Another Prayer for Finances
Daniel 6:25-27, Proverbs 10:1-17
Reflections of the Heart:
“Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, let the Lord be magnified, who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Psalm 35:27
Father, You are great and You do wondrous things. You are God alone. Lord, You are in Your Holy temple; You are on Your heavenly throne. To You, O God, do we give thanks. Yes, to You do we give thanks. We thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace. We thank You for Your love for us that never ceases and Your mercy which never comes to an end. Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. Thank You, Father, for being our strength, our shield, our provider and our Savior. We extol You, our God, O King; and we bless Your Name forever and ever.
Father, it is Your will that we excel in the area of our finances. As a Church Family , we recognize that the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Therefore, we will earn, save, spend and invest money in obedience to Your perfect plan for our lives and our families. We confess that as You bring financial blessings into our lives, we will remember that it is You who gives us the power to get wealth so that the covenant which You swore to our fathers will be established and we will be positioned as instruments to build Your kingdom. Father, we confess that all that we set our hands to do is blessed because You have commanded blessings on our storehouses, including savings, investments and retirement accounts. Lord, we declare that as Your blessings overtake us, we will be able to lend money to many and not have to borrow from anyone. We confess that as we bring the tithes into Your house, we are expecting You to pour out blessings that we will not have room to receive and to rebuke the devourer for our sakes. Lord, because we will be faithful stewards of Your financial blessings, we expect You to confirm Your word and make us rulers over abundant wealth. We call forth a release of a new anointing of entrepreneurship, new ideas and new businesses upon our lives. We command promotions and financial increase to manifest in the life of every Church Family member during this year according to God’s Word. Lord, we call forth a spirit of excellence and abundance in all aspects of our lives. Additionally, we command all of the finances for the KBC to come forth now!
Holy Spirit, as a people, we ask that You shift our focus from spending to saving and from consuming our income to building wealth. We ask You to help us as a Church Family to bind mercy and truth around our necks and write them on our hearts; causing us to have favor in Your sight and in the sight of people. Lord, help us to study Your word, to meditate on it day and night, and to apply Your word to our daily living, so that we may make our way prosperous and have good success. Holy Spirit, help us to build business and personal relationships with other Christians. Help us to begin to love people and use money, rather than loving money and using people. We pray for a breaking of old mindsets and generational curses of poverty and lack within the families of our congregation.
Today, I commit to making the following changes in order to maximize my financial future in the Lord:
Father, forgive us for our sins. Forgive us for repeating patterns of financial failures such as living beyond our means and misusing credit cards. Forgive those in our congregation and our communities for our heavy dependence on payday loan outlets and pawn shops. Forgive us for failing to develop financial plans that include debt reduction, savings and investments. Forgive many of us for entertaining thoughts that we are supposed to have the most of the worst and the least of the best. Forgive those men in our congregation who have contributed to poverty-like conditions for many of our children by refusing to make court-ordered child support payments. Forgive us for not recognizing that You will not withhold any good thing from us, as we walk uprightly before You. Forgive us for words and thoughts of doubt and unbelief. Father, forgive us for walking by sight, rather than walking in faith. Lord, remind us of those we need to forgive, and we will be quick to forgive.
Lead us not into temptation; but, deliver us from the evil one.
Yours, God, is the power and the glory. Yours, O Lord, is the victory and the majesty. All that is in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
