1Titus 5:8 -- But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

Colossians 3:22 -- Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:

Lord when I hope in all my labor, I am a partaker of hope. When I work, it is fruitful because I commit the work of my hands to you. I work to provide for my household and you cause me to be blessed and lack nothing that is needful for my life and peace. When my work is excessive and causes me to fret or become tired, you give me rest and peace. It is not by might, nor by my own power, but it is by your Spirit that I succeed in what is set before me. Each day I am subject and faithful to fulfilling the requirements of my employment, even if my employer is not good or gentle toward me. I honor management, fellow employees and my place of work because I represent the kingdom of God as an ambassador. My actions never blaspheme the word of truth nor the name of God. Whatever I do is genuine, sincere and not with eye service as a man-pleaser. My inheritance is a reward as the servant of Christ, doing the will of God from my heart. My service is to you Lord and not to men. The good things that I do, I will receive good things from the Lord in return. My diligence, obedience and faithfulness to service yields promotion and financial increase.

As an employer, my business is built by righteousness, integrity and truth. I do not defraud, rob, withhold wages or other benefits from those who labor and help my business. I am a faithful servant over the small things, the greater things and even those things that belong to others. So when you come Lord, you shall find me faithful and I will be counted blessed and ruler over what you commit to me. My achievements and accomplishments are results of words and deeds all done in the name of the Lord Jesus. I give thanks to God and the Father in and by Jesus Christ. I am not weary in well doing because I reap in my due season and I do not faint. I do not faint in adversity, challenge, hindrance or necessities. I believe on you Lord and enter into your rest because my destiny and desire is to do your will, to finish what you have set before me and glorify you. A desire accomplished is sweet to my soul.

James 1:4 -- But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

God of grace, you have called me into your eternal glory by Christ Jesus. When I have endured any suffering for a season, you are the one who perfects, establishes, strengthen and settles me. Therefore I endure all things to obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. I do not strive but I am gentle to all men, able to teach and walk in patience. My spirit is patient rather than proud because patience is necessary to do your will and receive your precious promises. I willingly lay aside every weight of burden and sin that would try to hinder and block your will for my life. I run with faith, patience and endurance to inherit the purpose, motives and intentions you have destined for me. When I am tried and endure temptation I am blessed and receive the crown of life that you promised to those who love you. When my faith is tried I reap patience. And it is established in my heart and possess my soul. Out of the honesty and goodness of my heart, I have received your word. I keep it and bring forth fruit with patience, so I am called good ground. You know my works, my labor and my patience. I rejoice in hope, patient in tribulation and pray unceasingly. I wait patiently for the things that I hope for that have not manifested. Grant me your consolation and the ability to be sober, temperate, sound in faith, in charity and patience.

John 14:26 -- But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort. Thank you for comforting me in all my tribulations. I am able to give what I have received Lord, so I show compassion, give comfort and courtesy to others who are in any trouble. I dwell in your perfection, comfort, love and peace, and have been redeemed by your grace. You heal me, lead me and restore comfort to me and those who lament with me. When my soul is heavy, you comfort me in my affliction and strengthen me through your word that quickens my spirit. I retain your word in my heart so I will not stray from your paths. Your merciful kindness is my comfort. Your judgments, laws and precepts are my help. When my supplications come before you, deliver me according to your word and my soul shall live and praise you continually.

Matthew 6:33 -- But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Exodus 23:25 -- And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Father, when I honor you by giving of my substance, you cause me to prosper and everything that pertains to me will not fail. As I purpose to give cheerfully, not grudgingly or of necessity, you demonstrate your love toward me. By your divine power you have given me all things that pertain to life and godliness, and have called me to your glory and virtue. You are the God who desires that I prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers. I obey your law, precepts and commandments, and I remember that it is you who gives me power to obtain wealth. So your covenant is established in my life. You are able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that I may ask or think according to the power of your Holy Spirit that works in me. I know that whatever I sow, I shall reap. I will not be weary in well doing, I will not faint so that I may reap in due season. I am willing and obedient to obey your truth to eat the good of the land. All that I ask for and receive is not motivated by lust.

