Mike, this idea of prayer couldn't be further from what it is we are called to as followers of Christ. "the maximum return is mine" is a true statement, in the sense that we are to store for ourselves treasures in Heaven; not on this earth. However, we are to give with absolutely no expectation of earthly return! We read about the selfless heart of the widow who gave her last - and only - two pennies to Christ, not about how she was hit by the head by a treasure from Heaven and all of her needs were met financially. All of her needs were met by her Heavenly Father, and it was not necessarily in the form of a financial investment. In fact, were this ideology to be true, in that our giving to the poor can be seen by a clear-cut financial return, the widow would be the most wealthy woman on the face of the earth. Correct? Mike, I am by no means one who promotes poverty-as-faith, as I fully believe in the pursuit of financial prosperity. However, to use and proclaim your 'right' to financial prosperity because you give financially is quite out of the question, and biblically inaccurate. As a christian, your "rights" sound a little bit more like this: To find your life, when you decided to lose it. To pick up your cross and follow Christ To daily die to yourself, with sacrifice and selflessness To daily surrender your rights to Him Finally, we are commanded when we give to not let our "right hands know what the left is doing" when we give. If we are to proudly boast and proclaim the accomplishment of our giving, then, according to Christ, we "Have our earthly reward" of the 'admiration' of peers. To me, that pales in comparison to the idea of a heavenly treasure.
Father, in the Name of Jesus I confess Your will over my finances this day, that I have given the tithes of my increase and I claim the windows of heaven blessings for my life.
Thank You Father, my mind is alert and I hear Your voice and the voice of the stranger I will not follow.
Thank You, I receive now doors of opportunity open for me and my family. Father, I have given to the poor, therefore, I will never lack. I will always have all sufficiency in all things as you are raising up others to use their power, their ability and their influence to help me.
I expect daily, Father, for the Spirit of God to speak to men and women concerning giving to me, and in the name of Jesus those to whom the Spirit of God has designated are free to obey and give to me good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
In Jesus’ Name, I believe every need is met with heaven’s best. I have given for the support of the work of God and those who teach His Word. You promised that You would supply all my need according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
So, I thank You Father, I live the best and enjoy the best in every area of my life. Father, Your Word said I can decree a thing because of my covenant vow with You for the kingdom of God in the earth.
Now this is my decree (whatever that particular decree is) and I thank You for wisdom and insight to bring it to pass. You give me and my family richly all things to enjoy. Now, satan, I bind your activity in my life and I loose the angels, the ministering spirits of God to minister for me and bring in the necessary finances so that I may continue to finance the kingdom of God. Father, Your Word declares that my giving increases the fruits of my righteousness.
I thank You Father, I have the abundance of peace, the abundance of joy, the abundance of patience, the abundance of temperance and the abundance of goodness. The maximum return on my giving is mine because I give to promote the Name of Jesus and the gospel in the earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
What happens when I confess the Word?
- Causes faith to come
- Stops satanic hindrances
- Angels get their assignment from the Word of God (Angels are assigned to assist in the will of God to come to pass in my life)
- Conditions my spirit to produce
