A Ministry in Need of Finances
This prayer was written in response to an appeal for help from a ministry in a financial crunch. This ministry reaches out to people addicted to drugs, alcohol and other substances, and then out beyond the youths and adults to their families. After we had prayed the following prayer, it was given to our editor and prayer request correspondent. It can be used to pray for the needs of any ministry.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we believe that all of the needs of _________ are met, according to Philippians 4:19. We believe that — because this ministry has given tithes and offerings to further Your cause to help youth, adults and families come to the knowledge of the truth — [gifts] will be given to them; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will they be poured into their bosom. For with the measure they deal out, it will be measured back to them.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray, confess and believe according to Your Word that those in Your Body who have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among the people will reap from the people’s material benefits, for You have directed that those who publish the good news of the Gospel should live and get their maintenance by the Gospel.
We confess that Your ministers with ________ Ministry seek and are eager for the fruit that increases to the people’s credit [the harvest of blessing that is accumulating to their account]. The people’s gifts are the fragrant odor of an offering and sacrifice that You, Father, welcome and in which You delight. You will liberally supply (fill to the full) the people’s every need according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Father, we call forth partners who will respond to Your call to support this ministry prayerfully and financially.
Lord, we thank You for directing the leader, _________, who seeks Your ways, teaching him/her the fortitude of Your Word and the steadfastness of its truth. Your anointing, which destroys the yoke of bondage, abides within him/her permanently. Teach him/her to pray for the people and the government of our land. We thank You for Your Word, which brings freedom to the hearers, and we thank You for preparing their hearts to receive the good news of the Gospel.
Lord, strengthen (complete, perfect) and make ________ what he/she ought to be, equipping him/her with everything good that he/she may carry out Your will; [while You Yourself] work in him/her and accomplish that which is pleasing in Your sight, through Jesus Christ (the Messiah), to Whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages).
In His name we pray, amen.
