Struggling with Spending Problems


Please pray for me and others who have difficulty managing their finances.

Please pray that the Lord will grant me the strength and faith I need to overcome what is for me a very big challenge. I have been blessed with a wonderful job and sufficient income yet, it's two days after payday and I'm already overdrawn at the bank and have no savings.

In the past several months it has gotten worse. Rent and car payments have gone late. I can't even pick up my phone because of calls from creditors. I can't sleep at night because of money worries. Yet, when I get even a little bit of money, it seems as if I can't stop myself from spending it.

I feel embarassed, ashamed and stupid. I cannot handle this on my own. Please, pray that the Lord will help me overcome this compulsion to spend what little money I do have.

Gracious father,
I ask you to come into this situation with your unique presence.I know there are times we spend to glorify ourselves and to show off and in the process we overdo.Grant us the calmness and diligence and wisdom to correctly utilize the gifts you have bestowed upon us.May they not become liabilities but rather assets that are used for your glory.Touch this your servant and extinguish this flame so that your light may shine ever so brightly.We ask this in your mighty glorious name.
Amen

I know that Spirit is all there is. And as this Divine Wisdom flows through all it's Creation, I know that Lanaye and Spirit are ONE. In this unified state of wholeness, I know Divine right thoughts, words and actions now flow through this situation and that the abundance and wisdom of the Universe now align and shine in and through and as Lanaye's life now. She is guided to the highest good in her body and body of affairs and I am thankful in knowing that all her neeeds are met now so that she may go forth and multiply that which is always being given. I am thankful Spirit is all there is and that the unified consciousness of peace and prosperity now vibrate through every atom of Lanaye's being now. And I speak this word knowing that it is already done. And so it is. Amen

Financial problems pull a person down to his/her knees. Me and my immediate family are experiencing it. Sometimes, life becomes so frustrating. Nothing seems to run right. But always, after a long bout of desperation a belief in the power above gives a sense of calm like a warm blanket in cold, icy winter. Things will not always remain the same, I tell myself. The sun will shine again. I say this with apprehension for the present and future and also with a faith in God. He will defintiely help us out -someday, sometime, somewhere. HE WILL! Tell yourself this repeatedly as I tell myself time and again. God never gives problems without hiding a solution somewhere.

This is Sam. I know what you are going through. The good thing is that you can fix it all you have to do is ask for help. I'm a debt consultant I see this all the time and I can offer help. shelley1219@msn.com

Dear Lord, Help me to manage my finances better. I have come a long way but have more to do yet. This year has been very low income wise yet my personal and business expenses continue. I do not have the additional expense of raising a child as in past years with little help from my spouse but am still cleaning up past bills incureed with those expenses and building up my business on my own. Help me to do the best job possible and not to get overextended anymore. Praise for your goodness and care. CF

I was given an immediate lift upon reading the passages here. It is warm and comforting to know that I am not alone. It has been a hard road to reach the point I am now. Although I still have debt to pay, I have paid a large amount in the past two years, and will keep plugging along 'till the rest is whittled away. Let us all find strength through one another, will power and courage to overcome what seems insurmountable. Let us ask for guidance, forgivness, and a renewed knowledge to prevent this from happening again.
Bless You

Divine Father please guide me along a path where I can wisely use my finances. I have placed myself in a dark, debtfilled hole that it seems impossible to leave. My fault I need your eternal light and mercy. Please help my not to waste my money and my talents. Help me to wisely use what financial resources I have and Let me do work that is spiritually, creatively and monetarially fulfilling. Dear Lord I know that you are the source. I am grateful for your mercy and care. Amen.

I will pray that you find the peace of mind you need to see the top of the mountain. There is help.I pray that you may have the blessing of an EAP program,or that you might find the help you need at CCC. At least to stop the pain of the wolfs at your heels.

LORD, this is a problem in this society. You know where it stems from , it is a spiritual problem based upon the spirits of idolatry and greed. Those spirits are driving these people to try to fulfil some need that can't be filled by things or money. Lord only you can fill the void. It ALL belongs to you. We are only stewards, that is caretakers of your money. Lanaye give God his honor and recognition ...seek his guidance. SUBMIT YOURSELF TO HIM. God can and will fix it for you. But HE is a jealous God and does not want us to put anything before HIM.
AMEN AND HALLLELJUAH

Lord, please help me as I struggle with our financial problems. I keep trying to get ahead, but I always seem to get behind. I am at the end of my rope, I would just like to be able to pay our bills and not have to worry about the phone ringing and it being a creditor. I pray that I could just get on track. My New Years resolution was just to be able to pay all bills on time. I do not care if there is no money left, but just to be able to pay all of my bills. Please heavenly father I need help as I am on my last hope. The next is ending it all.
