Amen Dear Lord, please ease our hearts in this world of uncertainty, As we balance that which we desire with our true need,
I ask that you open my path as I seek employment that will allow me to support my family and myself while serving others and your divine purpose. In gratitude and grace, Amen. Heavenly father, please sustain my spirit as I search for new and meaningful work. You have blessed me with a healthy body and a keen mind for which I am grateful.
Dear Lord, In these troubling times, I am filled with unspeakable fears. I reach my hand out to you now. I ask you to walk beside me. Please help me hold on strong, During these storms. And help me hold my hopes high, Even in the darkest hour. Amen.
oil for one day, but God extended it to eight days. Jesus fed the multitudes with five loaves and two fish. With God’s grace, our “cups runneth over” and we “shall not want.” God provides. Amen.

Dear God, source of Love and Life who brings abundance to all, Please bring prosperity to me and my family now. We ask that these basic needs be filled:
I lift my head up to the sun And pray that I am inspired to turn darkness into light. Let me raise myself up beyond my problems. I look toward the future and what-could-be And pray that I can believe in myself and my abilities. Let me know in my heart that I have great strength. I honor the place of fear that has gripped me, But I pray that I do not let it own me. Let me do what I can to bring peace to my financial situation, And trust that this too will pass. From the deep reaches of my heart and soul, To the highest love in heaven, I pray for a healing of my financial situation. I reach a hand to the abundance of the universe, And pray that I learn to transform my fear into possibility. Let me open to all the good that exists in this world.
May this relationship be blessed. In times of financial strife, it is easy to blame your partner for what is wrong in your life. Always look deeper for the truth. May this relationship survive tests. When things go wrong, It is a chance to show That you can weather even the harshest storms--together. Always see your love as bigger than your problems. May this relationship bring you strength. When money is tight, you may feel weakened. Instead, come closer together to solve your problems. Always focus on the creating the life you want to share. May this relationship be your safe harbor There are plenty of things in the world to pull you apart. Stay strong, two against the world. Lean into each other and hold on. Let your relationship be your foundation and your support. Amen.
Dear God, Please bless my children. For this I pray: May they thrive in any economy. May they be safe and protected. May they be healthy and happy. May they be uplifted by love. May they be strengthened by opportunity. May their days be filled with fun and play. May all their needs be met—always. May there be food, clothing, shelter, and comfort. And may their souls be nurtured no matter the state of our world. Please bless my children in all ways.
We walk in troubled times, But let us not be troubled souls. We stand in financial challenge, But let us not see our lives only in crisis. We have suffered loss, pain, and indignities. But we have survived, and we will survive. We have been hurt and we may be broke, But we are not broken. Amen.
Dear God, I Need Cash For this I pray: Not asking for a million bucks Or money showing up in trucks Just need some cash to pay my bills And financial flow to cure my ills Not seeking huge amounts Just enough to make it count To take care of a basic human need And take care of those mouths to feed I know that times are rough But I want to stand tough I just need some cash to keep on going So please God, keep the money flowing. Amen.
Dear God, please bring prosperity to all people and bring healing to those who have been hurt by the economic crisis.
