The topic of money and possessions occurs in Scripture over 2350 times. Jesus understood the importance of teaching his disciples about money and finances. Almost half of the parables are about money and possessions.
Jesus, You are my Redeemer. I thank you. I thank you for reaching out and saving me.
Lord, I want to grow as your disciple.
Psalm 24:1 says—“The earth is the Lord’s and all it contains.”
You oh lord are the owner of everything. By your will and grace you have allowed me to steward part of your creation. Help me to know your will and your desires as I steward your resources.
Jesus, this world promotes having lots of stuff. I want an intimate relationship with you. Lord you said the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
Lord, if all money has a spirit on it. It is either your Spirit of God or the spirit of mammon. Help me Lord to remain vigilant against the spirit of mammon.
Jesus you experienced this temptation. In Matthew 4: 8-10 when the enemy offered you the kingdoms of the earth and their wealth, you quoted Scripture and responded that you would serve God only.
Jesus, I choose to serve you. You are my Master. You are my Saviour. I trust in you. You alone are faithful.
The rich, young ruler (Matthew 19:16-22) chose to trust in his own riches. Lord, I don’t want to be a servant of money. I want to be your servant. I choose to serve you. Help me lord to break off the spirit of mammon from my life.
Jesus, I confess there have been times when I struggled with money and possessions thinking that there might not be enough. I might fail. Forgive me Lord, for not surrendering my money and possessions to your Lordship and leading. Please forgive me for listening to the unholy spirit of mammon. Lord, I ask you to break that spirit off my family, my descendants, and myself.
Lord, I repent. Forgive me when I have acted selfishly. When I have coveted things and maybe didn’t even realize it. Help me Lord to see that by acting that way I was actually serving another master.
Forgive me for trusting anyone or anything other than you.
Proverbs 3:5-10 says.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on our own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct you paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones. Honour the Lord with your possessions and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine”.
God, I know you to be generous and extravagant. I thank you God that you delight in blessing your children.
You are my Source. I trust in you.
Wash me clean from any lingering influences or affects from agreeing with mammon. Set me free from any love of money rooted in my heart. Help me to walk according to your Word in the area of financial stewardship. Holy Spirit lead me in how to manage money and possessions, wisely and generously.
Holy Spirit, I pray that you would reveal to me areas in my beliefs that are contrary to your will. Lord, your word says (Jeremiah 17:9 & 10) “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.”
Show me lord; help me to know the motivations behind my behaviors. Keep me lord tuned into your Spirit so that the spirit of this world or the spirit of mammon would not influence me.
