Prayer for Help During a Small Windfall in Our Lives

by Krista (Moorhead, MN)

Lord, I confess that I have made mistakes, bad choices and ran before I could walk. I pray Father that with your help I can find a way to get current on all my bills and live life to the fullest before it’s too late. Forgive me for not being one to ask for help when I have need it and for getting in over my head.

I feel foolish and defeated when there isn’t enough money to make it until the next paycheck. I pray for a better system of keeping track of my bills and for the ability to get my finances in order. Day after day I drive by people who are holding signs that they are homeless, hungry or just need a hand up.

Even at my lowest points I will dig to the bottom of my purse for change and hand it over and say “may God bless you.” I feel ashamed that on the days that I have nothing to give and I could just as well be out there holding a sign for myself, that’s admitting I need help and the world would see my failures.

I pray Father for a miracle and for help in keeping this roof over our heads, food in our bellies and for the jobs that we have. May we be blessed with a windfall or for the means to keep our heads above water. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
