A Prayer for Financial Stability

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 84:1-5, Genesis 41:28-37

 

Reflections of the Heart:

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” ~ Luke 16:13

 

Scriptural Prayer:

Beloved Father, thank You for being our Great Provider. Thank you for jobs, businesses, and income. Thank You for all of the blessings that Your favor has afforded us. Let us live forever in Your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of Your wings! For You have heard our vows, O God. You have given us an inheritance reserved for those who fear Your Name. May we remain under Your protection forever. May Your unfailing love and faithfulness watch over us. Then we will sing praises to Your Name forever as we fulfill our vows each day.

Lord, we, the Body of Christ, declare that the earth is Yours, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to You. In light of this truth, we declare that we will not rely on the government or anyone else to help us to become financially stable. We will trust in You with all our hearts and we will not depend on our own understanding. We will seek Your will in all we do, and we know that You will show us which path to take. We will not place the welfare of our families at risk by making hasty or unwise financial decisions. As ambassadors of Your Kingdom, we take authority over debt, greed, and reckless spending in all forms. In Jesus’ Name, we rebuke the spirit of poverty, and we command that all that God has entitled us to have is released back into our possession right now! We decree that we will not love money, but we will be satisfied with what we have, for Father, You promised that You will never fail us and You will never abandon us. We will no longer be in fear about our financial future, but we will submit to the guidance of the Holy Spirit who understands all things pertaining to life.

Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what areas of financial stewardship you and your family need to improve so that you can become more financially stable:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, help us to act responsibly in the way we handle our money. Remind us to put God first in everything we do. Give us a strong conviction to never withhold our tithes and offerings and to be generous toward others. Lord, teach us to be cheerful givers, for You promised that if we sow sparingly, we will also reap sparingly. But if we sow bountifully, we will also reap bountifully. Help those of us who are married to work together, not against one another, and to pray for direction about our family finances. Help all of us to seek out wise counsel to improve our understanding of financial management. Give us patience as we go through the process of correction and restoration. May we learn from our past mistakes and be mindful to leave a faithful path of excellence in stewardship for our children to follow.

Holy Father, forgive us of our many sins, including slothfulness, greed, pride, selfishness, arrogance, and rebelliousness. Forgive us when we carelessly make vows, then break them. Forgive us for conforming to the world’s way of doing things instead of adopting the values of the Kingdom. Forgive those of us who still withhold our tithe from You. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us of all those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help us not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Almighty King, You are greater than we can understand. Your years cannot be counted. Everything comes from You and exists by Your power and is intended for Your glory. All glory to You, Lord, forever! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for Employment in the United States

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 48, Psalm 1

 

Reflections of the Heart:

Sometimes, things happen in life that are beyond our control. It is during these trying times that we can rejoice in the knowledge that our God will never leave us nor forsake us. Our relationship with Him allows us to walk through life’s challenges knowing that through the blood of Christ, we are overcomers. Therefore, cast your cares upon Him for He truly does care for you.

 

Scriptural Prayer:

 

Awesome Father, we thank You for providing employment for us, Your children. Thank You for sustaining those who are in need of a financial breakthrough. Thank You for helping them daily.  Thank You, for being  our source and our supply. Holy and righteous is Your Name.  You are a great God, and a great King above  all other gods. You are our God; and we are the people of our pasture, and the flock under Your care. Lord, You are the Creator of the heavens and the earth. You are our strength and shield, and we trust in You. You help us and our hearts are filled with joy. We burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

 

Holy Father, it is Your will that Your children live healthy, productive, happy, and balanced lives. We confess that as those people who are seeking employment place their trust in You and do good; they will live safely in the land and prosper. They will never let loyalty and kindness leave them. They will tie them around their  necks as a reminder; and write them deep within their hearts. Then they will find favor with both You and men, and they will earn a good reputation. Lord, we declare that they will trust in You with all their hearts; and not depend on their own understanding. They will seek Your will in all that they do, and we believe that  You will show them which path to take. In Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of employment to open for our unemployed. We declare that when they receive employment, they will work as if You are their direct supervisor. They will not talk back or steal, but will show themselves to be entirely trustworthy and good. They will respect authority, walk in integrity and complete a full day’s work for a full day’s pay.

 

If you know someone who is unemployed or who wants new employment, write down their names and insert their names into this prayer:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Righteous Father, help those who are unemployed to prepare for their new job. Send people who will consult with  them  about  how  to  prepare  a  resume  and  how  to  dress  and  prepare  for  an  interview. Remind them that because they trust in You, they will not lack any good thing. Holy Spirit, please help them to not grow discouraged or frustrated, but help them to continue to remain hopeful and expect their breakthrough to come forth. Father, some need a miracle right now. Please help them. Holy Spirit, for those who have a poor work ethic, help them to improve. Erase any negative perception caused by past work experiences. Holy Spirit, help stretch their income until employment is found.

