Day Three: His Finances

"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 you will not have room enough for it."
- Malachi 3:10
Blessed is he who considers the poor;
the Lord will deliver him in time f trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
and he will be blessed on the earth.
- Psalm 41:1-2
Where your treasure is,
there your heart will be also.
- Matthew 6:21
Lord, I commit our finances to You. Be in charge of them and use them for Your purposes, May we both be good stewards of all that You give us, and walk in total agreement as to how it is to be dispersed. I pray that we will learn to live free of burdensome debt. Where we have not been wise, bring restoration and give us guidance. Show me how I can help increase our finance and not decrease them unwisely. Help us to remember that all we have belongs to You, and to be grateful for it.
I pray that my husband will find it easy to give to You and to others as You have instructed in Your Word. Give him wisdom to handle money wisely. Help him to make good decisions as to how he spends. Show him how to plan for the future. I pray that he will find the perfect balance between spending needlessly and being miserly. May he always be paid well for the work he does, and may his money not be stolen, lost, devoured, destroyed, or wasted. Multiply it so that what he makes will go a long way. I pray that he will not be anxious about finances, but will seek Your kingdom first, knowing that as he does, we will have all we need (Luke 12:31).* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink,
not have an anxious mind.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after,
and your Father knows that you need these things.
But seek the kingdom of God,
and all these things shall be added to you.
- Luke 12:29-31
My God shall supply all your need
according to His riches in glory
by Christ Jesus.
- Philippians 4:19
