Throughout the Bible, we see that God has a lot to say about finances. God wanted to be involved with Abraham’s finances, and He wants to be involved with yours. Fundamental principals of Abraham’s prosperity:
“And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver , and in gold.” – Gen. 13:2
“He listened to, and obeyed God.” – Gen. 12:1-4
“He honored God, who prospered him.” Gen. 12:7
“He was generous, and avoided strife.” Gen. 13:5-8
“He was compassionate toward others.” Gen. 18:24-33
If you want God to be involved in your finances and prosper you, you must honor these basic principals. You cannot be greedy and truly prosper. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have abundance for yourself and your family, but giving to God and being generous to others is part of the spiritual law.
Solomon understood the principals of prosperity. He was one of the richest men who ever lived. His proverbs reveal many truths regarding finances.
“Honor the Lord with thy substance and with the first fruits of all thine increase: so thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst forth with new wine.” Proverbs 3:9-10
“He who gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes [from their want] will have many a curse.” Proverbs 28:27 AMP
But in order to have true riches, the motive of yoru heart must be pure, to bless others and establish God’s covenant.
“And beware lest you say in your [mind and] hear, my power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth. But you shall earnestly remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gies you power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:17-18 AMP
God does indeed want to be involved in our finances. Most Christians who are defeated in their finances are defeated because they believe and confess the words of the enemy, and those words hold them in bondage. What we believe and speak affects the natural world, including our finances. God has given us His Word so that we can understand these spiritual laws. When you work with these laws, they work for you. When you work against God’s spiritual laws, they work against you.
When you speak negatively about your financial situation, you have what you say and believe. Here is a very important spiritual law: You can have what you say. With your words you can choose life or death, poverty or riches, sickness or health. You may tithe 10%, work hard, and pray for prosperity every day, but if your words are negative and contrary to God’s Word, you could stay in debt, struggling ot make ends meet.
Words are powerful, but God’s Word is full of creative power. When you agree with what God has said about you, speaking His Word, your circumstances will begin to change and line up with His Will for your life.
Prayer for Finances
Heavenly Father, I (we) come to You now in the Name of my (our) Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit I (we) pray that You will quicken me (us) to hear my (our) heavenly Father’s Voice and lead me (us) in prayer. Heavenly Father, I (we) bow and worship before You. I (we) come to You with praise and with thanksgiving. I (we) come to You in humility, in fear, and in trembling. I (we) come to You in gratitude, in love, and through the precious Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Heavenly Father, In Jesus Christ Holy Name, I pray Your Word over my finances and I thank You for manifesting Your Word in my life according to 3 John 1:2; “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as they soul prospereth; “But thou shall remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” According to Deut. 8:1 “…but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” According to Mark 11:23; “And these are they which sown on good ground; such as hear the Word and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty fold, and some sixty, and some a hundred.”
According to Mark 4:20; “He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.” According to Proverbs 13:3; “I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.” “But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” According to Philippians 4:13, 19: “But this I say, he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.” Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.”, according to 2 Corinthians 9:6-8. I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ with thanksgiving. Amen.
Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name and on the authority of Your Holy Word, I call my debts paid in full. Debt, I speak to you in Jesus’ Name: be paid and be gone. Dematerialize and cease to exist. I now declare that all my debts, mortgages, and notes are paid in full, cancelled, or dissolved. I pray in Jesus’ Holy Name with thanksgiving. Amen.
As I give, it is given unto me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Luke 6:38
My God makes all grace abound toward me in every favor and earthly blessing, so that I have all sufficiency for all things and I abound to every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
I am bless in the city, blessed in the field, blessed coming in, and blessed going out, my laying down, my rising up. I am blessed in the basket and bless in my bank accounts, investments, health, and relationships; they flourish. The blessings of the Lord overtake me in all areas of my life and I receive them. Deut 28:1-14.
I am like a tree planted by rivers of water. I bring forth fruit in my season, my leaf shall not wither, and whatever I do will prosper. Psalms 1:3.
The blessing of the Lord makes truly rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22.
The Lord has opened unto me His good treasure and blessed the work of my hands. He has commanded the blessing upon me in my storehouse and all that I undertake. Deuteronomy 28:8 and 12.

God has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness, and I am well able to possess all that God has provided for me. Numbers 13:30, 2 Peter 1:3-4
I delight myself in the Lord, and He gives me the desires of my heart. Psalms 37:4
The Lord rebukes the devourer for my sake, and no weapon that is formed against me will prosper. All obstacles and hindrances to my prosperity are now dissolved. Malachi 3:10-11; Isaiah 54:17
The Lord is my shepherd, and I do not want. Jesus came that I might have life and hit it more abundantly. Psalms 23:1; John 10:10.
