The Bible says quotes Jesus in the Book of Mark:
“But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”(Mark 6:30-24) However, there are times when we do need to ask God for additional help, especially during extreme difficulties. Try this prayer when you need a financial boost:
I come before you today to ask for a financial blessing to improve my life.
My faith keeps me strong, and I know you will provide for me and the people I love.
I do not seek a large sum of money.
I do not trouble you for unneeded comforts or luxury.
I only ask for enough money to relieve my financial woes and ease this stress.
Give me the means to do your work, and spread your Love.
I have so much to give, if only I were allowed the chance.
In your name I pray, Amen
You may also want to consider tithing what you can to the Church or to a charity. Generosity is greatly rewarded, though it must be done smartly too. Reflect on this prayer:
“Dear God, Make me a cheerful giver of all my tithes and offerings. I chose to receive all of Your promises and blessings as I am obedient to Your Word. Help me to remember the poor, knowing that I am lending to You and You will repay. Let me give with an attitude of gratitude and worship. I have nothing without You and I will take nothing out with me–only souls. I love to give! Help me to hear the exact amount and to whom to give of my offerings. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Here is another powerful financial prayer:
Dear God, source of Love and Life who brings abundance to all,
Please bring prosperity to me and my family now.
We ask that these basic needs be filled:
Money to pay our bills,
Income to meet our mortgage (rent),
Enough to feed us healthy food,
And more than enough for health care and wellness.
Beyond the material needs, please uplift our souls.
Inspire our creativity and resourcefulness.
Guide us in improving our lives.
Please help us to hold on to faith
And let us find peace. Amen.

by Melanie Mcroy (Blounts Creek, NC USA)
The day after Christmas my relationship and supporter ended. We were not equally yoked and I will be ok however sad. I have surrendered all to the Lord and feel so much better. I put my faith in a man and not in God. I am a believer and ahamed I turned away. I have seen God work in my life and pray to have him again. My mortgage is due tomorrow ( multiple payments) facing forclosure and no money for the bills due. I pray for a financial miricle for need not greed. Please pray with me for this financial miricle and a response from the many jobs I have applied. This door has closed and I pray God will lead me to financial independance. I trust in the Lord and have my faith in him to somehow see me through. I am so thankful to have him with me to comfort me and guide me. I pray he will see the urgency in my financial needs. As a single parent I am use to struggle but this is bad. I have reduced everything to the minimum and need his financial favor to get back on my feet. I know there are others suffering financially all over and I pray for their financial miricle as well.
