A Prosperity Prayer and then Scriptures on Prosperity
Your Word tells me that you want me to be prosperous. Your Word tells me that you want me to arrive at a place where I will have abundant finances. You Word tells me that when you bless me financially, you are showing your covenant intentions. That sounds wonderful, Lord.
I want to thank you for revealing to me that it is your will to prosper me financially.
Lord, Your Word tells me that you financially bless those who are obedient to you and those who love you and put your kingdom first. I realize that to truly have financial freedom, I need to love you and obey your word.
Lord, I come to you, ready to press into your will and your plans in my life more fully than I have before. I declare that am going to allow you to live through me more fully.
Lord, I realize that if I am obeying just to get money, I've totally missed the entire meaning of your scriptures. Help me to keep my priorities, your priorities.
I declare that I will continually delight myself in you, Lord.
I will praise you, my God and King, and bless your name each day and forever.
In Jesus' name I pray,

Prayers for Prosperity - Scripture references
"But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God" for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy father, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV (God gives the power to get wealth to establish his covenant - the one with Abraham and as we shall see in Galatians - that is also with us.)
(This does not imply that we should hoard money. We are to be givers - generous givers. In addition, I remind you that the Bible sometimes has conditions to its promises.)
A few years ago I went on a search to see if God really did want us to prosper financially.
One of the Scriptures that I couldn't ignore or deny without being ridiculous was in Proverbs.
"A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous." Proverbs 13:33 NKJV
God wants us to have enough money to leave plenty for our children and grandchildren. It has to mean that because of the comment about the wealth of the sinner. If the inheritance was a good name or integrity or love, then it would have to fit the second part of the verse.
Many other verses were powerful in convincing me of God's will in finances.
I will continue by talking about the blessing of Abraham and how God said that the blessings of Abraham are for us.
The Blessing of Abraham is for us:
Galatians 3:13-14 “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us for it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree' that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Verse 16 “Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made."
Verse 29 “And if you are Christ's then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
So we are heirs to what was given to Abraham.
What was given to Abraham?
Genesis 22:15-17a NKJV “Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham, a second time out of heaven, and said: 'By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son – blessing I will bless you and multiplying I will multiply your descendants.'”
Genesis 24:1 NKJV “Now Abraham was old, well advanced in age; and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.”
All things probably means ALL THINGS.
We see in the next few verses that blessed is associated with financial wealth....
Genesis 24:34-35 NKJV “So he said, 'I am Abraham's servant. The Lord has blessed my master greatly, and he has become great, and He has given him flocks and herds, silver and gold, male and female servants, and camels and donkeys.”
Genesis 26:12 NKJV “Then Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.”
Genesis 12:1-2 NKJV “Now the Lord had said to Abram: 'Get out of your country, From your family And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.'”
Genesis 13:2 NKJV “Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.”
It appears obvious to me that God means to bless financially.
However, there are conditions to the blessing. Meaning that there are conditions to manifestation of the blessing in finances.
We will point out two verses about this:
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33 KJV
"If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land." Isaiah 1:19 KJV
If you would like to examine some of God's wisdom about acquiring wealth, please see our Biblical Finances page.
There are some conditions....
Yet just like with healing - God wants all healed but not all are healed - God wants all prospering financially - yet all are not. We study the Bible so we can access as much healing (and financial blessing) as we possibly can. Yet we do not know all things. We are all still learning.
Praying prayers for prosperity is fine if we keep the main things the main things. All too often, Christians begin to focus on money and take their focus on drawing close to God and on spiritual growth.
This is not an essential doctrine for Salvation.
We do not believe that we should get upset with people who hold a different opinion about prosperity.
We at Inspirational-Prayers believe in harmony and unity among the brethren in matters that are not essential. This topic has been used by some to create strife among the brethren. We do not agree with using this topic to create any strife.
We at Inspirational-Prayers are still learning and growing in the Lord. We are not trying to discourage anyone. We are trying to encourage everyone.
God does want to bless us financially.
However, in every life, it is normal to have seasons of financial difficulty.
If you feel that you are having a lifetime of financial difficulty instead of a long season of difficulty, we encourage you to go to our Biblical finances page and begin to study scriptures on the subject.
As believers, we must pursue God's wisdom, be obedient and be open to learning spiritual warfare in order to see more of the manifestations of the blessing.
Again, this page is intended to build up. If you do not hear the message that way, you have misinterpreted our words or intentions.
Note: If you look over my website, you will see 200 pages and only one on the subject of prosperity. Don't forget to keep the main things the main things.
