Arrow Financial Breakthru Thread & Prayers

I am on a special fast right now with the Lord concerning finances. I just want you ladies to know that I was a previous homeless person for several years and God has raised me up in an extraordinary way to prosper greatly by His word and faith. Not only that but in the very near future I will be financially free and totally debt free and yes, that is in this economy. I am on my way to retiring early at 40 and I am 27. You see I do not play with giving. This has not been just monetarily but EVERY area of my life. In this economy I have seen great moves of God and great favor. I would like to impart that favor to you ladies. I will be frank, this is not a get rich quick or lottery thread. God knows our heart and our intents. If you are not giving, you are not recieving. God is not a man that He would lie and He tells us to challenge Him on His tithes. Often times people think you just have to give to Church when the Lord clearly says that we are also to uphold the cause of the orphan, widow and homeless so do not feel condemned if you give to such causes. Here is a Jabez prayer I still use to this day and would like to share with you:

Lord, bless us indeed.
Do something so big in our lives that it is obviously from You.
Increase our influence and opportunities for You.
Give us a sense of your continual presence and direction.
Protect us and keep us from falling into Satan's traps.
In Jesus name, amen!

Please share with us any prayers and breakthru's you all have seen concerning giving.

Giving scriptures

Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Deuteronomy 16:17
Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.

1 Chronicles 29:9
Then the people rejoiced because they had offered so willingly, for they made their offering to the Lord with a whole heart, and King David also rejoiced greatly.

Proverbs 3:9-10
Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first of all your produce; So your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine.

Proverbs 3:27
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Proverbs 11:24-25
There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want. The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.

Proverbs 21:26
…the righteous gives and does not hold back.

Proverbs 22:9
He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.

Proverbs 28:27
He who gives to the poor will never want, but he who shuts his eyes will have many curses.

Malachi 3:10
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.

Matthew 6:3-4
But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Mark 12:41-44
And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent.Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

Luke 3:11
And he would answer and say to them, “The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and he who has food is to do likewise.”

Luke 6:30
Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.

Acts 20:35
In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Romans 12:8
…Or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.

2 Corinthians 9:10
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;

Galatians 6:7
Do not be deceived,God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.

Philippians 4:15-17
And you yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone; for even in Thessalonica you send a gift more than once for my needs. Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.

James 2:15-16
If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

@sidney, I thank you for your insight! I was so surprised at how many viewed but did not post . In this society and current economic system in the world it is sooooo so important for us to position ourselves and our families for abundance. And the generation to come after us! I always come in the Christian forum but never saw a thread concerning these issues. While I understand some are sensitive about their finances, this is the time to wise up with ourselves and stop living as the world lives and wondering why our family never has enough. I know the vast majority of Christians in today's society are not tithing and/or giving on a regular basis and I think we need to re-evaluate ourselves. There also seems to be a lottery mentality that has even tried to creep into some churches where people think they can give 1 dollar and get 1,000 the next day. We need to allow the Lord to truly reign in every area of our life and that includes finances as well if we are going to totally submit our will to His.

If we keep our hearts on God and concerns on others, He will take care of us. I can't cry out to the Lord and expect to be heard on high when I ignore those who are utterly destitute. I can't imagine digging through trash for food, being cold and without shelter. And the children! God is just! If we give, he gives. It's just that simple. And about the gambling, well Proverbs 13:11 is clear on that. We have to be good stewards. Put that dollar to work and grow it! Say no to worldy wisdom. Thanks for your insights!

Also I am thankful that it is you that God used to give a testimony. As a previously homeless person no one can understand more than you what that is like. I pray that God breaks my own heart and otherd hearts about the things he cares about like homelessness. It's easy to be removef from it but his word is clear. I pray that He continues to bless you to spread His testimony about the need to give. God bless you.

“Without faith, it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6

Prayer: “Almighty God, my heavenly Father, we worship and adore you. It is with great diligence that we seek You for the breakthrough that we need in the realm of our personal finances. We believe all the promises of your Word, which unlock the doors of faith for us to enter into all you have for us. Therefore, we ask for a financial miracle from your hands, and we ask in faith, nothing wavering. We believe you are leading us, guiding us, blessing us, and rewarding us. Thank You, Father.

O God, you are more than able to take care of all financial difficulties, because you know exactly what needs to be done and what steps need to be taken. We trust in You with all our hearts, without leaning toward our own understanding. In all our ways we acknowledge you, Father, and we know you are directing our steps toward financial freedom. Let Your resources flow freely from the place of excess to our place of need.

Enable us to manage the financial resources you give to us more effectively so that we will be free to serve you more fully, and to give to the important causes of Your kingdom, Father. Responding in obedience to your Word, we ask you to command your blessing upon our finances and upon all that I do.

