A Prayer for Persons Looking for Employment or Those in Need of a Financial Breakthrough

A Prayer for Persons Looking for Employment or Those in Need of a Financial Breakthrough

 

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 48, Psalm 112

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Sometimes things happen in life that are beyond our control.  It is during these trying times that we can rejoice in the knowledge that our God will never leave us nor forsake us.  Our relationship with Him allows us to walk through life’s challenges knowing that through the blood of Christ, we are overcomers.  Therefore, cast your cares upon Him for He truly does care for you.

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Father, holy and righteous is Your Name.  You are a great God, and a great King, above all other gods.  You are our God; and we are the people of our pasture, and the sheep of Your hand.  Lord, You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  You are Jehovah Jireh, our provider and we place our trust in You.  Thank You for providing employment to Your children.  Thanks for sustaining those who are in need of a financial breakthrough.  Thank You for helping them daily.  Thank You, Father, for being our source and our supply.

 

Father, it is Your will that Your children live healthy, productive, happy, and balanced lives. We believe that as those persons who are seeking employment seek Your face; You will hear them and deliver them from all their fears.  We confess that they will not let mercy and truth get away from them.  They will wear them like a necklace; and write them deep within their hearts.  Then they will find favor with both You and men, and they will gain a good reputation.  Lord, we declare that they will trust in You with all their hearts; and not depend on their own understanding.  They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we believe that You will direct their paths.  Father, as they trust You and do good, they will live safely in the land and prosper.  In Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of employment to open for our unemployed.  We declare that as they receive employment, they will work with enthusiasm, as though they are working for You rather than for man.   We decree that those persons who are in need of a financial breakthrough will be still in Your presence and wait patiently for You to act.  As they do this, they will not worry about food and clothing, for if You clothe the grass of the field, how much more will You provide for them.

 

I will take the following steps in seeking employment today by: 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

______________________________________________________________________________

Father, help those who are unemployed and those who need a financial breakthrough to trust You.  Please provide jobs, education and promotions for them.  Remind them that because they trust in You, they will not lack any good thing.   Father, some need a miracle right now.  Please help them.  Holy Spirit, for those who have a poor work ethic, help them to improve.   Please help those who have mismanaged their funds, to live disciplined lives.

 

Father, forgive those people who demonstrate a poor work ethic.  Forgive them for not being on time, leaving early, and wasting time.  Forgive those who have not paid their tithes and offerings (consistently), or spent their money unnecessarily. Forgive those who have operated in selfish ambitions, greed, lust, pride, arrogance, and rebellion.  Lord, remind them of people they need to forgive; and help them to forgive.

 

Lead them not into temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

We worship You, O King, Creator of heaven and earth!  To whom shall we compare Your great and marvelous works?  Who is Your equal?  Lord, You are high above all nations.  Your glory is above the heavens.  Yours is the Kingdom, power, and glory forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for God’s Favor Upon Entrepreneurs and the Economic Development in our Community

A Prayer for God’s Favor Upon Entrepreneurs and the Economic Development in our Community

 

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 95, John 16:5-15

Reflections of the Heart:

Godly entrepreneurs should be mindful of the seven things the Lord detests which are haughty eyes, lying tongues, hands that kill the innocent, hearts that plot evil, feet that race to do wrong, false witnesses who pour out lies and persons who sows discord among brothers.  As entrepreneurs, walk in godly integrity and our communities will reap the benefits.

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Father, You are God and Your word is true.  We extol You as our God and King.  We will bless Your name forever and ever.  Everyday we will bless You and praise Your name.  You are great and greatly to be praised.  You are our source, and we place our trust in You.  Thank You for providing for our entrepreneurs throughout the years.  Thank You, Father, for blessing businesses within our community and opening doors of opportunity that have produced profit and employment.  Thank You for the economic development that we have in our community.

Father, we confess Your word to be operative in the lives of our entrepreneurs and in the economic development of our community.  Father, we confess that our entrepreneurs are blessed and we expect favor to surround Your people like a shield.  We confess that as our entrepreneurs commit their works to You their thoughts will be established.  We declare that our entrepreneurs will honor You with their possessions and with the first fruits of all their increases so that their barns will be filled and their vats will overflow with new wine.  We declare that whatever they do, they will do it heartily, as to You and not to men.  Lord, we confess that as our entrepreneurs walk uprightly, no good thing will be withheld from them.  We expect You to look upon the economic development in our community favorably and make our land fruitful.  Father, as You continue to bless us, we will be a blessing to the entrepreneurs in our community by frequenting their businesses.