 

Merciful Father, forgive those people who demonstrate a poor work ethic. Forgive them for not being on time, leaving early, and wasting time. Forgive those who have not paid their tithes and offerings (consistently), or spent their money unnecessarily. Forgive those for misusing company property. Forgive those who have operated in arrogance, greed, lust, pride, arrogance, and rebellion. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those people who are seeking employment to forgive and help  them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul  caused  by unforgiveness.) 

 

Holy Spirit, help them not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the nations. Who can be compared to You? Who is Your equal? Lord, You are high above all nations. Your glory is above the heavens. Yours is the Kingdom, power, and glory forever. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A Prayer for People Looking for Employment

Scripture Reading: Psalm 47, Ezekiel 34:25-31

Reflections of the Heart:

God knows exactly what His children stand in need of. His Word is full of promises concerning His provision, protection and care for us. Stand on His promises as you, or those you know, look for employment and expect to receive the manifestation of those promises.

Scriptural Prayer:

Most Excellent Father, thank You for allowing Your children to dwell in the secret place under Your shadow. Thank You for being our refuge and fortress. You are a Mighty God! Thank You for meeting the needs of those who are currently unemployed. Thank You, Lord, for assuring us, as Your children, that our promotion does not come from any earthly source, but it is You alone who judges who will rise and who will fall. We rest and trust in You because this whole earth and those who dwell in it belong to You. With all that we are, we will praise You. We will never forget the good things that You do for us. Glory To Your Holy Name!

Glorious Father, in Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of favor and opportunity for employment to open for our unemployed brothers and sisters! We confess that as they seek Your Kingdom above all else and live righteously, You will give them everything they need. We decree that they will not be idle or lazy, wanting much, but doing little. No! They will be diligent and work hard, and will prosper. We declare that our unemployed will not be worried about anything. Instead, they will pray about everything and trust You to meet their needs. They will remain thankful for all You have done in their lives. Even when they are confronted with rejection or negative reports, they will remain confident that You are for them and they will not be fearful of what people will do to them. We confess that they will continually study Your Word and meditate on it day and night. As they do this, they will prosper and succeed in all that they do. We decree that Your favor will surround them as with a shield when they go for interviews.

If you know someone who is unemployed or who wants new employment, write down their names and insert their names into this prayer:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, help our unemployed friends and family members (speak the names) to prepare themselves and enhance their skills so that they will be ready when opportunities present themselves. Help them to wait patiently on the Lord and trust Him to guide them to the job He has for them. Enlighten the eyes of their understanding to know their strengths and to find creative ways to highlight their resumes and job applications. Touch the hearts of those who are resistant to change and encourage them to look for new career opportunities. Remove fear and anxiety from their lives. Help (speak the names) to resist pride and to be humble and honest with those who will interview them. Show them how to use sound judgment as they weigh their job offers. Continue to supernaturally meet their day-to-day needs as they continue to pursue employment opportunities. When (speak the names) receive their new jobs, remind them to tithe and to honor You with their wealth and with the best part of everything they produce to show their gratitude to God, our Father.

Merciful Father, please forgive those who have not honored You in the workplace during their past employment. Forgive those who believe the world’s report more than Your report about their future. Forgive those for who have not honored You with tithes and offerings consistently. Father God, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are seeking employment to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help those who are seeking employment not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.

Omnipotent Lord, salvation and glory and power belong to You! You are the Lord Almighty who reigns. Summon Your might, O God and display Your power as You have in the past. As Your Name deserves, O God, You will be praised to the ends of the earth. Your strong right hand is filled with victory! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 28: A Prayer Regarding Unpleasant Work Environments

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blessing of employment.  Thank You for Your favor that surrounds Your children like a shield.  Thank You for Your goodness and mercy which follow closely behind us.  Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.  You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do.  You help the fallen and lift those bent beneath their loads.  The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it.  When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.  We bless and praise Your holy Name!

Almighty Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments.  We confess that as they commit their works to You, their plans will succeed. Holy Spirit, we declare that our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments will yield to Your leading and guidance so that they will be empowered to be light in the midst of their dark work environment. They are peacemakers in contentious situations so they will be blessed. Lord, we confess that they will walk uprightly and do what is right so no good thing will be withheld from them. We decree that as employers treat their employees and customers with dignity, fairness and respect; they will be blessed as they endure persecution for doing what is right.

 

Holy Spirit, I will declare the following scriptural blessing for my employer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fill our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments with Your wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for them.  As they perform their assigned tasks, help them to always work as unto You. Holy Spirit, help them to be peacemakers in their work environment and to not participate in any negative conversations or behaviors.  Father, help their supervisors and managers to communicate and write down the mission, vision and job descriptions and make them plain to their employees so that they can implement it.  Help our Church Family members to not grow weary while doing well at their jobs and remind them that they will reap a harvest of blessings if they do not give up.

