4 Things to Pray About Your Money
If you want to live and give the way God intended, you’re going to need a whole lot more than math. However, we often get caught up in our busy lives and forget the point of it all: God doesn’t want you to only spend your money for enjoyment, but to use it to make a difference and bring Him glory.

1. Pray Against Temptation
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.1 Corinthians 10:13
This verse has some good news and bad news. The bad news is that whenever I give into temptation, I only have myself to blame. No one, not even spiritual forces, can force me to do the wrong thing. The responsibility is on me. The good news? God always provides a way out.
2. Ask For Opportunity
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.John 15:5

Practicing generosity means more than just tithing. While it’s great to support your local ministry, there are many personal ways to impact the people around you. Have you considered opportunities in your workplace, neighborhood, local charity, or even the grocery store? The ways to show God’s love are endless. So when it comes to your money, pray and ask God to give you opportunities to bear fruit with it.
3. Stay Grateful
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and aweHebrews 12:28
As we wrestle to figure out this life, we can sometimes forget about the beautiful promises God has made to us. One of those promises is that all Christians have a home in Heaven. If you’ve committed your life to Jesus, then your momentary troubles will not compare to the blessings that God has in store for you.
This short reminder does not mean your financial trouble isn’t stressful. What you are experiencing is real, but it’s not how your story ends. Staying grateful will help remind you that your financial situation is only temporary. So, make it a habit to cling on to God’s promises, and thank Him for his present and future provision.
4. Pray For Wisdom
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.Proverbs 3:5-6
On your journey, there are plenty of winding turns and forks in the road. Sometimes we take a path that looks great and ends in disaster, or even make a mistake that changes our lives for the better. One thing is clear: the only one that knows the future is the Lord. When you rely on Him instead of on your own strength, He will take you to amazing places.
Now, that doesn’t mean you will be free from mistakes or pain. When you ask God for wisdom and clarity for your financial life, He will reveal to you what you need to change in your heart. As God teaches you, you will see your financial decisions transform into Godly actions that not only please God but make the world a better place.
