For Wisdom in Daily Financial Decisions*

Father, I know that it is Your will that I prosper financially even as my soul prospers. In the name of Jesus, I bind my mind to the mind of Christ, my financial decisions to the will of God, and my emotions to the control of the Holy Spirit. I resist the temptation to be slothful in business, and I purpose to be prompt about fulfilling my responsibilities with fervency of spirit, serving You. I pray that my integrity and uprightness will protect me, because my hope is in You.
It is my desire to go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society, and to provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. That’s why I pay my taxes, my bills, and respect my leaders. I resist the temptation to run up debts; except for the huge debt of love I owe others.
It is my ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind my own business, and to work with my own hands. I will study to show myself approved in finances and will attend diligently to my financial responsibilities. Jesus is made unto me wisdom, and I thank You, Father, for getting godly information—books, tapes, teaching seminars—to me so that I can make wise financial decisions. The slothful person craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. In the name of Jesus I will be a living witness and a good steward of all that You have given me. Amen.

* To acquire wisdom in daily financial decisions, I recommend reading the book of Proverbs. There are many Bible-based books to help you learn God’s principles of tithing, giving, saving, and budgeting.
