How to ask god for financial help

Since everything is possible for God, you can experience miracles in your life when you invite God to intervene – even in situations that seem impossible. But too often, people neglect to ask God for miracles in their lives, and end up settling for far less than God’s best for them. Use these prayers for miracles when you’re ready to ask God to take over. 

You can always approach God with confidence if you trust in His Son, Jesus Christ. So don’t hesitate to pray about anything, including miracles!

1. A Miracle Prayer for the Impossible

Father, I come to you today with faith so small I cannot see a way. I want to believe you are able to do more than I ever imagine. I want to walk by faith and not by sight. God, please bring a miracle into my life. I know that you can do the impossible in my life and I am trusting in your promises. Thank you for being a God who sees and hears my every need. In Jesus’ name, amen. 

2. A Thankful Miracle Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank You for answering my prayers and performing miracles in my life every day. Just the fact that I woke up this morning and can take a breath is a gift from You. Help me to never take my health and loved ones for granted. Help me to always stand in faith and keep my focus on You when unexpected circumstances arise. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Leah DiPascal, Proverbs 31 Ministries

3. A Prayer to Trust When You Need a Miracle

“Dear God, thank you that you love me and want to keep me from depending on other things instead of you. Forgive me for when I’ve depended on my job and other people instead of you. Thank you that you haven’t forgotten me. Lord, the days ahead may be a little scary at times, but I understand now that the path to a miracle is through uncomfortable territory. I understand now that the source of a miracle will be unexpected, so I shouldn’t try to figure it out. I should just trust you. When you tell me what to do, and it doesn’t always make sense, I will still do what you want me to do. Help me to remember that you’re all I need and that where you guide, you’ll provide. I want to learn to trust you one day at a time. I want to go your way, not my way. I want to follow you, and I ask you to save me and come into my life. I claim your promise that if I trust you, you’ll meet my needs. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.” ~ Rick Warren

How to Pray and Ask God for a Miracle:

Forget formulas and simply seek God’s presence. There are no magical formulas to use to conjure up miracles. Instead, miracles happen whenever you welcome God’s powerful presence into the situations you face. So don’t worry about trying to pray perfect prayers to convince God to do something miraculous in your life. Simply invite God to work in every situation in which you’re seeking miracles, and trust Him to do what’s best after you ask Him to intervene.

Consider what may be blocking miracles from happening in your life. Sometimes the particular miracle you’re seeking isn’t God’s will, sometimes spiritual warfare is occurring in your life and evil is blocking a miracle from happening, sometimes you have sin in your life (such as bitterness) that is preventing a miracle from taking place, and sometimes you don’t have enough faith to believe that God can really perform the miracle you’re hoping for. Pray about each of these potential blockages, and then relax, trusting that God has the situation covered and will answer your prayers with what’s best.

View miracles as expressions of how much God loves you. Recognize that every time God does choose to perform a miracle in your life, He is showing you His love for you in a tangible way. Be sure to thank God for His love whenever you experience a miracle.

Ask God to guide you to the truth about His will. If you’re not sure whether or not it’s God’s will to perform a particular miracle in your life, ask Him to make His will clear to you and tell Him that you want His will – not your own will – to be done.

Ask God to help your unbelief. Confess your doubts and lack of faith to God and ask Him to meet you where you are spiritually to help you believe that He is able to do what He says He will do in your life.

Obey God’s command to forgive so your prayers won’t be hindered. If you’re unwilling to forgive someone who has hurt or offended you, that refusal to forgive can hinder your prayers from being answered, because God sometimes waits until you obey His commands before answering prayers. Remember how much God has forgiven you for, and let that motivate you to obey His call to forgive others. Ask God to help you forgive; you can choose to forgive even when you don’t feel like it and rely on the strength God will give you during the forgiveness process.