Father, we ask that Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power rest on each entrepreneur, investor, and employee.  Fill them with the knowledge of Your will and give them a thirst for Your word so that they can learn Your ways for practicing business.  Holy Spirit, help them to make righteous decisions and operate with justice and integrity.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose for their businesses.  Father, encourage potential entrepreneurs to write down Your vision for their business and make it plain in a business plan so that they and their investors can implement it.  We ask for the creation of new revenue streams within our community.  Touch the public and private sectors to continue to invest into our community.  Lord, please continue to bless our community so that it will reflect Your glory and benefit the people living in it.

Holy Spirit, show me what I can do to help improve the economy of my community?:

____________________________________________________________________________________

Lord, forgive our entrepreneurs for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your leadership for their businesses.  Forgive those who do not trust in You but lean on their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not been faithful in giving through tithes and offerings.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for the community they live in.  Forgive me for not supporting those businesses You have established in my community.  Remind entrepreneurs and business owners in our community to be forgiving; and help them to be quick to forgive.

Lead them not into temptation; but, deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, You are the King of glory.  You are the Lord of hosts.  You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Finances

A Prayer for Finances

Scripture Reading:

Jeremiah 10:6-16, Malachi 3:1-8

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

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Father, You are great and You perform wonderful deeds.  You alone are God.  Lord, You are in Your Holy temple; You rule from heaven.  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 unfailing love for us that never ends and Your mercies which never cease.  Your mercies are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  We exalt You, our God and King; and we praise Your Name forever and ever.  Thank You, Father, for being our strength, our shield, our provider and our Savior.  Thank You for blessing us with jobs that provide us with income.  Thank You for promotions and raises.  Thank You for favor with our bosses and co-workers.

Father, we confess that we will 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 You give us the power to get wealth.  We declare that we are set on high above the nations of the earth because we diligently obey Your voice and observe Your commandments, carefully.  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 expect You to pour out blessings so large that we will not have room to receive them.  Lord, we declare that we will be faithful stewards of Your financial blessings and we expect You to confirm Your Word and make us rulers over abundant wealth.  We call forth a new anointing of entrepreneurship, new ideas and new businesses in our communities.  Lord, we call forth a spirit of excellence and prosperity in our finances and in all areas of our lives.

Holy Spirit, please shift our focus from spending to saving and from consuming our income to building wealth.  We ask You to help us tie loyalty and kindness around our necks and write them deep within our hearts that we may find favor with both You and people and we will earn a good reputation.  Father, we pray for promotions and financial increase.  Holy Spirit, help us to study the Word, to meditate on it day and night and observe to do the things written within it, so that we may make our way prosperous and have success in all that we do.  Help us to build business and personal relationships with other Christians, and give us favor with the business community.  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 our families.

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 us for failing to develop financial plans that include debt reduction, savings and investments.  Forgive many of us for believing that we are supposed to have the most of the worst and the least of the best.  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 by 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.

Lord, You are our Savior.  You are the hope of everyone on earth.  You formed the mountains by Your power and armed Yourself with mighty strength.  You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations. Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your wonders.  From where the sun rises to where it sets, You inspire shouts of joy.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer for Business Leaders

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 95, Deuteronomy 8

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Godly business leaders should be mindful of the seven things the Lord detests: haughty eyes, lying tongues, hands that kill the innocent, hearts that plot evil, feet that race to do wrong, false witnesses who pour out lies and persons who sow discord among brothers. God needs business leaders who will incorporate His principles in their business practices.  As our business leaders walk in godly integrity, their businesses will grow and our communities will reap the benefits.

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Father, to You do we sing a new song.  Your praises will be sung from the ends of the earth.  Your praises will be shouted from the mountaintops!  Let the whole world glorify You, Lord.  We bless You because You are the Lord, our God, the Holy One of Israel, our Savior. Lord, You always keep Your promises and You are gracious in all that You do.  You help those who have fallen and lift those who are bent beneath their loads.  Thank You for blessing the business community in our city throughout the years.  Thank You, Father, for opening doors of opportunity that have produced profit and employment.  Thank You for increasing economic development in our city.

