Daily Prayer Guide: Day 21

Praying for Your City’s Financial Systems

Your city’s Financial Systems include banks, savings and loan associations, credit unions, investment agencies, foundations and charities. The Bible is clear that the Lord owns the earth and everything in it (Psalm 24:1). And it is He who gives people power to get wealth. (Deuteronomy 8:18). Many Christian leaders have noted that Jesus taught more about the right use of money than He did about prayer. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21), and “You cannot serve God and Money” (Luke 16:13). Indeed, God expects us to be responsible to Him as the Giver of our resources, and accountable to Him as managers for how we use them. (Matthew 25:14-30). And the right use of monies has to do with helping people in need (Matthew 25:31-46). Let’s PRAY then for your city’s people to use financial resources in the purposes of God:

Banks

Savings and Loans and Credit Unions

Investment Organizations

Foundations and Charitable Organizations

Your Places of Business
