Another attitude toward money that needs to be clarified is this: Don’t be afraid to pray about money or to get specific about your financial affairs. Many great Bible leaders prayed for money. Jesus prayed that the 5,000 would be fed by looking up to heaven and giving thanks for the few loaves and fishes which were then multiplied to meet every need. This is the same as praying for money.
God never intended men to suffer in this lavish universe - we are fooling ourselves if we think that we must live in lack. Remember the promise “Ask and it shall be given you” (Matthew 7:7) - there is nothing hidden in this command. How about this from the Book of Job “If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure.” (Job 36:11) - we must obey the laws of the universe.
The biggest problem is that most of us do not ask “big enough” and we do not continue in prayer until it comes.
How to Demonstrate Money
You can mentally claim money, financial assets and rich supply if you wish to use a strictly mental method. Put this powerful statement with the mental picture of the specific amount desired “All financial doors are open, all financial channels are free and xxxx (the specific amount) now comes to me.”
It is useful to speak specific words of riches for yourself and your possessions. Declare often “I give thanks that I am now rich, well and happy and that my financial situation is in divine order. Every day in every way I am growing richer and richer.” Don’t be afraid to declare that “large sums of money”, “rich pleasant surprises”, and “rich appropriate gifts” are manifesting for you. Do NOT be vague about money unless you want money to be vague in its response to you.
Thinking in definite terms opens the way for definite results. Don’t limit your income by saying “just enough to get by”. Try this - make a postcard with this on it “Your money starts growing now. Your earnings double.”
Remember that money adores the prosperous attitude and responds appropriately to it.