Fight evil through spiritual warfare. If evil in the spiritual realm is hindering miracles from happening in your life, pray breakthrough prayers against evil to clear the way for more miracles to occur in your life. Start by confessing your sins that come to mind, and then repent of each one specifically. Next, ask (in Jesus’ name and through the power of His blood) for the Holy Spirit to help you and the people you’re praying for be victorious over all evil attacks. Ask God to protect you and those you’re praying for from future attacks by evil. Pray for any bondages that you (or the people you’re praying for) are under to be broken so you and they can experience the freedom God intends. As you’re praying, mention each issue specifically – from unhealthy addictions (such as to alcohol or pornography) and personal struggles (with jealousy, greed, gossip, lying, anger, anxiety, or any other issues) to negative words that others may have spoken over you and any involvement you may have had with ungodly spiritual forces (such as through the occult). Then ask God to bless you and those you’re praying for in the name of Jesus.

Praise God more through worship. You can experience more miracles when you spend more time praising God in worship, because worship ushers God’s power into your life in fresh ways and helps you discern His voice more clearly as He leads you toward miracles. Make a habit of praising God for who He is, during both good and bad times in your life.

Live a life that’s completely devoted to God. When you devote yourself to God completely – in every area of your life – you’ll notice more miracles happening in your life. Seek God’s guidance before making any major decision, and ask the Holy Spirit to change your own desires to reflect God’s desires for you. Live for God (rather than for yourself), and be willing to say “yes” whenever God calls you to help people in need.

Take the steps that God shows you. As you seek God’s will for your life, sometimes God will give you clear signs to follow, and sometimes He will simply give you a sense of peace. Humbly pray for wisdom every day and step out in faith whenever God shows you a way in which he wants you to put your faith into action. In the process, miracles can happen.

Don’t give up until God answers your prayers. Since God’s timing (which is perfect) often takes longer than the immediate results that human beings like to see, many people give up praying for miracles when they don’t see answers to their prayers right away. But God will always answer your prayers with either a “yes” or a “no” that’s clear; you just need to patiently wait until the right time for the answer to come. In the meantime, never give up praying and trusting God to do what’s best.

We’ve all been there. The moment where you cross your fingers and pray that the bills won’t bounce. Perhaps you’ve been faced with unemployment and you have no earthly idea how you’ll be able to make next month’s rent payment. Or maybe you’re working two jobs and still can’t seem to get ahead. Financial issues can be extremely stressful and effect so many different aspects of life – both physically and emotionally.

In order to gain better control over your finances, it may be wise to consult a financial advisor who has a better idea of how to manage funds and what type of options are accessible for your specific situation. While you may believe that you have it under control and perceive no other workable solutions, getting a second opinion on your financial situation can prove to make an extreme difference. Along with professional help, it’s important to maintain your sanity with spiritual assistance. You’ll discover a financial expert’s assistance coupled with prayer will provide you with the hope and motivation you will need to overcome just about anything.

The Bible provides Christians with a number of scriptures focused on money, finances and giving. Philippians 4:19 is one of my go-to scriptures to reference when I’m facing financial issues. The verse says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” It’s important, despite the frustrations tough finances brings forth, to know that the Lord is always by your side. He will never give you more than you can manage and will provide the necessities to live a prosperous life. First, place your faith in the Lord and he’ll do the rest.

“Dear Lord, help me to leave my financial worries in Your Hands. Guide me to peace so that I can hear your wisdom. Keep me mindful of my blessings no matter how much or little I may have. Grant me the patience and tolerance necessary to calm my spirit knowing that you have everything under control. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Patience is a virtue that is required within so many elements of life – finances being one of those main elements. From time-to-time God’s children become so bogged down with the endless list of demands our life brings forward. The Lord understands your frustrations and sees firsthand how much work you’re putting in each day. Chin up friend – ask the Lord to grant you the necessary patience to get through this difficult financial period. While it may seem overwhelming, while you’re in the moment, remember that the Lord will always provide you with the resources you’ll need.