 

Merciful Father, forgive the employees and employers who work in unpleasant environments for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your guidance and leadership in their work places.  Forgive those who do not trust in You, but lean to their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those employers who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for one another.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need 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 aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Eternal King, You are the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.  You never grow weak or weary.  No one can measure the depths of Your understanding.    In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Most Excellent Father, thank You for allowing Your children to dwell in the secret place under Your shadow. Thank You for being our refuge and fortress. You are a Mighty God! Thank You for meeting the needs of those who are currently unemployed.  Thank You, Lord, for assuring us, as Your children, that our promotion does not come from any earthly source, but it is You alone who judges who will rise and who will fall. We rest and trust in You because this whole earth and those who dwell in it belong to You. With all that we are, we will praise You. We will never forget the good things that You do for us. Glory To Your Holy Name!

 

Glorious Father, in Jesus’ Name, we command the doors of favor and opportunity for employment to open for our unemployed brothers and sisters!   As a Church Family, we confess that as they seek Your Kingdom above all else and live righteously, You will give them everything they need.  We decree that they will not be idle or lazy, wanting much, but doing little. No! They will be diligent and work hard, and will prosper. We declare that our unemployed will not be worried about anything. Instead, they will pray about everything and trust You to meet their needs. They will remain thankful for all You have done in their lives.  Even when they are confronted with rejection or negative reports, they will remain confident that You are for them and they will not be fearful of what people will do to them.  We confess that they will continually study Your Word and meditate on it day and night. As they do this, they will prosper and succeed in all that they do. We decree that Your favor will surround them as with a shield when they go for interviews.

If you know someone who is unemployed or who wants new employment, write down their names and insert their names into this prayer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, help our unemployed friends and family members (speak the names) to prepare themselves and enhance their skills so that they will be ready when opportunities present themselves. Help them to wait patiently on the Lord and trust Him to guide them to the job He has for them. Enlighten the eyes of their understanding to know their strengths and to find creative ways to highlight their resumes and job applications. Touch the hearts of those who are resistant to change and encourage them to look for new career opportunities. Remove fear and anxiety from their lives. Help (speak the names) to resist pride and to be humble and honest with those who will interview them.  Show them how to use sound judgment as they weigh their job offers. Continue to supernaturally meet their day-to-day needs as they continue to pursue employment opportunities. When (speak the names) receive their new jobs, remind them to tithe and to honor You with their wealth and with the best part of everything they produce to show their gratitude to God, our Father.

 

Merciful Father, please forgive those who have not honored You in the workplace during their past employment. Forgive those who believe the world’s report more than Your report about their future.  Forgive those for who have not honored You with tithes and offerings consistently. Father God, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who are seeking employment to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need 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 aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.

 

Holy Spirit, help those who are seeking employment not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Omnipotent Lord, salvation and glory and power belong to You! You are the Lord Almighty who reigns. Summon Your might, O God and display Your power as You have in the past.  As Your Name deserves, O God, You will be praised to the ends of the earth. Your strong right hand is filled with victory!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

October 24: A Prayer Regarding Unpleasant Work Environments

Glorious Father, we thank You for the blessing of employment.  Thank You for Your favor that surrounds Your children like a shield.  Thank You for Your goodness and mercy which follow closely behind us.  Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.  You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do.  You help the fallen and lift those bent beneath their loads.  The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it.  When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.  We bless and praise Your holy Name!

Almighty Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments.  We confess that as they commit their works to You, their plans will succeed. Holy Spirit, we declare that our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments will yield to Your leading and guidance so that they will be empowered to be light in the midst of their dark work environment. They are peacemakers in contentious situations so they will be blessed. Lord, we confess that they will walk uprightly and do what is right so no good thing will be withheld from them. We decree that as employers treat their employees and customers with dignity, fairness and respect; they will be blessed as they endure persecution for doing what is right.

Holy Spirit, I will declare the following scriptural blessing for my employer:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fill our Church Family members who work in unpleasant environments with Your wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power.  Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for them.  As they perform their assigned tasks, help them to always work as unto You. Holy Spirit, help them to be peacemakers in their work environment and to not participate in any negative conversations or behaviors.  Father, help their supervisors and managers to communicate and write down the mission, vision and job descriptions and make them plain to their employees so that they can implement it.  Help our Church Family members to not grow weary while doing well at their jobs and remind them that they will reap a harvest of blessings if they do not give up.

 

Merciful Father, forgive the employees and employers who work in unpleasant environments for all acts of sinfulness.  Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your guidance and leadership in their work places.  Forgive those who do not trust in You, but lean to their own understanding.  Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those employers who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for one another.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need 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 aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

 

Eternal King, You are the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth.  You never grow weak or weary.  No one can measure the depths of Your understanding.    In Jesus’ Name, Amen
