Is money spiritual and worthy enough to pray for? Learn what the Bible says about it and how you can pray for financial stability, employment and prosperity.
A financial sphere is the one most of us struggle with. Often times we cannot get what we want and even what we need for life. These things evoke anxiety and leave many people in depression. But can you pray to God to get your needs met and is He interested in such prayers?
5 ways to pray to God for money:
1. Pray for your daily needs.
Jesus in His famous prayer said:
“Give us this day our daily bread.” (Matthew 6:11)
At the end of the same chapter He continues:
“For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:32-33)
And He actually promises to provide us with what we need for life. So, you can use these Scriptures to build up your faith and come to the Lord in prayer for the money to meet your daily needs.
2. Pray for prosperity.
Prosperity is when you have more than enough. Having enough is good. Your needs are met and you can live. But prosperity is better. God is the God of abundance. It’s His nature. He gives abundantly:
“And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers…” (Deuteronomy 30:9)
Take Him as your source, follow His Word and prosper!
3. Pray to break the debt.
Debt is the curse. You cannot be happy and free, when you know you owe something. That’s not the will of God for His children. You can use this Scripture to pray:
“For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.” (Deuteronomy 15:6)
However, along with it pray for wisdom, because most of the times we are the ones to blame for foolish behavior. We get ourselves into debt through our lusts.
4. Pray for growth.
You can go from glory to glory even in your finances. So, pray to the Lord to give you knowledge and wisdom:
“For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” (Proverbs 8:11)
The best investment is made inside. You grow and your abilities to earn and prosper increase, too.
5. Pray for supernatural provisions.
They say: “Where God guides, He provides!” And that is true. At times we need much more than we can do or have on our own to fulfill the will of God. He opens the doors and provides for us supernaturally to do the impossible.
Jesus multiplied the loaves of bread and fish to feed 5000 people. He has more than enough for those who seek, ask and get ready to do His will.
