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,
