Prayer connects you to the invisible intelligence that is hard-wired to your soul. Prayer is asking for help and wisdom. This Prosperity Prayer began circulating around the world via the Internet in the late 90’s. Since then, many people that have used it have reported they’ve found new work or received unexpected sources of money and good fortune in other area’s of their lives as a result of making the prosperity prayer a part of their life.
The Prosperity Prayer
I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.
I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money, and replace them with faith.
I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.
I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.
I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state.
I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life.
I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed.
And finally, I ask you to help me understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills and knowledge to be of service in the world.
Thank you, God.
God is a loaded word, perhaps a negative word for many people. I believe that God is part of us and flows through you. It’s the consciousness that inhabits you and animates the world surrounding you. It’s innate to your being that you receive God’s wisdom.
I see God as divine intelligence, wisdom and love. If you are more comfortable substitute the word God and use something else like, Universe, Creator or the “Force from Star Wars. It doesn’t mater which word you use for this prayer to work. Simply “know” that your words are heard and expect an answer.
I surrender my … to your Divine care and love
With this prosperity prayer you are surrendering your worries and concerns to a higher power that has your best interests at heart. Surrender is a difficult concept for many people to grasp. I’m not suggesting you simply “give up” in defeat.
Trust that the power that holds our galaxy together can handle the circumstance of your relatively little life. The Universe knows what it’s doing and you can trust it. Try it. Put some faith in this prayer, choose to surrender your worries and read the prayer aloud several times a day for a period of one month. See what happens at the end of this period.
I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money and replace them with faith
Many people struggle under the illusion that if you worry enough about money you will keep debt at bay. This is actually the opposite of how it works because worry is negative goal setting. To create prosperity you need to let go of fear and worry and focus on what you want – the positive side of the coin. Until you experience peace on the subject of money you will never be truly prosperous, irrespective of how much money you have.
Choose positive affirmations around money. Find a thought that you find comforting such as, “God is handling this now.” Or “I am choosing to have faith about money.” “I am now open and receptive to new avenues of income.” Say it often throughout your day. Then listen for guidance, after all you are communicating with a higher power. Guidance is easier to hear if you are quiet and slow down or meditate. Most importantly take action on the guidance your receive. What do you feel guided to do? Act on it.
I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life
Here’s a secret I’ve discovered in working with many clients over the years. There is tremendous power in the images you hold in your mind. Those images and the corresponding emotions they produce, create the reality you experience in your life.
When you think about the topic of money, what pictures pop into your mind? Your credit cards at their limit? Being homeless on the street? Not being able to pay your rent or mortgage? Struggle in a job you hate?
Resolve to change these pictures in your mind. Visualisations of your current state of poverty have a negative effect on your financial and emotional health. Close your eyes for a moment and bring to mind an image of what it would look and feel like, to have the prosperity you desire. Do whatever you can to make this image real and vivid.
Ask God, “Is there anything I could do right now that would allow this prosperity flow into my life?” Await a response. Don’t take action simply on what you think makes sense. Act only on impulses that feel like fun, make you excited, or seem enjoyable to you. As you begin to change these images in your mind, the Universe will bring together the circumstances and synchronicity to enable you to have the prosperity you deserve. Trust inn this process and don’t try to figure it out. Simply allow it to happen.
I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide
Abundance is your natural state. You block this state through your fear and worry. You cut yourself off from it’s flow. Take a deep breath and let in all of the abundance around you. Breathe the air and look at your immediate environment. What do you see? Probably leaves on the trees, snow on the ground, sand on the beach, grass on the lawns. Do you think the Universe planned this amazing world and forgot to include the means for you to accomplish your purpose in life and to live your dreams? When you say the Prosperity Prayer, spend a few moments to really take in the beauty and plenty in our world.
I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state
Your inner thoughts, what you say to yourself, make a huge difference in your ability or inability to attract material wealth. When you consistently focus on negative thoughts you can count on attracting negativity into your life. One of the easiest ways to combat this is to keep a stack of inspirational books, cards, audio-tapes or affirmations close at hand in order to help shift your focus.
The next time you fond yourself in poverty consciousness. Go easy on yourself and sit quietly, breathe deeply and imagine you are filled with and surrounded by God’s light and love. Bring to mind your current concern and ask, “Is there another way of viewing this situation that will make me feel better?” With an open heart and mind wait for the shift of consciousness and the answer to arrive.
I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life
Gratitude for what you currently have is the key to success and peace in your life. Say thank you.
What is in your life right now that you feel grateful for? The word abundance does not just mean financial prosperity. You are probably rich beyond measure in many areas of your life. Perhaps you are rich in family, friends, health, experience, knowledge and skills?
When you focus on appreciation, your intuition will constantly provide you with information about how to attain financial abundance. It will give you hints, impulses, feelings, hunches and dreams, to move you in the right direction. You need to be open to receive.
I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed
Be practical as it is said, “God helps those who help themselves.” This is especially true in the area of finances. In my work with clients, I’ve seen a clear correlation between how well they manage their money and their ability to attract more. Educate yourself financially. Take steps to make your cash flow positive. This will create a path to prosperity because its sets you up in this state – more coming in than going out. Don’t fall for the trap of “money isn’t spiritual”. Money is the physical equivalent of energy.
I ask you to help me to understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills to be of service in the world
You have a purpose in life. It is the thing about which you are excited, the thing you’d love to do if only you had a few million dollars and didn’t have to worry about money. When you are enthusiastic about something in your life, this is the clue about the direction to follow. The word enthusiasm literally has a Greek root that means, “God within.”
Begin to trust the passion that you feel. It takes courage and trust to live the life you were meant to live. You have access to the gift of divine guidance to help you achieve your destiny. Each time you pray for help and you act on the guidance you receive, you align your mind with the mind of God. You tap into a stream of love and intelligence that will direct you to prosperity.
