A Prayer for Financial Breakthrough
We confess our financial challenges. In a society that lifts money up to such high importance, it’s extremely hard to battle our mind’s eyes each day. Thank You for blessing us with money to spend, and help us to honor You with our choices. Forgive us for mindlessly buying things in the sales and BOGOF. Sometimes, there are things that we never knew we needed until the bright discount sticker catches our eye. Strengthen us in those moments to fight our impulses by yielding to the power of the Holy Spirit within us.
Help us to see our finances through Your eyes. You have a purpose and plan for our lives, and every penny we’re blessed with to manage. Stir our hearts to seek Your wise counsel on everything; from buying dessert to a brand new car. Urge us to seek You in Your Word, and prayerfully consider Jesus’ example on this earth. We confess that we don’t often stop to think about what You want for our wallet, over what we want. When new trends are just a swipe of the credit card away, stir in our hearts to fight temptation.
Whether we seek careers or possessions to heighten our visibility in society, none will ever satisfy or compare to Jesus’ love. Help us to follow Christ in our daily lives. Prayer is life-changing, that You promise us. We lift up the bills that puzzle and scare us to You. Guide us, direct us, and equip us to trust You more and more in the daily direction of our financial lives.
Thank You for providing for us, Father. Just the fact that we are skimming over these words is proof that You’ve provided for another day for us. Bless our finances, and help us to seek You first in everything, each day.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
