As Christians, it can feel awkward to pray for abundance and prosperity. It sometimes feels selfish to ask for things like this. However, God wants you to succeed and be prosperous in all aspects of your life. As long as you are asking the Lord with pure intentions you can, and should, always pray for abundance and prosperity!
When we think of prosperity and abundance we must always realize that all of this comes from God. We must humble ourselves and remember that “every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17, NIV).
It’s also important to remember that financial success doesn’t equal eternal joy and happiness. An abundant life isn’t defined by wealth or career accomplishments. An abundant life is something that starts first and foremost with Jesus.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10, NASB). A life of abundance is a life joyfully and purposefully lived for Christ. It is the only thing that will bring you a deep sense of abiding peace.
When we live a life of abundance we are free to live and give like no one else. We have the joy of the Lord deep in our souls. We are so full that nothing can diminish the sense of purpose, peace, and joy we have.

Help us to overcome our fears, so that we can build up more disciples. Help us to have the courage to go out, and truly make fishers of men. May we take Your great commission seriously and go make disciples of all nations. This is a really hard task to do, but I know in my inner core that it’s our job as disciples.

Prayers For An Abundant Life
Good and gracious God, You sent Your Son so that we might have life and live it abundantly. To live this life abundantly is to be abundant, not in stuff, but in the fruits of the spirit.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23, NIV).
Father, I know I lack in many of these areas. Please help me to grow in the fruits of the spirit so that I may have an abundant life. I don’t want to rely on material things in this world. I want to rely completely on You.

Prayer For An Abundance Of Mercy
Lord, help me to be abundant in mercy. Even though I don’t deserve it you’re always there showing me mercy and lifting me up. Although I don’t deserve your mercy, you still freely give it to me.
“But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:4-7, NIV).
Over and over again in the Scriptures, we see how Jesus showed compassion to those who committed such devastating sins. My sins are no different than theirs. Please remind me of that I’m not better than anyone else, so I must be abundant in mercy just as you are.
My heart is hard. I am angry and it’s not easy to be merciful. I hold grudges. I don’t want to be that way. I want to live life abundantly through you. When I am able to freely embrace your abundant joy and goodness I know mercy will flow abundantly as well.
Please take my heart and replace it with yours. Give me the desire to be merciful. Give me joy, compassion, and love instead of resentment and turmoil. I know it will take time, but I’m willing to work so I can be more abundant in mercy. In Your Name, I pray. Amen.
Prayers For Abundant Crops
Dear God, my livelihood relies on my crops so I fervently pray that you will give us an abundance of crops. Please help our crops to be as beautiful and lush as the ones you provided for the Israelites during their time of abundance in Egypt.
You provided an abundance for them so I know you will provide for me, even if it’s not exactly as I want it to be. Please just give me peace and surrender that whatever happens that you will provide for my needs.
Help me to remember these words from Scripture, “The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you” (Deuteronomy 28:11, NIV).
In the midst of all of this help me to be steadfast in faith so that I can live abundantly. Help me to live a life of zeal for you even if the crops are not abundant. In Your Name, I pray. Amen.
Whether you are on seeking abundance in wealth, generosity, a career, or overall abundant life, you must seek God to accomplish any of these goals. Everything comes from God so we cannot have an abundance of anything without acknowledging that it was the Lord who blessed us with it.
Talk with God about what areas of your life you would like to be more abundant and prosperous. He cares about every aspect of your life and desires to hear about it, even your finances! Always remember that, as Christians, we are called to live differently. We are called to live life abundantly (John 10:10, NASB)!