And then there are times when we feel need a financial miracle – car breaks down unexpectedly, death in the family, water heater explodes, or an illness. For those times a prayer that asks the Lord Jesus Christ for a miracle is exactly what is needed.

“O Lord, You placed the stars in the sky. You created a myriad of beautiful life. You gave us our breathe and water to drink.

You are a living Lord. You are my Savior, in whom I trust. Please rescue me from this financial crisis, Come redeem this situation. I ask for your almighty hand to come and cover me.

Give me wisdom and strength to stand strong through this storm. I ask for a miracle by your redeeming love. Please restore me, lead me to a safe place, a secure place, a place of financial balance. In you I trust. Amen.”

Jesus Christ, who is your Lord and Savior, understands better than anyone the spontaneity in life – and moreover, how those unexpected times can bring on financial burdens. If you’re going through a difficult time, ask the Lord for a miracle through prayer. A prayer for financial help from God can be a definite game changer and provide you with the resources that you need to get out of the hole. The world is filled with an insurmountable amount of solutions; however, identifying those answers can prove to be very challenging. Through prayer, ask the Lord to give you guidance coupled with the patience you’ll need to discover the financial solution you desperately need. In many cases, you’ll discover a solution that is seemingly been in front of you the entire time. In addition, this difficult financial time could also lead you to wisdom that you would have ordinarily been blind to.

Lastly, one of the strongest messages spiritual messages comes from Matthew. These words redefine the true meaning behind necessity and desire. Often times, we as human beings, become obsessed with the materialistic aspects of things. Sometimes objects appear to be a necessity however, in fact, these items are not a vital aspect of survival.

In this day and age where everyone is blindly chasing after money and trying their level best to remain a relevant part of today’s twenty first century business world, being able to forge a meaningful relationship or friendship with everyone is certainly becoming a tough thing to do indeed.

In the event of being in some kind of financial trouble and needing some help to make two ends meet, there is no harm or shame in asking your friend for some financial help.

A true friend is someone who will always be there; ready to bail you out of all trouble no matter what.

17 Tips for Asking Funding Assistance from Friends:

1. It is better to ask a friend than to ask a stranger:

In the event of needing money, rather desperately it is always better to borrow money from a friend rather than an unknown person who can take legal action against you in the event of your being unable to pay back the sum on the stipulated date.

This having been said it certainly does not imply that you can take it easy when paying the money back to your friend; rather it means that your true friend knows that you will not take him or a ride or swindle him that is why he will be more lenient with you.

So keeping this in mind, you should go right ahead and ask your friend.

2. Think about how much you will ask for:

Prior to approaching your friend and asking him to lend you the money it is advisable that you spend some moneys alone, in contemplation with yourself thinking about how much money you will actually be needing.

People need to borrow money for a number of reasons when they find that they are being unable to make two ends meet. At some point of time or the other everyone goes through a rough patch so you need not let this get to you in any way.

So, ensure that you know exactly what it is that you are going to say to your friend before approaching him.

3. Ensure that he is not someone to keep bringing it up:

Before you ask your friend for the money ensure that he or she isn’t someone who is going to keep bringing the matter up even once you have returned the sum of money. There are some people who do good and remain extremely quiet about it and such unobtrusive and altruistic people are truly selfless human beings, yet on the other end of the spectrum there are those individuals who do good simply because they want to show to the outside world how seemingly generous as well as philanthropic they are. So ensure that you do not borrow from the latter kind of people.

4. Do you think it will affect you friendship:

In the event of asking your friend for money you should ensure that you give enough thought to the matter.

Do you think that you borrowing money will make things awkward as well as weird between the two of you?

In the event of taking too long to pay the sum back, will you relationship grows sour?

Are you prepared for something like this to happen?

These are some pointed questions which most certainly need to be addressed before you go about asking your money for any kind of monetary help. So do give it adequate thought before making your move.