Deliver us, O God, from financial pressures, for we know You are our only hope. We will hope in You continually, and yet praise you more and more. We cast all our cares, worries and anxieties upon you, because we know You care for us. You are our strength in the midst of trouble and we know you are walking with us in our situation. Therefore, we will keep our mind focused on you and will trust You knowing that you will keep us in your perfect peace. Thank You, Father, for all you have done and are doing in our lives and our finances.

We believe and confess Your goodness. Your faithfulness is ever sure. No good thing will you withhold from those who are called according to Your purpose. The mountain of financial problem is turning around to abundance. Thank your for Your divine favour in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Why are we not receiving ...

One thing I'd like to add about giving, the first argument would be I have no money I have nothing the give, the truth you do have something to give...check your cupboard, check your closet, what about your time.

If you have more than two tins of milk you have something, more than 5 pears of shoes and clothes that you haven't worn in 6-12 months..

And sometimes we DO have money but we'd much rather spend it on hair products, make-up, food clothes, shoes (on our selves) it doesn't take much to help someone else.

Ladies, I already have a PRAISE REPORT. Since starting this thread and casting down my own selfish ambitions in prayer for my LHCF sisters in Christ to recieve His abundance, the Lord is releasing to me a settlement that has been held up in courts and it was a great burden to me and my family. Which reminds me of the story about David and Goliath. I did not even want to be apart of this hearing but DH encouraged me and the Lord gave me strength! That is not just the praise report itself. God also gave me the wisdom and heart to pray for the Judge and her family even before the final verdict was made. I also prayed for the opposing party for God to bless them and deal with them according to His word. That is because the battle is not ours it's the Lord's! God is beyond awesome!

Blessings for Obedience Deut 28

28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

7 The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

8 The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 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.

12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

@Iwanthealthyhair67 this is so true! When I didn't have money, I was ALWAYS giving things to Goodwill or other charities.

Let's not forget, we can give our time as well.

@BostonMaria

I have actually given the testimony in a few threads but I will do it again since this thread is so dear to me! I hope you have a cup of tea. So this is my story about becoming UE....ok ok seriously. I just laugh at the enemy now because he really tried me for a long time and he is defeated!

When I was 20, my ex-bff at the time pretty much manipulated me to move to ATL after I was offered a position with my local State Representative to work in her office but the town that I am from is very small and dead endish. So with some reserves and being somewhat courageous, I decided to move to ATL about 5 years ago now because I am just radical like that but I knew the Lord was calling me. Everyone in my small town said I was an idiot and that people go to college to get offered the position I was offered(even though this representative was put out of office soon after for fraud charges). Long story short, the ex-bff left me in an apt that was about 1000 a month in today's money. She left me high and dry and I refused to strip or do anything unethical because my conviction for the Lord was so strong. She did not even try to communicate with me about the problems we were having. Long story short, within that time frame I was evicted but the Lord gave me favor with a store manager in Buckhead and she gave me a position in her store and then I was able to secure a place to stay for 2 years by a mother at my church. During the time I was homeless, I would study victory scriptures and scripture on prosperity. I gave with all I had,more then 10% because I wanted to be obidient to the Lord and challenge Him as He says to us in Malachi. My ex-bff ended up getting another (possibly cancerous) lump in her breast after the first lump and had surgery again at the age of 23. I think it was and this was after leaving me when I became homeless.

I am not saying I am perfect by any means, as we are all saved by grace but one thing I know how to do is love God, forgive my enemies and be obedient!

Prayer to use on the job and in business
Prayersfire.com By Dr. D. K. Olukoya

* Confessions: Psalms 56:9; 32:8; 23:1,6 Exodus 23:20
* Praise Worship

Let all my enemies turn back because God is for me.
As you are turning back, let the doors of business opportunities open for me; morning, afternoon and evening.
Let profitable business meet me on the way in Jesus’ name.
No devourer shall destroy the fruit of my labor in Jesus’ name.
You devourers and wasters of fortune, I command you to depart from my life in the name of Jesus.
I use the Blood of Jesus Christ to wash my hands and my entire body and make them clean today.


I retrieve my blessings from every evil attack in Jesus’ name.
I break every curse of failure in the name of Jesus.
Let the Lord reveal to me every secret behind the problem.
I command the devil to take off his legs from any money that belongs to me in the name of Jesus.
Let the ministering spirits (God’s Angels) go forth and bring in blessings unto me in the name of Jesus.
Let the rod of iron fall on any strange money passed to me in Jesus’ name.

Blessings to you all!

