PRAYER FOCUS DAY 7: FINANCES AND PROSPERITY
Proverbs 3 tells us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths… Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty.”
God has told us through His Word that when we acknowledge Him in all of our ways and lean not on our own understanding, He will direct our paths. This includes finances. On this seventh day of your fast, ask God to consider your finances. Sow a "first fruits offering." If you sow the unusual, you will release an unusual harvest back into your life. Expect financial miracles this year! Seek Him for blessings that can be used to advance and expand His kingdom and bless others. You take care of the little things, and God will handle the big things. Don't worry about the money; just do what God tells you to do. He is the God of provision; He will see to it; He will provide; He will make a way. Even if you are praying for something that seems bigger than you, boldly declare it right now: "Thank You, Lord, for being my Provider in all things. I give You praise for provision! Thank You, Father."