 

Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our business leaders and in the economic development of our city.  Father, we declare that our business leaders are blessed and we expect favor to surround them like a shield.  We confess that as our leaders commit their works to You, their plans will be established.  We declare that they will honor You with their possessions and with the first fruits of all their increase so that their barns will be filled and their vats will overflow with new wine.  We declare that whatever they do, they will do it heartily, as to You and not to men.  Lord, we confess that as our business leaders walk uprightly, no good thing will be withheld from them.  Father, we expect You to look favorably upon the economic development in our city and bless our city to be fruitful.

Father, we ask that Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power rest on each business leader, investor, and entrepreneur.  Fill them with the knowledge of Your will and give them a thirst for Your Word so that they can incorporate Your principles into their business practices.  Help them to make righteous decisions and operate with justice and integrity.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for their businesses.  Father, encourage potential business leaders and entrepreneurs to write down Your vision for their businesses and make it plain in a business plan so that they and their investors can implement it.  We ask You to reveal new revenue streams within the business community.  Lord, please continue to bless the marketplace in our city so that it will reflect Your glory and benefit the people living in it.  Lord, show me what I can do to help improve the economy of our city.

 

Father, forgive our business leaders for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your leadership for their business.  Forgive those who do not trust in You but lean to their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not been faithful in giving through tithes and offerings.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for the community they live in.  Forgive me for not supporting those businesses You have established in my community.  Remind the entrepreneurs and business owners in our city to be forgiving; and help them to forgive.

 

Lead them not into temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Lord, You sit above the circle of the earth.  The people below seem like grasshoppers to You. You spread out the heavens like a curtain and made Your tents from them.  You judge the great people of the world and bring them all to nothing.  You are the I AM that I AM.   In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer about Materialism

A Prayer about Materialism

 

Scripture Reading

I Chronicles 16, Matthew 6:19-34

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Jesus said, “A person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”  Luke 12:21 (NLT)

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Heavenly Father, Your Name is to be honored.  Lord, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth.   You have set Your glory above the heavens.  Lord, You are a great and greatly to be praised.  Your greatness is unsearchable.  Today, we lift our voices towards heaven and offer praises to Your Most Holy Name.  We thank You for Your marvelous works and Your loving kindness and tender mercies toward us.  Thank You for providing us with employment and blessing us with homes, cars, and “things.”  Lord, You are good.  Your mercy endures forever.

 

Father, it is Your will that we do not lay up material treasures on earth for ourselves, where moth and rust can destroy and where thieves can break in and steal; but lay up treasures in heaven for ourselves, where neither moth nor rust can destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal.  Your word states that our lives do not consist in the abundance of the things we possess: therefore, we will beware of covetousness.  The one who lays up treasure for himself is not rich towards You.  Where our treasure is, there our heart will be also.  Lord, we confess that life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.  Therefore, we declare that we, as a church body, will seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness and all things will be added to us.  Lord, we confess that we will not trust in uncertain riches but we will trust in You, the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.  We confess that we will be a church that will continue to do good works and we will be ready to give and be willing to share.

 

What “material things” are controlling your life?  List them and ask the Holy Spirit to help you release control and let them go, so that God’s perfect will is done in your life:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Father, please help us to spend wisely and not excessively.  Please break the bondage of conspicuous consumption over our nation.  Help us to be better stewards of the resources You have blessed us with.  Holy Spirit, please help us to be more disciplined with our lifestyles.  Father, help us to learn to be content with what we have instead of always wanting more.  Help those who are in financial trouble.  Many need a miracle in their finances and we ask for Your intervention.

 

Father, please forgive us for greed, selfish ambition, idolatry, conceit and arrogance.  Forgive us for loving things and placing them over You.  Forgive us for not being good stewards of Your blessings.  As a church, we renounce any gods of materialism.  Lord, remind us of those we need to forgive; and help us to forgive.

 

Lead us not into temptation; but, deliver us from the evil one.

 

Lord, You are the Almighty God, the One who is and who was and who is to come.  You have taken Your great power and reigned.  Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty.  Just and true are Your ways, O king of the saints.  Who will not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?  For You alone are holy.  All the nations will come and worship before You; for Your judgments are manifested.  For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 

Scripture References for the written text:  Matthew 6:9, Psalm 8:1, Psalm 136:1, Matthew 6:19-20, Luke 12:15, Luke 12:21, Matthew 6:21, Luke 12:23, Matthew 6:33, I Timothy 6:17-19, II Timothy 3:16-17, Ephesians 6:13-17, Galatians 5:16, Matthew 6:13, Revelation 11:17, Revelation 15:3-4