When I was 20, my ex-bff at the time pretty much manipulated me to move to ATL after I was offered a position with my local State Representative to work in her office but the town that I am from is very small and dead endish. So with some reserves and being somewhat courageous, I decided to move to ATL about 5 years ago now because I am just radical like that but I knew the Lord was calling me. Everyone in my small town said I was an idiot and that people go to college to get offered the position I was offered(even though this representative was put out of office soon after for fraud charges). Long story short, the ex-bff left me in an apt that was about 1000 a month in today's money. She left me high and dry and I refused to strip or do anything unethical because my conviction for the Lord was so strong. She did not even try to communicate with me about the problems we were having. Long story short, within that time frame I was evicted but the Lord gave me favor with a store manager in Buckhead and she gave me a position in her store and then I was able to secure a place to stay for 2 years by a mother at my church. During the time I was homeless, I would study victory scriptures and scripture on prosperity. I gave with all I had,more then 10% because I wanted to be obidient to the Lord and challenge Him as He says to us in Malachi. My ex-bff ended up getting another (possibly cancerous) lump in her breast after the first lump and had surgery again at the age of 23. I think it was and this was after leaving me when I became homeless. Now I live in Florida, married, living near the water, own 2 cars debt free(one is a restored antique droptop convt) and I am going to school debt-free(I also get PAID to go to school; studying Gemologist and Minister) and love it beyond words! I also own my own jewelry company and I am growing a nice retirement nest egg. This is why I do not battle against flesh and blood, I let the Lord fight my battles. He said touch not my anointed!

This is sooooo awesome!!!!! Just wow! My eye was drawn to your tithe. I had the biggest revelation on this awhile ago. Both Abraham and Isaac tithed. Your testimony confirms it. Last week I had a job breakthrough and I wasn't even actively looking. Praise HIM!

Go on with your UE self! No hate here!

@Honi Your response blessed me! . This is just so awesome to be able to share my testimony with you ladies. It is funny that you brought up Abraham because the Lord confirmed His plan for my life through Abraham. I still remember when I went to a TD Jakes conference in ATL and he said duing a sermon "You stepped out on faith, blindsided; not knowing the foreign land God was taking you but you were being obedient to the Voice of God and you will be blessed dramtically because of it!"(this was years ago now). It was wild to hear him say this but I received that confirmation over and over during my time of trial. I just got to the point where I did not have anything but the Word(which in the biblical time was Jesus in the flesh) and I just walked with Him no matter what people told me. To this day I am still considered radical .

Prayer for those repenting about their tithing and they are standing steadfast for godly wisdom from the Lord. This is posted with absolute love. ECC 4:9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. Let's receive the breakthrough together in Jesus name !

“Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to you with praise for being a God that is so forgiving and merciful. I need your mercy today.

I have been complaining about the condition of my finances and you have revealed through conviction that I am responsible for my financial condition. I have an unhealthy unbalanced way of dealing with my money.

I confess and repent and turn from the sin of robbing you of your tithes and the offerings you have told me to give in the past that I have withheld from you and the church. Lord, this sin set a curse upon my family and myself. This shows a deeper problem with greed, and I am asking you to show me the root of it, and how I can re-new my mind about giving back a portion of what you blessed me with. All is your’s, Lord anyway.

I renounce the sins of not trusting in you to supply all my needs, the sin of fear of lack, greed, unbalanced priorities, stinginess, apathy and hoarding.

Help me to have a heart that worships you, not money. When you do bless me, show me the ways I can be a blessing to others. Give me a heart that craves to give to others.

Lord, I ask for the fear of the Lord to be implanted into my soul in my financial dealings. I need this conviction to keep me on the right path of putting your needs for your kingdom first, as you have promised to supply the needs of my earthly kingdom when I do.



I choose today to serve you, Lord. Not the god of mammon. I ask that you bind the lying Assyrian King spirit that has trapped me in the past to be selfish with the things YOU have bestowed upon me.



Lord, all I have was all yours to begin with. You have blessed me and trusted me with the stewardship over it. I have broken that trust. I bow down before you and give it all back to you. I ask for your wisdom to lead me to the proper way of handling all that I have.



In Jesus’ precious name, to put you first in my life and my family, Amen.”

God is Source

The first principle is that God is the source of everything. Philippians 4:19 says, "My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Proverbs 8:20,21 adds, "I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."

And 2 Corinthians 9:8 says: "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work." Whenever we need money or possessions, prayer is the answer. Look to the Lord, because He will provide it-according to His will.

Giving Essential

The second principle is that of giving. Luke 6:38, a key verse, says, "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." According to Deuteronomy 14: 23, one purpose of tithing was to teach the people of Israel to put God first in their lives.

I find there are a couple of ways I can put God first daily. One is to have a quiet time. If I am unwilling to meet the Lord each morning when I get up, that means I'm putting somebody else or something else before the Lord.

For example, how many people have thought seriously about not taking the daily newspaper? The man who is unwilling to cancel a newspaper subscription, which is keeping him from reading the Word of God, may often be the same man who is having trouble making the payments on the TV set that is keeping him from doing the things that would help him grow closer to the Lord. So it can be a vicious cycle. And with TV commercials by the dozens exhorting him to buy, spend, charge and go, is it any wonder that thousands of people are so molded by the world?

Having a quiet time is one way a person can put God first. I believe another is to commit a tenth of his income-right off the top-to the Lord's work. Proverbs 3:9,10 reads: "Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst with new wine."

Have a blessed weekend
