Prayer is a powerful tool that we have at our disposal. We can pray about anything, including powerful breakthrough prayers for finances.
Praying for your finances is just as important as praying for anything else. The truth is that we need money to sustain us while we’re on earth. Scripture tells us that “money answers all things” (Ecclesiastes 10:19)—meaning that money is intended to help us meet our physical needs.
If this is true, then we should be including prayers for finances as a part of our daily routine so that we have the financial resources to meet our needs.

How do you pray for finances?
When you pray for finances, you simply make your requests and needs known to God (Phillippians 4:6). He already promises to provide for us (Philippians 4:19), all we have to do is ask (Matthew 7:7).

These prayers have not only helped me pay off $78,000 in less than 3 years, but God has also blessed our family’s finances in supernatural ways. I pray the same for you.
5 Breakthrough Prayers for Finances
Prayer for financial help and stability
Dear God, your word says that you will supply all our needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). I believe what you said. Your word does not return back void (Isaiah 55:11), so if your word says it, you will do it.
God, if you care enough to know the number of hairs on our heads (Luke 12:7), then you care for our finances too. So Lord, according to your word, give us our daily bread (Matthew 6:11). Provide the financial resources to meet our earthly needs.
I thank you that the righteous are never forsaken, nor do their children beg for bread (Psalm 37:25). You will not let us lack or go hungry. I thank you that every need is met and that there is no need among us (Acts 4:34). You are Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides (Genesis 22:14).
God, I stand in financial need, but your word declares that you are an ever-present help in time of need (Psalm 46:1). I thank you that you are present and that you will provide me with the financial resources that I need to have stability.
It is not your will to see us suffer in lack. Your plan is to prosper us (Jeremiah 29:11), so God, cause me to prosper according to your word.
Thank you for the people that you have assigned to bless my life financially. Bless them even more abundantly for their obedience.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Powerful prayer for financial breakthrough for tithers
God, I thank you that I am in covenant with you. Your word says that if I tithe that you would “throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it” (Malachi 3:10, NIV). Right now, I’m asking for an overflow of financial blessing.
I thank you that you also rebuke the devourer on our behalf (Malachi 3:11). So, I thank you that my money, financial resources, job, and business are protected from the devourer.
I thank you that because I am a giver, it shall be given to me—”a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over” (Luke 6:38).
Thank you that I have access to heaven’s resources (Romans 8:17). I call down financial resources from heaven. I declare that it shall come speedily.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Prayer for getting out of debt
God, you have called us to be lenders and not borrowers (Deuteronomy 28:12) and your word requires that we have no outstanding debt but the continual debt of love (Romans 13:8). Lord, I want to honor your word by becoming debt free.
As I put action behind my faith (James 2:17), I ask for supernatural acceleration of debt payoff. As I do the natural, God you do the supernatural (1 Corinthians 15:46).
Lord, this is a burden in my life, but you said that we can cast our burdens on you (Psalm 55:22). I am giving you this burden. Free me from the bondage of debt so that I am no longer a slave to my lenders (Proverbs 22:7).
Open up opportunities for me to increase my income to pay off debt. Give me wisdom on where to reduce my expenses and how to be responsible with my money.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Prayer for employment
Lord, right now I stand in the need of employment. It is my desire to work so that I can provide for my family. You are the God who opens doors that cannot be shut (Revelation 3:8), so I’m asking you to open a door for employment with the right company.
Your word also says that our gifts will open doors for us (Proverbs 18:16). Allow my gifts to open up doors of opportunity to be used to bring glory to your name. And when opportunities come, give me discernment so that I can know which one to pursue.
You are my provider and I trust you to provide for me (Genesis 22:14). I will not lack in this season (Psalm 23:1). All of my bills will be paid. I will have more than enough. You will sustain me (Psalm 55:22).
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Prayer for wealth building with spouse
God, your word says that you give us the ability to gain wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18). You promised that if we obey you, that you would make us prosper abundantly and that you would bless the work of our hands. (Deuteronomy 28:11-12). So Lord, as we work and labor, bless the work of our hands to be prosperous as we build generational wealth.
Your word says that “a good person leaves an inheritance to his children’s children” (Proverbs 13:22). We are striving to honor your word, so help us to be responsible with the financial resources that you have blessed us with. Give us the wisdom to be good stewards of our money and our time. Help us to be faithful over the little things so that we can be trusted with more (Matthew 25:23).
Your word says that the wealth of the wick is laid up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22). God, we are your righteousness through Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21), so we receive the financial blessings stored up for us. Thank you for cities that we did not build, houses already filled with every good thing, and vineyards that we did not plant (Deuteronomy 6:11).
Grant us divine strategy, insight, and information so that I can develop a plan for our money. Deposit ideas and inventions in our mind that will result in great financial gain. Grant us favor in the marketplace and in business.
Allow us to be a conduit of wealth so that you can build up your kingdom here on earth. We will honor you with our first fruit and tithe and we will give to those in need. Thank you for blessing us to be a blessing.
We give you all of the glory, honor, and praise that is due your name. In Jesus’ name, amen.
