We say a prayer for wealth if we want to communicate our needs to God trusting that He will answer our prayers and send the help we need.
In our economy in this world today, many people are experiencing at least one financial struggle. We all have financial needs, and these days, it is getting harder and harder to meet.
We believe that God will always make a way for us no matter what hurdles or struggles we are facing. So, here are some abundance of prayers we can use to come to God to find financial blessing.
What is a Prayer for Wealth?
We have a lot of needs in our lives like water, air, food, and these days, to meet these needs, we need money. Sadly, the world has come to the point where people cannot live a decent life without money.
God wants us to live happy and healthy lives so He will give us whatever we need to make it happen. We just have to ask God for anything we need and He will give it to us according to His will.
A prayer for wealth helps us connect to God and communicate our needs as well as our trust and faith that He will answer our prayers and send the help we need.
What Does the Bible Say About Wealth?
The world presents varying perspectives on wealth with some people saying that it is bad and others saying that it is good. But as Christians, we look to the Bible to find the right perspective when we look at wealth.
We know that wealth itself is not bad in God’s eyes because we see in the story of King Solomon how God rewarded Solomon with wealth after God was pleased with Solomon’s decision to ask God for wisdom. We can see in 2 Kings 10:23 that God did not reward him with simple riches but Solomon became richer and wiser “than all the other kings of the earth.”
Solomon was not the only one that God blessed with wealth and Jesus did shun people who come to Him based on their socio-economic status like Joseph of Arimathea, Zacchaeus, and Lydia among others.
All that being said, even if money or wealth itself is not evil or forbidden when God is concerned, the Bible gives plenty of warning about loving money. We all know that the temptation to love money is great because it allows us to live a comfortable life here on earth.
But, we are warned to guard our hearts to avoid loving money (Luke 12:15, Luke 16:13). There is nothing wrong with wealth as long as our hearts are in the right place. We have to make sure that our hearts are full of love for God and nothing else, especially not wealth.

Things to Keep in Mind When Praying for Wealth
God wants us to live life to the full
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Jesus Christ came to earth to bring us salvation from anything that hinders us from living life to the full. He gives us freedom from sin, ignorance, sickness, fear, chaos, and even financial struggles. If we read the Gospels, we will see that He always met people’s needs according to the will of God.
The same goes for us to this day. Financial blessings are part of God’s blessings. God is our parent and parents provide for their children out of love. God wants us to have an abundant life in all its aspects including our finances.
God should always come first
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
Paul tells Timothy of people that have been consumed by the love of money and caused themselves a lot of pain. Some people view money as evil but according to Paul, money is not evil but the love of it is the root of all kinds of evil (1 Timothy 6:10).
Jesus warned us multiple times of the danger of holding on to material wealth too much. He even went as far as to say that we are incapable of loving God and loving money at the same time. God teaches us to be humble and selfless, to be like Him, but once we love money, we will find ourselves being pulled in the opposite direction.
God teaches us to give to Him
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
The truth is, we do not give to God because we cannot give anything to Him. We only give back to God what is already His. God blesses us so much every day and if we give Him what is His, He will shower us with even more blessings. What have we got to lose?
God teaches us to give to others
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Some people mistake this verse as something that pertains to giving to God, but if we read the verses before and after, we can see that it talks about how we interact with other people. In this verse, Jesus is talking about us giving to others and not to Him.
He promises that if we give to others, it will come back to us in His time. We do not know exactly in what shape and form it will come back to us but we know that when we give, we will receive. Sometimes, we get way more than we could ever give.
Things To Do After Saying a Prayer for Wealth
Do your part
Some Bible experts say that Genesis 1:28 is both a blessing and a command. If this is so, then the very first commandment that God had given us is to work. God created everything in this world and He saw that it was good, and then He looked at Adam and Eve and He sent them to work on making this creation better or maybe just maintaining its inherent goodness. God told them to be good stewards of His creation. From the very beginning, God has given us a part in His work.
If someone told us that we just have to trust them, stop looking both ways when crossing the road, and believe that we would never be in an accident, we would most probably not believe them. God will take care of us and our needs but we have to also do our part.
We cannot and should not expect God to do everything because we have a part. We cannot expect a financial blessing to just fall on our laps. We have to do our part, exert effort, work, and make God proud.
Trust in God
We have to do our part if we want to be successful but we should also not rely on ourselves alone. We need God and there is no shame in admitting that. A simple prayer for prosperity can go a long way.
We should trust God entirely to the point where we follow and obey no matter where He sends us and what He tells us to do. Lay down all your worries and fears at His feet and follow His lead.
God has never withheld His provisions from His children especially those who have always followed His will. God sees your situation and He knows your heart so keep on praying, being thankful, and trusting and the time will come when you will experience all the answers to all your prayers. A prayer for wealth will help you align your plans with the will of God.
