Lord, I know that that is a principle that is frequently seen in the Bible, that we “reap what we sow,” and I also know that some unscrupulous people have suggested that this can be used as an almost magical formula that anyone can apply to ‘prayer’ which I know to be very unbiblical.
Lord, I want to ask You to give me an understanding of how to sow biblically, so that in due time I may reap to Your glory, whether it is my money, my time, my talents, my gifts or simply myself. Lord, I want to make the best use of all that You have graciously given to me, not for selfish reasons but to glorify Your name, for all that I have comes from You and I am simply seeking to give back to You what You have generously given me. Lord, I simply desire to be a good steward and a faithful servant, with all that You have given me.
Lord, I don’t know how best to use what You have given me. I don’t know how to sow as You would have me to do. I know that I have made many mistakes in the past and so I come to You today to ask You to teach me Lord. Teach me how to number my days and make best use of all that have received from Your hand of blessing, including my money, my time, my talents, my gifts and myself.
Lord, into Your hands I give all I have and pray that in due time it will be profitable. In Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I want to thank You for Your grace and mercy to me and towards all people. Lord, I hesitate to approach You on the subject of wealth, for Lord I know that there is much abuse of wealth, not only in the acquiring and accumulating it, through suspect ways or shady means, but in particular in praying to You for to provide wealth, especially by those who lead people astray - often suggesting the use of a prayer formula, to effectively twist Your arm to provide the prosperity they think they deserve, rather than seeking for You for the provision they really need.
Lord, as I come to You with my request, I pray that You would guide my prayers with wisdom as I pray to You for “wealth.” Lord, I do not mean an obscene amount of wealth, but rather that You would provide me with sufficient means so that I do not become discouraged with my poverty and lack.
Lord, I know that You have promised to provide for the needs all Your children, but I find myself in a situation where I hardly know which way to turn regarding my finances. And the temptation to acquire some money in an ungodly way or by dishonest means is ever before me. Lord, there is a verse in the Bible where someone prays, “Give me neither poverty nor riches.
Lord, I too come before You to ask that You would graciously supply me with sufficient wealth, but also I pray that You would keep me from the greedy attitude that is so prevalent with those who have great abundance.
Lord, in all things I lay myself in humility at You feet, knowing that I am helpless to properly provide for my needs and those of my family. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I pray that You would keep me free from the love of money, and the desire to gain more and more, for I know that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil and help me I pray, to be content with what I have. But Lord, I also beseech You to keep me free from covetousness and from jealousies towards those that are blessed with more worldly wealth.
Father, I do find it difficult not to wish I had more and have found myself on occasions resenting those that are well-off, so develop in me a right spirit towards wealth and material things, and keep me from covetous thoughts and fleshly inclinations. Forgive me for the times that I do succumb to an envious attitude and resentful thinking. I know in my heart that this is wrong.
Lord, I want to develop right thinking towards wealth and money, knowing that those who trust in their riches will inevitably fall. Search me Lord and renew a right spirit within me, and help me to develop a thankful heart for what I do have, knowing that this is well pleasing to You. In Jesus' name,
Father, I know that we are not promised wealth in Your Word, indeed Lord, as I read Scripture it appears that the Bible warns against seeking after wealth and the accumulation of wealth, and abhors all forms of dishonest practices, and yet in this world it seems that we are encouraged to seek after wealth and too often we hear preachers telling us that wealth is a sign of God’s favour, while poverty is a sign of His displeasure.
Keep me Lord, from poverty and help me Lord, to be content with what You have given me and thankful in all situations in which I find myself. Keep me from becoming embroiled in the pursuit of wealth, for I know that I could all to easily be enticed into seeking after wealth at the expense of my spiritual growth.
Father, I want to follow Your call to lay up treasure in heaven and not get swept into the world’s thinking, for I truly believe that unless one is very careful and wise, wealth can become a thorn in the flesh and begin to be a master instead of a servant.
Keep me Lord, with my eyes heavenward, knowing that my future lies in the reward in heaven and not the wealth of this world system. Provide all I need and may I develop an attitude of gratitude for all that You have so graciously provided for me as I sojourn in this world and as I wait for that day when You will call me home to be with You for ever. Thank you in Jesus' name,
Dear Heavenly Father, You have blessed me with much abundance of wealth, and I do thank You for all that You have so graciously provided for me. Lord, I want to thank You with all my heart and ask that give me great wisdom to know how best to use this wealth, that I believe has been entrusted to me from Your gracious hand, and for which I praise and thank You.
Help me not to be selfish in the use of my wealth and also I pray that You would prevent me not to be foolish either, for I believe that this is a resource that can be used for both good and evil. Lord, I pray that You would help me to use this abundance that You have lovingly bestowed on me, wisely and to Your greater glory.
Lord, I know that there are many people who seek out wealthy folk with a wrong intention and I ask that You would give me great discernment with all those whom I meet. Give me wisdom Lord, to use my wealth wisely. In Jesus' name,
