Dear Heavenly Father, we are living in troubling times and things are getting more and more difficult for me and my family financially. Lord, at times, when I think about 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 am 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 will 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,
