Prayer for divine provision

Lord we come to you this morning and acknowledge your Lordship over our lives. We give you honour and glory and praise for being who you are. You are our Abba, Father. As your children we come to you this day Father and we bring our needs to your altar. We know we are living in perilous times Lord. Not only is this world getting more and more dangerous but also the economy is more or less crumbling. However Lord you stated in your Word that you will protect us from the eonomic downfall and would provide for us as a loving Father would. You stated in Deuteronomy "Remember the Lord thy God for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth" We thank you Lord for providing us with the power to get wealth. For keeping us in good health and giving us the faculties necessary to  get wealth. Thank you Lord for restoring what the enemy is trying to steal from us. As you said The thief comes to steal kill and destroy but I have come that you might have life and that more abundantly. We ask for abundance in every area of our lives. We pray for Spiritual prosperity, soul prosperity and financial prosperity as well. You said that you take pleasure in the prosperity of your servants. You promised to provide for every financial need we may have. We take authority over the  enemy trying to steal our finances and peace of mind and we bind the devil and cast him out of our lives in Jesus name. We ask for your protection over our finances and as you said to the angel in the book of Revelations "do not touch the oil and the wine". We plead the blood of Jesus as a protection not only over our bodies, soul and spirit but also over our finances. We command you Satan in the name of the Lord to take your weapons and flee. For the Lord ha given me authority to walk all over thee. In Jesus name Amen!

Good Morning Lord

Give unto us this day we pray our daily bread from your Word the Bible and keep our Spirit and our soul nourished. We thank you heavenly Father for protecting us and keeping us on the pathway to holiness. Thank you for forgiving the multitude of our sins and  turning our lives around. We thank you for the priviledge to carry our burdens and cares to you in our prayers and to release our cares into your  capable hands. We know you love us  Lord and proved your love by taking the load of our sins on your shoulders and dying on the cross for us.