5. Ensure that this does not become a recurrent thing:

In the event of being indeed your friend is going to do everything in his power to help as well as assist you, however, if you keep asking him or her for money, chances are that in the future he will try and avoid you like the plague.

So when you are asking your friend for financial help ensure that you mention that this is most certainly a one time things and as soon as you are able to get things back on track you will return the money and be eternally grateful to him or her for helping you at a time when many had turned their backs on you in your hour of need.

6. Do not press upon your friend too much:

Asking your friend for a little financial help when you are going through a rough time with loan payments, children’s school fees as well as miscellaneous expenditure is no big deal at all.

Remember that you cannot force him to give you the money and neither is he obligated to give you the sum if he doesn’t want to.

So when you are asking him for monetary or financial help be sure you do not force him to give you the money against his will.

7. Remain friends even if he or she refuses to help you:

In the event of him refusing to give you the money you should not break off all ties with him. In this day and age everyone finds it hard to make two ends meet so you cannot impose on anyone in such a way.

So you should make it a point to mention to him as well that if he is unwilling to give you the money as well, it will certainly not make any difference at all to the friendship which you have and the equation which you two share.

Friendship is an extremely beautiful bond and you should never let something as paltry as money come in-between and ruin things.

8. Ask in a very polite manner not in a demanding tone:

When you are asking your friend for financial help be sure to ask for it in an appropriate manner so that at no point in time does it seem like you are being demanding or even overbearing.

Rather than asking your friend over the phone or via a text message you should make it a point to ask the question face to face as that is certainly much more personal. In addition to this if you ask your friend face to face chances are that he will not be able to come up with an excuse which he might have otherwise thought of if you were to have asked him over the phone.

9. Explain your current situation to you friend:

Simply asking for the money without giving an explanation at all might be a little awkward, so instead of doing this you should tell you friend exactly what situation you are in.

Though this having been said it is completely up to you as to whether or not you would like to divulge intimate details of your personal life.

A real friend, who is in a position to give you money, will certainly give it to you without asking any questions.

10. Tell him that you would like it if he didn’t broadcast the news:

You should make it a point to mention to your friend that the only reason why you are asking him or her for money is because you know that he or is trustworthy and will not go about broadcasting the news to any and everyone.

In order to avoid any problems at a future point in time it is better to tell your friend at the very onset that borrowing this money is not easy for you at all and in the event of news getting out you will end up feeling really small as well as embarrassed.

Though it may seem awkward to mention this, in the first place, make it a point to do so.

11. Promise your friend that you will return the sum back:

State in no uncertain terms that you are merely asking for a loan of sorts and you will most certainly return the sum back as soon as you can.

Mentioning such tiny things might not seem very important, but when your friend hears such words of consolation he will feel a lot better knowing that he will see his money again in due course.

One of the best things about borrowing money from a true friend is that there are no strings attached and that you will not have to pay interest.

12. Ask him when he or she would like the money returned:

You must make it a point to ask your friend, when exactly he will need his money back and whether or not he is in a hurry to get it back. Whether or not he is in a hurry for it back or not, you should make it a point to try your level best to return the sum as soon as you possibly can. It is never a good idea to remain in debt for too long as this is something which makes relationships grow sour.

Even though your friend might not mind giving you the money if you take too long he might think that you are taking advantage of his goodness and not being honest in your dealings.

13. If possible ask if you can pay it back in installments:

If you think that you will not be able to pay back the sum at one go, you can ask your friend if you can pay the money back in installments. Chances are that as long as you are returning the money your friend will not have a problem with your method of doing so, but it is always better to make inquiries right at the very onset so you are at the receiving end of no accusations later on.

14. Ensure that you do not beat around the bush:

When asking your friend for money, beating around the bush is certainly not going to get you anywhere at all as chances are that if you are too ambiguous he or she might not even understand what it is that you are actually saying.

