Dear Lord, we live in a world where honesty and integrity is severely lacking, but I want to be a wise steward of all I have, honest in all my dealings with those I come in contact - and to give of my best to my employer, when it comes to money matters.
Keep me Lord from having a grasping attitude but rather may I develop a generosity, combined with wisdom that only comes from You and help me to spend whatever money I have in a manner that is pleasing to You,
Dear heavenly Father, we are living in troublous times and things are getting more and more difficult for me and my family financially. Lord at times - as I extrapolate into the future, I am filled with fear of what is happening in the world today. Lord I also know that as Your children, You have not given us the Spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Father I know this is true in my heart and yet in my experience I so often allow all the fear of my own financial difficulties to flood my heart.
Help me Lord to take every fearful thought into captivity and to give it to You, for You have promised to carry all our burdens and to supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. Help me not to try in my own strength to sort our my failing finances, but to rely on You and to trust in Your never-failing promises.
Lord I an only one of many of Your children who are facing severe financial hardship, and at times I wonder how You can possibly supply everything we all need in a world that seems to have gone out of control – a world that seems to be grinding everyone down into the ground – but I trust You and lay my needs at Your feet. I pray that in Your Own way and Your Own time You supply my needs – and that You would give me the strength to simply trust in You and to lay all my financial burdens at Your feet, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Father God - in a world of uncertainty and pain, help me to keep looking to You for my needs, knowing that You are our “Jehovah Jirah”, the Lord, Our Provider. You are the one Who fed the Israelites in the wilderness with manna and quail and You were the one Who satisfied the multitude with 5 barley loaves and two small fishes – and I trust in You Lord, to supply all my need and those of my family, for You are a faithful and caring God.
You have forgiven me of my sins and given me eternal life and my eternal cup of blessings truly runneth over and I thank and praise Your name for Your great abundance and provision.
And so Lord in this world of uncertainty and pain, I look to You for all my needs knowing that You are my “Jehovah Jirah”, my Lord and my Provider, in Jesus name I pray,
Dear Lord, there are so many around the world today who are in great need, many who do not have the money to pay for the basic necessities of life and times are getting increasingly hard. Lord there are many who are without food – and many without work or the opportunity to earn enough to supply for the needs of their families – and there are others who are ill or unable to work and are suffering severe lack.
Lord we come to You and ask for Your pity and providence to be pour out on all who are suffering such hardships today. You have promised to supply the needs of Your children and we ask that in Your mercy and loving-kindness You would meet the needs of all those that suffer lack today.
Thank You that You are a God Whose property is always to have mercy and we ask You to fulfil now oh Lord the desires and petitions of all Your people, who are in such need, according to Your mercy, and give them the grace to persevere under such difficult circumstances, in Jesus name we pray,
Dear God, I have been finding that the taxes that we are being required to pay are becoming a real drain on my very meagre income. I also find it very difficult to work out the paperwork when the taxes are due. And so I am coming to You, Lord, to ask You to guide me and to help me, for I have no help but You.
Help me to fill in the paperwork Lord, in the future – because it is something that causes me great distress. I know that it is not Your will that any of Your children worry over such matters – please help not to fret over my taxes but leave them with You.
Lord God, You have promised to help those in need and have told us to lay ALL our burdens at Your feet. That is what I am doing now and I ask this in Jesus name,
Thank You God…
Dear Lord Jesus, I bring my aching heart to You and especially my need to support and provide for my children. Lord as the economy seems to be increasingly fragile and so many people are finding themselves in great financial difficulties, I ask that in Your grace You would look down in pity on me and my children and supply all that we need.
I think of the widow, whose pot of meal was never empty and the little cruise of oil did not run dry and I know that You are a God Who provides in so many different ways for each of Your children.
I pray that whatever way You choose – that my daily needs and those of my children will be provided by You. Lord I know that You have said that before they call I will answer, and You already know my need for today – and so I am trusting You to provide what we need today – and though it may not be by giving me a little cruise of oil that never runs dry, I pray for Your provision today for all we need, and thank You that You have heard my cry, in Jesus name I pray,
Loving Lord Your Word says that we should be good stewards of all that we have been given – and I know that includes the way we manage our money and finances too.
Lord I dearly want to be a careful steward of all that You have given me – for I know that everything I have comes from You and I want to be wise with the money that You have entrusted to me.
Give me wisdom in the way that I spend my money, honesty in the way that I make my money and discernment to prevent me from making unwise choices, especially in the area of giving and spending.
Thank You Lord – I acknowledge that all things come from You and I thank You for Your day by day provision.
Dear Lord Jesus, You said in Your word that if anyone needed wisdom they were to ask You and You give it freely to all who ask – I come to You today to ask for wisdom, especially in my dealings with money and finances.
Lord I do not have a lot of money or savings, but I have always had sufficient, for which I praise Your name – however the price of all the necessities of life seem to be rising and I ask You to give me wisdom on how to spend my money wisely.
Lord I know that however much or however little I have in my purse I can always spend it on something – and I think it was Proverbs that says that money is like a wild animal that needs to be tamed.
Give me wisdom Lord to use the money I have wisely – to be generous without being foolish – to be liberal without being imprudent - to give willingly when prompted by You without feeling obliged to give to everyone in need.
Thank You Lord,
