A Prayer of Declaration for Financial Blessings
Psalm 113, II Corinthians 9
Reflections of the Heart:
As tithers, we have no need to worry about our finances. Our God will open the windows of heaven for us. He will pour out blessings so great; we will not have enough room to receive. Try it! Put Him to the test! Malachi 3:10
Heavenly Father, we praise You with all of our hearts; we will tell of all the marvelous things You have done. Your reign is forever. You execute judgment from Your throne. You judge the world with justice and rule the nations with fairness. Lord, You are a shelter for the oppressed and a refuge in times of trouble. We trust in You because we know Your Name; we know that You do not abandon those who search for You. Father, Your righteousness reaches to the highest heavens. You have done wonderful things! Who can compare with You? Thank You for being our provider. Thank You for giving us the power to be successful. Thank You, Father, for being our economic strong tower during these trying financial times.
Father, we declare that we are blessed as a Church Family because we fear You, and delight in obeying Your commands. We believe that Your plans for our finances are good and not for disaster, to give us a future and a hope. As we are willing and obedient, according to Your Word, we expect to eat the good of the land. As a Church Family, we confess that we will not fear the economic forecasts because our trust is in You and because we know that You are for us. We confess that our confidence is in You and not in our jobs, our investments, our bank accounts or ourselves. Every good and perfect gift is from You, the Father of lights, so we say that we will walk by faith and not by sight. As a Church Family, we commit to seeking Your Kingdom above all things and living righteously and we know that You will give us everything we need. We release old mindsets, habits and behavior patterns that have created lack and poverty. We forbid thoughts of failure, defeat and mediocrity to inhabit our minds. We confess that wealth and riches are perpetually in our homes and our righteousness will endure forever. Proverbs 14:23 says that in all labor there is profit, therefore, as we work hard we command profit margins and surplus to increase. We declare that we will continue to give cheerfully to the Kingdom of God because we know that as we do this, You will generously provide for us and we will always have everything we need and have plenty left over to share with others. We commit to teaching our children Your Word about financial prosperity and we declare that they will be mighty on the earth. We decree that our children will become entrepreneurs, heads of corporations and leaders of nations. We command promotions and financial increase to manifest in the lives of every Church Family member, now! Additionally, we command all of the finances for the Kingdom Builders’ Center to come forth, now!
What are God’s promises for your finances? Write those scriptures down and confess them over your life:
Holy Spirit, rescue those who are drowning in financial debt and help us all to manage our finances better. As we receive increases in our finances, help us to remember that abundance comes from You. Please help us to not hoard Your blessings. Your Word says that when we help the poor, we are lending to You and You will repay our generosity. So please remind us to be generous. Holy Spirit, touch the hearts of our Church Family to give to the poor through the Promise of Giving. Help us all to look for opportunities to be a financial blessing to someone else. Father, please surround us with Your favor like a shield as we do business in our public and private lives and continue to open doors of opportunity. Teach us how to love people and use money, rather than loving money and using people.
Father, forgive us for all acts of sin, including idolatry, greed, stinginess, financial idolatry, self-centeredness, arrogance, pride, stubbornness and financial disobedience. Forgive us for expressing words of doubt and unbelief concerning Your promise of financial abundance. Forgive those of us who continue the downward spiral of financial mismanagement. Forgive us for failing to develop financial plans that include debt reduction, savings and investments. Forgive us for living beyond our means and misusing credit cards. Father, forgive those members who do not pay their tithes and help them to get on track and begin to tithe. Forgive me for (list the sins, say them out loud to the Lord). Lord, remind us of those we need to forgive, and help us to be quick to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say out loud, “I forgive name of person(s).”
Help us to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Lord, You made the earth by Your power and preserve it by Your wisdom. With Your own understanding You stretched out the heavens. When You speak in the thunder, the heavens are filled with water. You cause the clouds to rise over the earth, You send the lightning with the rain and release the wind from Your storehouses. In Jesus Name, Amen.