15. Do not ask your friend for financial help in front if a big group:

You must ensure that in no point in time do you ask your friend for any kind of monetary help in the front of a group as this will most certainly turn out to be an awkward situation for all the people concerned. Ensure that you do so privately.

16. Do not borrow too much unnecessarily:

In the event of knowing that your friend will give you any amount which you quote, you must ensure that you too not ask for an unnecessarily large sum of money which you know that you will not be able to pay back easily no matter how much time goes by.

17. Give him adequate time to think about it:

Last but certainly not the least is that you should not just pop the question suddenly to your friend and expect him to give you an answer or even the money on the spot. The correct thing to do would be to give him some time to think about it himself or even consult his family members.

So these are some of the ways in which you can go about asking a friend of yours for financial help. If your friend sees that you are in genuine trouble and have no way out then he or she is sure to make it a point to help you in your time of need.

However this certainly does not imply that you take advantage of the love your friend has for you and begin to constantly have your arms stretched forth for alms.

Finally, you should always make it a point to pay the money back so that at a later point in time if relationships grow sour, you do not have to worry about being talked about.

Three Parts:Confessing Your SinAsking for ForgivenessMoving ForwardCommunity Q&A

Asking God to forgive your sins is an important process. It is important that you admit what you did wrong and truly feel sorry that you did it. You must come to God, pray using scripture, and ask Him to forgive you. Then you must believe that he has. After you are forgiven, work on leaving sin behind and living a new life.

Part 1 Confessing Your Sin

  1. how to ask god for financial help Name and admit the thing you’ve done.

    Before asking forgiveness, you must specifically state the thing you did wrong and admit that you did it. If you’re feeling guilty, you may be tempted to make excuses or deny that you did anything wrong. Forgiveness is impossible if you don’t admit you did something wrong.

    • You may think, “I guess maybe I shouldn’t have lied, but I had a really good reason and it was a small lie.” You are trying to justify what you did rather than admitting to it.
    • Begin by praying, “Father, I took $5 from my brother without asking him for it.” You have named the sin (stealing) and you have taken the responsibility for it without making an excuse.
  2. how to ask god for financial help Tell God that you know what you did was wrong.

    Once you have named what you did, it’s important to recognize that it was wrong. It’s possible to say what you’ve done but to not believe that you were wrong to do it. Admitting you did it is pointless if you do not admit that you know it was wrong.

    • You will not receive forgiveness if you say, “I’ve been sleeping with my co-worker even though I’m married, but I don’t see anything wrong with it.” You must recognize what you did as sin, as something God is unhappy about.
  3. how to ask god for financial help Say that you are sorry for what you did.

    It is still not enough to say what you did and admit that it was wrong. Now you must apologize for it. Feel sincerely sorry for the wrong, and let that regret come through in what you say to God. It’s important that you are actually remorseful when you say you are sorry.

    • Asking forgiveness from God is not like when you say sorry to a brother but you really don’t mean it. It must be sincerely from your heart.
    • Say something like, “I know that what I did was wrong, and I feel truly bad for it. I’m sorry that I broke our relationship. I’m sorry for sinning against you.”

Part 2 Asking for Forgiveness

  1. how to ask god for financial help Pray about what you’re feeling.

    You must always be honest when you are asking for forgiveness. If you believe that God knows your heart anyway, there is no sense in lying to him. Tell him the guilt you feel for your sin, and that being separated from him has made you sad.

    • Say, “God, I feel sick to my stomach because I know I have caused you pain.”
    • It can be good to pray aloud to God so that you are saying specifically what is on your mind as opposed to only thinking it.
  2. how to ask god for financial help Use scripture in your prayer.

    God’s word is powerful, and he encourages you to use it when you speak to him. Since the words in the Bible come from God, they show a model for how to talk to God. Search your Bible, or online, to find scriptures about asking for forgiveness. Use those to make your prayer meaningful.

