A Prayer For When Facing Financial Struggles & Hardship
Jehovah Jireh, Lord God, who provides all my needs according to Your riches in Glory, I come to You as I am struggling today financially.
The rent is due, there is not enough food to last the rest of the month, the loan needs to be covered, the electricity bill’s deadline has gone and even the gas in my car is close to E.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Ecclesiastes 7:14 When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other.
Praying in the midst of the storm
In the midst of this storm, I thank You most gracious one, for I still have food at this point, I still have shelter from the rain and I still have a car to get me to at least one more destination.
I have eternal faith, trust and hope in You, Oh God, because You are going to turn this around for me.
Hebrews 12:7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?
James 1:12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
I have my trust in You, Oh God, because You are going to turn this around for me.
The Lord will make a way
Doubt and fear flees when I call upon Your mighty name. I may not see a way at this point, Oh Lord, my God, but I know You will make a way.
My dawn is drawing near, I can feel the financial breakthrough right around the corner and the blessings are going to rain down upon me. I thank You in advance, for my destined victory is on the way.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!
I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
Doubt and fear flees when I call upon the mighty name of the Lord.

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.
If you have been praying and asking God for financial breakthrough in your life, but haven’t received a blessing, it is time for a major change. I want to challenge you, for the next 30 days, to do something different. I challenge you to GIVE to the less fortunate like never before.
When you give, God will give back to you and more. In this article, I want to share a solution to your financial problems. I know, because I have tried it and it has worked out well for me. In fact, it has helped many people get out of debt.
God desires us to live an abundant life. When we give, we don’t have to worry because God will take care of our financial needs. In the Bible, He says that He will “fight the devour” for us when we are obedient.
In Luke 6:38, it says to…
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
When you freely give, God unleashes supernatural blessings from Heaven. God will not withhold anything good from you when you give. However, when you don’t give, it can block your financial blessings.
My Financial Breakthrough Experience
One day, I asked God, “How can I be blessed financially and get out of debt?” He gave me the answer within the dream. Within the dream, he sent me the following message:
“I will bless those that give to families with children that are struggling financially. Give to parents that have been laid off from their jobs. Give in addition to tithes and I will bless them to get out of debt,” said the Lord.
Within the dream, God also showed me that giving does not have to be just money, it could be school supplies, food or clothes. As long as it is something of value.
God’s message wasn’t just for me, it was for everyone that was struggling with his/her finances.
When I started paying 10% of my income to my church CONSISTENTLY and giving to struggling families with kids, God began to release financial blessings in my life.
Tip: Sometimes God will lead you to give to a reputable children’s organization. Just ask and He will lead you who to bless.
