My family and I are in desperate need of prayer. We are having a hard time making ends meet each month and most months they don’t. My husband was layed off almost a year ago and still hasn’t found a job, unemployment ran out, I lost my job due to health issues, but thankfully started a new one this week.
Our rent is still not paid for this month and all our services are in jeopardy of getting disconnected. My husband had MS and requires expensive medications and our insurance doesn’t kick in for another month. My husband is so depressed it’s really starting to affect our marriage and his relationship with my boys.
We need a miracle! I would appreciate any prayers that can be offered for my family. Thank you and may god bless you all. Vanessa
Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
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.
A prayer for financial security is something each of us need to say from time to time. As we head to the end of another quarter with the raising of oil prices doubts of job security creep in. We must trust that we are not the worth of our financial gain. Sometimes we are called to do something totally different.
In the last few years the world economy has been crumbling, falling apart and many nations have been affected, some, countries have filed for bankruptcy, while others have seen massive multinational corporations fold over night.
I by this decree do say that I am free of financial insecurity, people, places, play, work, lies, secrets, disabilities, pain, confusion, worry, weakness of body, mind & spirit and eternal death. Please help me to not place my worth in the financial things of this world but in the truth of who you made me to be Amen.
We watch the news, and count the numbers of people affected, and then hear from a close friend they have been terminated because the company closed down literally overnight.
For many Christians, being unemployed is embarrassing. Suddenly, we find ourselves without a job. We are, perhaps without success, seeking employment
If you, or someone you know finds themselves in this difficult and unfortunate situation right now, be encouraged, and remember that no matter how awful a time you are having trying to be gainfully employed, and feel that you are knocking on all the wrong doors, always remember that you are never alone, and that the journey you are on, is the same journey someone else is taking, most often than not, alone, and without the Lord.
