debt can separate us from Your love.
Paul reminds us in Ephesians that there isn't anything we can do to gain or lose our salvation. The freedom Christ won us on the cross is what it is. Nothing we do or say can add or subtract from His sacrifice or from who He is.
Without a concrete Rock to stand on, we would drift along thinking that we somehow have the power to trump Your authority. Thank You for reminding us, through Your Word, that we do not. That You love us indisputably and always, whether we are precise accountants or frivolous spenders. You know who we are, and You know our heart's intentions and our struggles. You are the only one equipped to balance and judge where we are at. You consistently say that we are Yours and remind us, through Your Word, of Jesus' sacrifice for us.
Father, we confess our financial challenges. In a society that lifts money up to such high importance, it's extremely hard to battle our mind's eye each day. Thank You for blessing us with money to spend, and help us to honor You with our choices. Forgive us for mindlessly buying things in dollar sections and store end-caps. Sometimes, there are things that we never knew we needed until the bright discount sticker catches our eye. Strengthen us in those moments to fight our impulses by yielding to the power of the Holy Spirit within us.
Help us to see our finances through Your eyes. You have a purpose and plan for our lives, and every cent we're blessed with to manage. Stir our hearts to seek Your counsel on everything from buying dessert to a brand new car. Urge us to seek You in Your Word, and prayerfully consider Jesus' example on this earth. We confess that we don't often stop to think about what You want for our wallet over what we want. When new trends are just a swipe of the credit card away, stir in our hearts to fight temptation.
Jesus walked the earth simply, as a carpenter without a flashy lifestyle. His miracles were something money couldn't buy. Not then, and not now. God's love and God's plan look different for all of us, but His love does not rise and fall on a scale. He is everlasting, omnipotent, and sovereign. And He has chosen us. Created us. And called us good.
Our purpose on this earth is to help others. Whether we struggle to part with our money, or have trouble accepting God's generous blessing, help us to be laser-focused on our conversation with You. When we look around to compare our finances with others, it will always cause our hearts unrest. We don't have the privilege of knowing people inside and out and from the moment of their creation like You do. We assume wealthy equals satisfied. But only Christ holds the key to all happiness.
Whether we seek careers or possessions to heighten our visibility in society, none will ever satisfy or compare to Jesus' love. Help us to follow Christ in our daily lives. Prayer is life changing, that You promise us. We lift up the bills that puzzle and scare us to You. Guide us, direct us, and equip us to trust You more and more in the daily direction of our financial lives.
Thank You for providing for us, Father. Just the fact that we are skimming over these words is prove that You've provided for another day for us. Bless our finances, and help us to seek You first in everything, each day. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
