Is it right to pray for wealth and prosperity? Although the Bible is very clear in 1 Timothy 6:10 that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” it is also clear from Psalm 11:1-3 that “wealth and riches are for those that fear the Lord.” It is God’s desire to see His children move in great authority through building and distributing wealth. But what do you do when you can’t even get past living paycheck to paycheck? What’s your prayer whenever you get a financial breakthrough and there is another setback waiting on the other side? How will you protect your marriage and your life when you just feel like your finances are cursed and getting stable is a distant miracle?
You must stand upon God’s Word and pray these things through with your better half to strengthen your marriage. It is not God’s will for you to live in despair, nor for the poverty mentality to have its way with you. Here are 4 prayers to pray for wealth and to break financial curses over your life.
Here are the 4 Prayers to Pray for Wealth
1. Your Needs Will Be Met According to Christ’s Glory
Heavenly Father, I stand upon Philippians 4:19 which states, “My God will meet my needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.” I thank you that I do not have to put trust in my ability to meet my needs, but I put my trust in Your ability to effectively work through me.
2. If You Seek the Lord, You’ll Lack No Good Thing
I stand upon Psalm 34:10, Heavenly Father, that declares “the lions may grow weak and hungry but those who seek the Lord shall lack no good thing.” Lord as I seek your face I am believing that I and my family will lack no good thing.
3. Wealth Will Be For the Righteous’ Children
Heavenly Father, I stand upon Proverbs 13:22 that states “a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.” Father, I am believing in you for creative ideas and opportunities to build wealth in order to leave a legacy for my children’s children. Let this be done according to your will.
4. Blessings Will Pour Out For You
I stand upon Malachi 3:10-12, Heavenly Father, which states, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops and the vines in your field will not drop there before it is ripe.”
Lord, we thank you as we are faithful in paying our tithes that you will not only protect our finances from the evil one, but you will also cause our finances to overflow. We rebuke the devourer and trust that every dollar you have for us is ours.
