Words Of Encouragement
Every single one of us struggles at one time or another with money issues, right? The anxiety that comes from worrying about being able to pay bills or put food on the table is a reality in our world.
It hinders our walk with God pulling us down into very dark places.
Money is the root of evil and materialism in our world. Don’t you wish at times that money never existed?
Are you floundering paycheck to paycheck or drowning in debt?
Credit card companies prey on us like sharks swimming around their next dinner. Once you slide that card for a purchase, it becomes easier to do it again and again. Before you know it, you find yourself so far in debt that you feel hopeless.
You don’t know how you are ever going to pay it off.
God knows your struggles and sin with money. He knows that you are cutting corners so far back that you barely have enough to give your child healthy food or a decent pair of shoes. He hears your deep cries within with despair over your finances.
It’s time to hand it all over to Him. We can’t rely on our own ability to fix our situation because it is so much bigger than us.
Only God can fix this. It’s time to place your trust in Him and let go of the anxiety and worry.
Trust in Him for having enough to feed your family, pay the bills, and, most importantly, to tithe.
We should always strive to give a portion of our earnings to God before anything else. He will bless you if you do this.
Never short-change God. Consider it a joy and a blessing to be able to give a little back to the One who blessed you with the money in the first place.
Are you ready to cast your worries on Him and hand your financial burden over to Him?
Prayer For Finances
I humbly come before thee to ask for your help. My finances are in such a mess, and it has become greater than I.
Father, please forgive me for my debt and for aimlessly spending my money. Forgive me for not giving back a portion of my earnings to you in tithing.
Thank you for helping me to see my situation and realizing that this is not in line with your teachings or your will for my life.
I give you my credit card bills, the bills I cannot afford to pay, the things my family needs that I cannot afford to get, and any other finances I have.
I give you the endless anxiety I have with my financial situation. I give myself to you, Lord.
Help me to find balance both in all areas of my life as well as my finances. Forgive me for failing you, Lord, by putting things of this earth before you.
I trust in you, Father, to help me. I pray in Jesus’ name – amen.
Prayer For my Financial Situation
God, you know every little detail of the financial situation I am in.
Sometimes it can be so stressful and worrisome.
But I know that you are in control.
So I am giving this area of my life completely over to you.
Give me the wisdom to be a good steward of the money you have given me.
Help me to use it to glorify you, for all things are yours.
Help me to focus on storing up treasure in heaven and not on earth.
In Christ’s name,
