A Prayer Regarding the Radical Redistribution of Wealth
Reflections of the Heart:
As we listen and obey God, we will be blessed with prosperity throughout our lives. All our years will be pleasant! Job 35:11
Heavenly Father, we thank You for being our God. Thank You for our Pastors and Church Family. Father, we thank You for surrounding us with Your favor like a shield. Thank You for continuing to open doors of financial opportunity. We praise You with all of our hearts; we will tell of all the marvelous things You have done. Your reign is forever. You execute judgment from Your throne. You judge the world with justice and the people righteously. Father, Your righteousness reaches to the highest heavens. You have done wonderful things! Who can compare with You?
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, let justice roll down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream. By faith, we decree that Your Spirit remains among us, so we are not afraid. We believe that in just a little while You will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land. We conceive that You will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. Lord, we receive the promise that You will fill this place with Your glory. The silver and gold is Yours! As Your people, we confess that Your glory is upon us, and people will see and take special notice of the brightness of our rising. We are the seed of Abraham and blessed in all of our doings. Therefore, as Your people, we will achieve with the same anointing that came upon Israel when they spoiled Egypt of their silver, their gold, and their fine apparel for that anointing remains here with us, now! Lord, today, we call forth the Radical Redistribution of Wealth into our land, so that we are lenders and not borrowers! We decree justice in our court-rooms, jobs that pay decent wages, education where our children actually learn and healthcare for everybody.
What is your dream for creating economic wealth?
Holy Spirit, as we receive economic wealth, help us to remember that it is the Lord who gives us the power to get wealth to fulfill His covenant. Please help us not to hoard Your financial blessings. Remind us to be generous and to look for opportunities to be a financial blessing to someone else in need. Help us to walk in humility, meekness, love with long-suffering, gentleness and goodness. Empower us to not be afraid or intimidated by the world, nor be impressed by the appearance of its power and influence.
Merciful Father, forgive us for all acts of sin, including idolatry, greed, stinginess, self-centeredness, arrogance, pride, stubbornness, financial disobedience and any other act of unrighteousness. Forgive those of us who fail to develop financial plans that include tithing, debt reduction, savings and investments. Forgive us for living beyond our means and misusing credit cards. Father, forgive those of us who do not pay our tithes and help us get on track and begin to tithe. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person (s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Father, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.
Sovereign Lord, You made the earth by the power of Your Word and preserve it by Your Wisdom. With Your own understanding, You stretched out the heavens. When You speak in the thunder, You announce that the heavens are filled with water. You cause the clouds to rise over the earth. You send the lightning with the rain and release the wind from Your storehouses. Holy, Holy, Holy are You the Lord of Heaven’s Armies; the whole earth is filled with Your glory! In Jesus Name, Amen.
