Loving Lord, I find myself in deep financial debt for the first time in my life. I have tried to be wise with my financial decision throughout my life, but the increase in the cost of basic necessities of life combined with the devaluation of our currency, has put me in a place that I never, ever expected to be.
Nevertheless, this is my situation Lord, and I do not want to bury my head in the sand by pretending that the problem is not there. Help me to face the reality that I do not have sufficient funds to meet my outgoings and guide me Lord, in the decisions that I need to make.
I confess that my heart is heavy and I do not really know which way to turn, but You are my Father and have promised to help time of need. Lord, I am in need now and am coming to You in my helplessness to ask that You will provide what I need to care form my family.
I have no one to turn to except You my Lord, and so I place my life and that of my family into You hands, trusting You to meet our needs as You have promised. I ask this in the name of Jesus, Who is my Saviour,