Your word will not depart from my mouth. I meditate day and night in your law to do according to all that is written. Your word makes my way prosperous and I am successful in every endeavor. You are pleased to give me the kingdom and trust me with true riches when I have been faithful over the small thing. When I give generously, I reap good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over and I receive favor from others. The measure that I give is measured back to me. Lord I honor you and will not rob you of the first fruit of my increase. When I bring all my tithes into your storehouse so that there is meat in your house, you freely open the windows of heaven. My blessings are abundantly poured out until there is not enough room to receive it all. Your blessings make me rich and adds no sorrow with it. Thank you for blessings that allow me to leave an inheritance for my children's children. I pray that you regard me as good and just so that the wealth of the wicked will be laid up for me. My house is built by wisdom, it is established by understanding and all the rooms are filled with precious and pleasant riches because of knowledge.

As I seek you daily, I do not lack nor am I found wanting of any good thing. I shout for joy and I am glad to favor your righteous cause. Continually I say, let the Lord be magnified in my life because you take pleasure in causing your servant to prosper. When I show favor to others, or lend to them, I guide my affairs with discretion. As I keep myself aligned to the path of righteousness, you do not forsake me nor does my seed beg for anything. I give you thanksgiving for sustaining me through the fire and through floods and bringing me out into a wealthy place in you. Blessed be the Lord my God and my salvation, who daily loads me down with benefits. Pour water upon me when I am thirsty and floods upon my ground when it is dry. Pour out your spirit and blessings upon my offspring.

You are my sun and shield, giving grace and glory, and withholding nothing from me as long as I walk uprightly before you. I am counted as blessed because I fear you Lord and take delight in your commandments. My seed are mighty and blessed upon the earth. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Thank you for blessing and keeping me. Your face shines upon me and you are gracious to me. My strength is in you and your favor compasses me about like a shield. Your wealth and riches are in my house and your imputed righteousness endures forever.

Luke 9:23 -- And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Lord by the enabling power of your Holy Spirit, I keep my body under subjection for a life that is holy and pleasing before you. I can preach to others with a lifestyle of holiness and righteousness. I am not ashamed of you because I know in whom I believe, and I am fully persuaded that you are able to sustain what I have committed to you. Perform your will in my life. I am not afraid to die to my flesh, so I will not lose my soul to damnation and be counted as a castaway in your sight. Strengthen me to endure hatred, persecution, and afflictions to the end so that I might be saved. Your righteousness establishes me, so when I ask, your kingdom blessings are revealed. When I seek, I find and when I knock, access to your kingdom is given to me.

Proverbs 22:6 -- Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Father I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ therefore my household is saved. I teach your law, precepts and commandments to my children, in our home, when we walk by the way, when we lie down and when we arise. All those that bless us, are blessed, all who curse us are cursed because we are of your household and fellow citizens with the saints. Our family receives wisdom, get understanding and we do not forget or decline from your word of truth. Our children obey instructions and are diligent to get understanding. We do not forsake your law and we train our children in the way they should go so when they are old they will not depart from it. Lord we rest in your promise that all of our children shall be taught of the Lord and great shall be their peace.

Father, your word says that if any lack wisdom, let him ask of you and you will give wisdom liberally and not upbraid. You have given our children the ears to hear a word saying this is the way, walk ye in it, but give them the spirit of obedience to your voice that will lead them in righteous paths. Give them wisdom so knowledge and understanding will pour out of their mouth. As they seek your truth, they will have understanding of all things. Instruct and teach them by your spirit in the way in which they shall go. Guide them with your eye as they desire truth to rule the hidden places of their heart.

Our children are a crown and glory and as we walk in the integrity of the Lord, our children will be blessed after us. Children are a heritage of the Lord and they shall be known by the next generation and declared to their children. The heavens are yours Lord, but you have given the earth to our children for a possession. Thank you that we shall see our children's children and peace upon Israel.

Prayer, praise and worship gets the attention of God. When you wholeheartedly welcome God’s presence, everything that He is comes into the room. So whatever is needed and necessary is found in His presence. James 4:8-- Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
