Spiritural Prayer for Your Finances #2

These scripture prayers are for Sound Living with your finances.

Eternal priorities. Lord, I choose not to set my heart on the world and its passing desires, especially _________________(list the worldly things that lure you). I will love You above all by seeking first Your kingdom and Your righteousness (1 Jn. 2:15-17; Mt. 6:33).

Stewardship. I relinquish my owner mentality, that I might faithfully manage what You have entrusted to me, remembering always that I am accountable to You for its use (Mt. 25:14-30;
1 Cor. 4:2).

Work ethic. Lord, I commit now to work with all my heart, not to win the favor of men, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for You. It is You that I am serving (Col. 3:22-24).

Provision for family. I will not neglect my family. As I work faithfully, grant me the means to supply what they need (1 Tim. 5:8).

Borrowing. Lord, thank You for providing through Your Spirit the fruit of self-control. I choose to delay buying what I don't need until You supply the money. I commit to freeing myself from all outstanding debts except the continuing debt of love (Gal. 5:22-23; Prov. 22:7; Ro. 13:8).

Honesty. Lord, I refuse to pursue any form of dishonest gain, because ill-gotten treasures are ultimately of no value. I especially need help with ___________(tell Him about any current temptations). (Ex. 20:15; Prov. 10:2; Ro. 13:6-7).

Patience. I need wisdom, God, to resist the lure of get-rich-quick schemes, which lead to poverty. Provide me with restraint to gather the money I need little by little (Prov. 13:11, 23:4, 28:19-20).
Scriptural Prayers for Your Finances by Brian Smith

I hope these scripture prayers help with what you may be going through. Times are hard for everyone. It seems that all families are being hit with something or multiple things. Whether it is finances, family things (such as parents fighting, caring for elderly parents, sickness, rebellious teens, juggling home and work), loosing a job or finding enough work to keep your job. WOW, this is alot... and I am sure these are just tip of what some of us are dealing with. I plan to post later some prayers to help with each of these things.