    • Look these scriptures up and pray them in your prayer: Romans 6:23, John 3:16, 1 John 2:2. These scriptures talk about forgiveness. The New Testament is full of truth about forgiveness.
    • Search on your own and find scriptures that speak to you about the forgiveness you’re seeking. You can repeat the scripture verbatim or paraphrase it so it means more to you.
  3. how to ask god for financial help Ask God to forgive you for what you’ve done.

    Just as you would with other people, after saying you are sorry you must ask to be forgiven. There is no special prayer you have to pray to earn forgiveness from God. All you have to do is ask him to forgive you, through Jesus Christ, and believe that he will forgive you.

    • Say to God, “I denied knowing you to my friend. It was wrong and cowardly for me to do that. I’m sorry I didn’t tell him about your love for us. Please forgive me for my weakness in that moment.”
    • You do not need to plead, beg, or repeat yourself over and over. Asking God one time, with a genuine heart, is all you have to do.
  4. how to ask god for financial help Tell God that you believe He has forgiven you.

    Belief and forgiveness go hand in hand. It’s no good to ask for forgiveness but not believe God will forgive you. God says that when you ask him to forgive you with sincere hearts that is He is faithful to forgive. Tell yourself you believe Him and tell God you believe Him.

    • 1 John 1:9 tells you that, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Say this scripture to God and believe it.
    • It’s important to remember that forgiven sins are forgotten. Hebrews 8:12 says, “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

Part 3 Moving Forward

  1. how to ask god for financial help Seek forgiveness from people you hurt by what you did.

    Although sin ultimately breaks relationship with God, other people are often hurt, too. When you know that God has forgiven you, it’s important to seek forgiveness from others. Tell the person you are sorry you hurt them and ask them to forgive you.

    • Remember that you can’t make someone forgive you, and you can’t earn it from them. They will either accept that you are sorry for what you did and forgive you, or they won’t. Don’t pester them if they refuse to forgive. You can’t make them change.
    • Once you have apologized and asked for someone’s forgiveness, you must release yourself from the guilt. Even if they don’t forgive you, you’ve done your part in seeking to make amends.
  2. how to ask god for financial help Repent of the wrong behavior.

    Once you are forgiven by God for your sin and by others for any hurt you caused, you must turn away from that sin. Make a conscious decision that you will not purposefully commit the same sin again after being forgiven.

    • You must remember that you will always sin again, but it’s important to say in the moment that you are turning away. The only way to get further from habitual sin is to tell yourself you are not going to do it again.
    • Acts 2:38 is helpful in this process. It says, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
    • Forgiveness is an important step, but walking away from sin is necessary, too, to remain close to God.
  3. how to ask god for financial help Work to keep from doing the same wrong thing again.

    Part of your goal in following Christ is to move further from sin, and this takes committed work. You won’t stop sinning immediately, but if you work on it, you will grow stronger. In Matthew 5:48, God calls you to become perfect, as he is perfect. It’s a goal that you must work toward.

    • Find people who can help you avoid repeated sins. Learn scripture to combat temptation. Remember that sin only harms and you don’t need it.
    • Spending time reading your Bible, praying to God, and talking with other Christians are all vitally important to living a life that is free of sin.

  • Should I ask forgiveness from the person I’ve wronged before I ask God for forgiveness?

  • Do I have to feel guilty if I broke somebody’s heart by dating his friend instead of him?

    TreeofHolz

    No. Some may say it is ‘natural’ to feel guilty when we cause someone else pain; this is called empathy or sympathy, depending on your feelings. However, continuing to feel guilty for a choice you made can actually do more harm. You made a choice that was right for yourself, and you shouldn’t apologize or feel bad about that. In the future, be upfront and honest with anyone who may have such feelings for you as to not lead them on.

  • Can God forgive me for sleeping with my cousin and lying to my mom?

    wikiHow Contributor

    Yes, if you ask for forgiveness from your cousin and your mom, then ask God for forgiveness and be sincere in all three.
