Prayer to Honor God With My First Fruits:
Proverbs 3: 9-10: 9 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; 10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being able to satisfy our every desire and need. I acknowledge that everything good comes from you because you are a good Father. Proverbs 3: 9-10 says we should honor you with the first fruits of our wealth. Lord, help me continue to be disciplined to follow your Word concerning what you have given me. Accept my tithes and offerings as a gift of worship to you. Multiply what I give to grow your kingdom. Lord, continually remind me that I can out give you. Luke 6:38 tells me “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.” Lord, I don’t give solely to receive from you, but I do stand on your promise that I will be blessed for my obedience. All prayerfully asked in your Name. Amen
Prayers to Have Self-Control Over Spending
Proverbs 25:28: “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”
Galatians 5:24: “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”
Lord, I am petitioning you for help in controlling my spending. I recognize that lack of self-control is evidence of the flesh, but self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. I come before you for asking for your help in a daily infilling for the Holy Spirit.
My out-of-control spending has affected my life in less than beneficial ways. Some purchases feel right at the moment but cause so much added debt and disappointment afterward. I know you are calling me to live a life of self-control in all areas. Help me practice discernment and not choose the path of instant gratification. Please forgive me for the times I chose to act in my flesh, when You gave me a better way. As I get more control on my spending, I know my debt will decrease and I will have less stress in my life. Please remove this need to buy and what appears to be greed sometimes. I want to be a good steward of my finances. I know that begins with controlling my spending. I’m trusting you for help.
All the in Name above all Names. Amen
