Welcome to the Prayers for Prosperity page where you will discover effective prayers that receive God's richest blessings.
"Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this world." (Ecclesiastes 7:14).
A wealthy industrialist leaped from the ninth-story room of a Chicago hotel leaving behind this note: "I am worth ten million dollars as men judge such things, but I'm so poor in spirit that I cannot live any longer. Something is terribly wrong with life."
The man was right. Something was terribly wrong with his life, because he had been born only once (John 3:1-5). Learn from Jesus about a mysterious second birth.

Father, I have a problem. It's weighing heavy on me. It's all I can think about, night and day. Before I bring it to you in prayer, I suppose I should pray for those who are less fortunate than me - those in this world who have hardly enough food for this day, and for those who don't have a roof over their heads at night. I also pray for families who have lost loved ones in sudden death, for parents whose children have leukemia, for the many people who are dying of brain tumors, for the hundreds of thousands who are laid waste with other terrible cancers, for people whose bodies have been suddenly shattered in car wrecks, for those who are lying in hospitals with agonizing burns of their bodies, whose faces have been burned beyond recognition. I pray for people with emphysema, whose eyes fill with terror as they struggle for every breath merely to live, for those who are tormented beyond words by irrational fears, for the elderly who are wracked with the pains of aging, whose only 'escape' is death.
I pray for people who are watching their loved ones fade before their eyes through the grief of Alzheimer's disease, for the many thousands who are suffering the agony of AIDS, for those who are in such despair that they are contemplating suicide, for people who are tormented by the demons of alcoholism and drug addiction. I pray for children who have been abandoned by their parents, for those who are sexually abused, for wives held in quiet despair, beaten and abused by cruel drunken husbands, for people whose minds have been destroyed by mental disorders, for those who have lost everything in floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes. I pray for the blind, who never see the faces of the ones they love or the beauty of a sunrise, for those whose bodies are deformed by painful arthritis, for the many whose lives will be taken from them today by murderers, for those wasting away on their deathbeds in hospitals.
Most of all, I cry out for the millions who don't know the forgiveness that is in Jesus Christ . . . for those who in a moment of time will be swept into hell by the cold hand of death, and find to their utter horror the unspeakable vengeance of eternal fire. They will be eternally damned to everlasting punishment. O God, I pray for them.
Strange. I can't seem to remember what my problem was.
In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Inspirational Bible Verses for Prayers for Prosperity:
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. . . Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:19-21; 25-27
1 Timothy 6:3-10
Prayers for Prosperity Quotes:
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters. Victor Hugo
For a hundred that can bear adversity there is hardly one that can bear prosperity. Thomas Carlyle
Wherever riches have increased, the essence of religion has decreased in the same proportion. Therefore I do not see how it is possible in the nature of things for any revival of religion to continue long. For religion must necessarily produce both industry and frugality, and these cannot but produce riches. But as riches increase, so will pride, anger, and love of the world in all its branches. John Wesley
More Prayer Quotes:
Prosperity is not without many fears and distastes; adversity not without many comforts and hopes. Francis Bacon
God only, and not wealth, maintains the world; riches merely make people proud and lazy. Martin Luther
Prayers for Prosperity and Prayers of Thanksgiving:
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for the wonderful people you have brought into my life. Thank you for meeting my physical needs, and limiting the provisions for my wants and earthly desires. The thought of the eternal riches which you have promised me in heaven satisfies the deepest desires of my soul. Lord God, I realize there are no greater riches than knowing You. Please remove my worldly cravings, replacing them with a hunger and thirst for righteousness and good deeds. In Jesus' name. Amen
