How to Pray for Financial Breakthrough (Part 1) – Understanding Financial Miracles
The scripture above clearly says that we could and should pray about everything. It says instead of worrying and getting anxious about anything, we should turn the moments into prayers and thanksgiving. When we do, we will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep our thoughts and our hearts quiet and at rest as we trust in Christ Jesus.
When the Bible says everything, it means everything….yes, your financial needs inclusive. Instead of getting worried about your financial situation, you can actually pray about it.
This lesson is intended to share with you prayers and how to pray for your financial needs. At the end of these series you will be able to confidently pray in times of financial scarcity and receive answers from God.
“Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law.” – Romans 13:8
Sometime ago, I found myself in a dire financial fix. I needed a financial miracle, and I needed it ASAP. I had to pay some bills or face being insulted by my creditor.
Usually, I had never bothered about praying for money. I believed that God blesses us by the works of our hands.
But this time, I found myself where I needed to get some urgent financial assistance.
In our Church, we’re taught against borrowing, especially borrowing to support lifestyle. We’re told that we can borrow to fund a business idea, but that borrowing to pay rent, support our wardrobe and others does not make sense.
“Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.” – Proverbs 22:7
I also found out that living with that principle has helped me out over the years. But this time, business wasn’t doing well and we needed to pay our rent or face being insulted by our landlady.
So I began to pray for financial help. I prayed several nights and asked God to show us the way out. While doing that I found out in scriptures that we can actually pray for money. Money is part of our needs that God does supply. I also learned there’s a way to pray for financial miracle.
God showed me that all the money I would need in my life are here on earth and not in heaven. He is not printing Dollars, Pounds, Euro, Naira or Rand in heaven. He showed me how to take control of the matter spiritually and release angels to get the money I want.
Weeks later, after I had started praying for financial miracle and always declaring things like, “angels of money, go now and bring my money to me. Cause men and women who are connected to my finances to come”, I had a call to come and train someone on digital marketing. I went. Unfortunately, the pay was way smaller than I had anticipated. Although, even if the student had paid 5 times the fee I usually charged, it would not have solved our problem.
But while training the student, he came up with some ideas that needed my service. He wanted the jobs executed immediately. At first I was like, “this student could not even pay the normal training fee, how would he get money to pay for something else?”
But while we discussed, he made me an offer that surprised me. And before I could say jack, he paid immediately. No waiting for analysis, reviews, meetings, etc.
The transaction relieved me of the situation; but more importantly, I had learned something. We can pray for a financial miracle when we are in a fix, and there is a way to pray and get answers for financial help, career and business breakthrough.
In these lessons, I will charge you to pray for your finances and get a breakthrough if things seem tough at the moment. Get ready. Something good will happen to you, in Jesus name.
A miracle is a divine intervention. Something that alters normal course of life and produces a positive effect. For instance, the common way to make money is to render a service or sell a product. Using that definition, one would therefore say that a financial miracle is an intervention that helps someone out of a financial situation without directly rendering a service or selling a product.
While that is accurate, it is however wrong to ONLY peg financial miracle on that premise alone. I believe that financial miracle is encompassing. For instance, if you are working on a job that is not yielding enough money for you at the end of the day, and you seek God about it, and get a raise, or a better offer eventually (say, after a couple of weeks or months) …that’s a financial miracle breakthrough.
If you are in a financial fix and suddenly someone calls you and gives you a job that gives you relief after you have prayed, that’s financial breakthrough.
If your business is not doing so well and you spend time seeking God about it, and then eventually get an idea or ideas that transforms everything for you, and gets you back on track to profitability, that’s a financial miracle breakthrough.
The Bible says:
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” – James 1:17
So if you find yourself at a point where you really need a financial assistance, a raise, a push, or you feel that the enemy is threatening your finances, you can pray and loose the angels of goodness and mercy to work and bring your supplies back.
