A Prayer For When Facing Financial Struggles & Hardship

Jehovah Jireh, Lord God, who provides all my needs according to Your riches in Glory, I come to You as I am struggling today financially.

The rent is due, there is not enough food to last the rest of the month, the loan needs to be covered, the electricity bill’s deadline has gone and even the gas in my car is close to E.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18  Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

Ecclesiastes 7:14  When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other.

Prayer For Money and Financial Breakthrough

Praying in the midst of the storm

In the midst of this storm, I thank You most gracious one, for I still have food at this point, I still have shelter from the rain and I still have a car to get me to at least one more destination.

I have eternal faith, trust and hope in You, Oh God, because You are going to turn this around for me.

Hebrews 12:7  Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?

James 1:12  Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. 


The Lord will make a way

Doubt and fear flees when I call upon Your mighty name. I may not see a way at this point, Oh Lord, my God, but I know You will make a way.

My dawn is drawing near, I can feel the financial breakthrough right around the corner and the blessings are going to rain down upon me. I thank You in advance, for my destined victory is on the way.

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!

Money is a necessity for basic living
