Prayer for Wisdom in Spending:
Proverbs 21:5 “The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.”
I come to you today seeking guidance and clarity as I try to determine my priorities with my finances. Help me to let go of any confusion and uncertainty, and to focus on what is truly important. I want to be a wise steward of the blessings you have given me.
Grant me the wisdom and discernment to make good financial decisions, and to prioritize what truly matters in my life. Help me to prioritize giving and generosity, and to use my resources to advance your kingdom and serve others. Proverbs 3:9-10 “Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”
Teach me to be responsible and disciplined in my spending and saving, and to prioritize my long-term financial well-being. Help me to trust in your provision and care, and to know that you will always meet my needs. Guide me in being financially independent. I don’t want to be a debtor to credit cards. Proverbs 22:7 “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Guard my heart against building material possessions that don’t bring glory to you. Align my priorities to your desires.
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 prioritize my finances in a way that honors you and brings me joy. Amen.
Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Prayer for Being a Wise Steward With My Finances:
Luke 12:15 And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Heavenly Father, I come to you today with a grateful heart, acknowledging that every good and perfect gift comes from you. I thank you for the blessings of financial provision and the ability to earn a living. I admit I haven’t often made wise choices. I’m turning to you to help me make better decisions and find opportunities to invest in your work.
I confess that I have not always been a good steward of the resources you have given me. I have wasted time and money on things that do not bring glory to your name. I have not always been responsible with my finances and have failed to plan for the future. Please help me be more vigilant over your resources.
I ask for your forgiveness and for the strength to change my ways. I pray for wisdom to make wise financial decisions, for discipline to save and invest wisely, and for the courage to live within my means.
Help me to use my finances to support your kingdom and to bless others. Teach me to be generous and to use my resources to make a difference in the lives of those around me.
I trust in your promise to meet all my needs according to your riches in glory. I believe that you will provide for me and that you will bless me as we seek to honor you with my finances.
I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Proverbs 27:23 “Know well the condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds.”
