I shared last week that the number one prayer request on the Blessing Counters Pray Page is one that asks for God to heal broken relationships. The next most asked for prayer is one for God to provide help at a time of financial distress.

So today, we’re going to pray about our finances and ask…

I'm praying and asking God to make us wise with money because so many people I know find themselves in a state of need and worry about their finances. #Money #prayer #Faith #BlessingCounter

God, Please Help Me to be Wise with Money

Father, I want to be wise with money and handle my finances in ways that please You. Help me.

Jesus said, “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” Matthew 6:19–21

Father, Please help me. Teach me contentment and may a closer relationship with You and with the people You give me be the treasures I want. Help me place the highest value on the things that will last forever.

Solomon wisely wrote…

Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!  Ecclesiastes 5:10

Grant me true peace and happiness found in a satisfied life.

Paul wrote…

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” Hebrews 13:5

If I have a roof over my head, food to eat and clothes to wear … may I enjoy contentment. If I compare myself to others, please keep me from envying those who have more but faithfully see those in need and who are living without life’s basic necessities.

Your Word says…

Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do. Deuteronomy 15:10

And I know that those blessings may or may not be monetary … but I will trust You to meet every need. Philippians 4:19

Your presence. Matthew 28:20 and Psalm 139:7–10
Your peace. John 14:27
Your provision. Matthew 6:28–33

I can trust Your love. I can trust You to care for me.

I can honor You with my money.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Proverbs 3:9

Father, please make me wise with money.

May I balance the difference between my wants and my needs. May I work … yet, remember it’s important to take time to rest. May I value my relationships over the accumulation of stuff. And give a heart of gratitude for all the countless ways You have provided for me in the past.

I surrender my worry and fear to You trusting that You will give me courage and strength to live today in Your presence and for Your glory.

In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
