Prayer for Financial Discipline:
Matthew 6:26 “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
Lord, I come to you today seeking guidance and clarity as I try to determine my financial path for the future. Help me to let go of any fear and uncertainty, and to trust in your plan for my financial well-being. I cast aside all fear that Satan is trying to put on me. I trust no matter my circumstances, you will provide for me as needed.
I am committed to doing my part in the plan. Grant me the wisdom and discernment to make good financial decisions, and to follow your will for my financial life. Help me to be responsible and disciplined in my spending and saving, and to prioritize your kingdom above material possessions.
Teach me to be generous and charitable with my resources, and to use them to serve others and advance your kingdom. Help me to trust in your provision and care, and to know that you will always meet my needs.
Thank you for your presence and love in my life, and for the many blessings you have bestowed upon me. I pray that through your guidance, I may discover your plan for my financial future, and follow it with confidence and joy. Amen.
