A Prayer to Pray When Struggling with Finances
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
I need finances right now, so I’m crying out to you. I need income to pay my bills, buy food, pay debts, and for the other things I need. I’m asking you, Lord, to provide and take care of me.
Also, help me redirect my thoughts from focusing on my current financial issues to you. I know if I look at the circumstances, I could get overwhelmed, anxious, and feel despair; so, I’m looking to you, Lord, the Waymaker, and my provider.
I trust you, Lord, with my life and with my finances. Help me to put my complete trust in you. From Psalm 28:7, you are my strength and my shield; in you my heart trusts, and I am helped. Give me a heart for you Lord. I don’t want to be a lover of money. I know I can’t love money and love you at the same time. So, help me keep my priority of loving you first above everything else. Help me to be content and have a grateful heart. Forgive me for any carelessness on my part when it comes to spending. Help me to be wise with the funds I have, and give me wisdom when it comes to budgeting, paying off debt, and my spending habits.
Lord, I can face this financial crisis in my life with your help and strength. As the scripture, Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.” Give me strength and meet my needs! Thank you, God, for hearing and answering my prayer.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
