Prayers For Financial Blessings

If you need a financial blessing from God, this article will guide you on how to pray for financial blessings from God.Prayers for financial blessings
It is a known fact that almost every Christian expects God to bless them financially. Most of us believe that our responsibility is to serve God, while it is God's responsibility to take care of us—including catering for our financial needs. And I must admit that we are right for thinking so.

Prayers For Financial Blessings

One way Christians tend to implore God to bless them financially is through prayer. I'm aware that many need a scriptural guide on how to pray for financial blessings, that is also why I'm writing you this article. 

However, I can readily point out two major mistakes many Christians make when it comes to their financial dealings with God:

  • The mistake of seeking money from God— even though a Christian is knowingly doing nothing that pleases God or nothing deserving of a financial blessing. 
  • Serving God with the ulterior motive of getting money from Him. 

The first portrays selfishness and a deadly entitlement mentality. The second portrays manipulation at its finest. 

Lest we forget, God can see through our motives and intentions for doing all that we do, in the name of worshipping Him. 

Matthew 6:33 BSB
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.

The golden rule is that, if we hope to receive from God, we should first seek His very essence—not material benefits. We should wholeheartedly desire to walk with Him and please Him. 

Our undivided attention should be channeled towards living wholy for God. We should be focused on what we can do for God, not what we want Him to do for us. 

God will be pleased when He sees how genuine our intentions for following Him are. Then He will proceed to do His part—which is adding all other things to us (including money). At the end of the day, both parties are settled, and no one feels cheated. 

My two cents for Christians who constantly pray for financial blessings (and those who are about to start praying), is that they should make sure they have already done their part, by following principle for receiving from God, found in the holy scriptures. 

Relationship with God is partnership with Him, it's not gambling. You're not going to win money from God by trying to outsmart or manipulate Him. One can only be found worthy of receiving a financial blessing from God, when they seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. 

Philippians 4:6 says that “in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, we should make our requests known unto God.” 

Yes, it is scriptural to pray for financial blessings, but to ensure that our prayer is answerable, we should first ensure that we have followed the principle outlined in Matthew 6:33.

God is good, and all the plans He has for us are good. It is part of His will to prosper us financially. We can be rest assured that when we do our part, God is faithful enough to do His. 

How To Pray For Financial Blessings From God

Here are some tips that can help you pray effectively for financial blessings:

1. Thank God For Your Present Financial Status

There are many out there who have money, but because they are not in good health, they are unable to spend their money. 

Most of those who pray for financial blessings from God are already sound in health. They are able to afford their daily bread, at least. That's already a lot to be thankful for. 

You must exhibit an attitude of gratefulness for your current financial status, because there are many things God has already blessed you with, that are worth more than money. 

2. Ask God For Contentment

Contrary to a popular belief, contentment is not the choice to settle for mediocrity. 

Contentment is being at peace with your present level of attainments; such that even though you are striving for more, you're not doing so in desperation. Although you desire and work for more, you wouldn't want to cut corners or do something sinful/illegal in order to achieve your goal.

Hebrews 13:5 NIV
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 

Most of those who ask God for financial blessings are already living comfortably; they're not among the poorest people on earth. It is unwise to give God a reason to interpret our intent for asking Him for money as desperation and greed.

Go ahead and ask God to enable you remain contented and grateful for your present level of financial blessing.

3. Ask God For The Gift Of Generosity

If you check closely the lives of some Christians who ask God for money, they are very selfish with their money. 

They'd rather sow a seed in the life of rich preacher who has promised that their money will be doubled, than give to their poor widowed neighbour who is struggling to feed her children.

Proverbs 22:16 NASB
One who oppresses the poor to make more for himself, Or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.

Then they'll go back to disturb God in prayer, telling Him that they'd sown a seed, they expect a double portion. That's much like gambling. God doesn't run a betting business. Let's always remember that God sees and understands our motives for doing what we do. 

The Bible has revealed to us the right way to be generous with what we have. Most of us already know how God expects us to be generous with our money. But because of greed and selfishness, some would rather attempt to circumvent the scriptural process, while still expecting a blessing from God. 

Being crafty and selfish with money is not the biblical way that leads to receiving financial blessing from God. The Bible tells us that such people come to poverty faster than they could expect (Proverbs 11:24). 

4. Trust That God Will Provide For You

It is pointless to do a marathon prayer asking God to give you money, if you won't trust Him to do just that. Trust is faith in its maturation stage. You have to be able to know for yourself that God will do His part, because you've done yours already.

Final Thoughts On Prayers For Financial Blessings

Every genuine Christian should by default expect financial blessings. Getting blessed or not getting blessed financially isn't something a Christian should debate with God.

Financial blessing is supposed to occur naturally in the life of a Christian is obedient to God and His Word.

I personally believe that Christians don't even need to ask God to bless them financially, if they are doing their part and can trust God enough to take care of them.

I'd rather pray over my finances to protect them from the enemy, than to constantly ask God to bless me financially. God already knows what I need, and I trust Him to meet my needs.

Nonetheless, you can go on and pray for financial blessings, using the guide provided in this article. It is not a sin to do so, it's 100% scriptural.

Remember, when God answers your prayer and blesses you financially, allow Him to also use you to bless others also. Be led by His Spirit to help those who are genuinely in need of financial assistance.

Remain blessed.
