Today, being Friday, many people receive their paychecks from their employers. It’s a funny thing, but I’ve found that money stretches further when it’s prayed over. So, in case you’d like to pray over your paycheck today, I wanted to offer this payday prayer.
If you’d like to ask God to bless your wages, pray this with me:
“Father God, I come to You in Jesus’ name.
Abba Father, thank You for the paycheck I received today. Thank You for giving me the power to get wealth. Thank You for confirming Your covenant with me by providing all my needs. Thank You for giving me the ability work and earn this paycheck.
Father, I confess that this money is Yours.
I choose here and now NOT to squat on it–not to sit on Your property when it doesn’t belong to me. I choose not to pretend like this money is mine when it’s actually Yours. Father, I acknowledge that this money is Yours. Furthermore, everything else I have is Yours. I confess that I am only a manager–a steward of what’s Yours–and not an owner of anything.
So Abba Father, Papa God …
Since You have given me this money to manage on your behalf, please show me what You want me to do with it.
You see the bills I have to pay. You see the needs we have for groceries, fuel in the car, and more. You see all of our family’s needs.
So Lord, please help me to make a spending plan for this money right now. Help me to obey You first and foremost by bringing you the tithe–the first 10%. I bring You the tithe, Lord. And because I am bringing You the tithe, I pray that You would open the windows of Heaven and pour me out so much blessing that Your provision overflows my need.
Also, Father, rebuke the devourer for my sake. Don’t let anything in my life be devoured by the enemy. Protect the results of my harvest. Bring me the fruit of my labor that Your Word guarantees. Let all nations call me blessed, and give me favor everywhere I go.

Thank You, Father, for the blessings You have promised to give me when I tithe.
After that, please show me how much to put back in savings; and finally, show me how to pay for all the bills I need to pay out of this money. Pay every bill that I have on time, Lord, and with more to spare. Stretch this money longer and further than I ever dreamed.
Lord, I speak to all the money You have commanded me to steward and I say:
- Money, you belong to Jesus, and I bind you to Him. You must behave according to Jesus’ will.
- Money, multiply, in Jesus’ name!
- Money, stretch as far as you need to stretch to cover all our family’s financial needs!
- Money, I notify you right now that you are to answer the needs I have written down in my family’s budget. You are not to answer any wasteful or unholy desires. You are to answer only the call of Father’s will for you.
- And finally, money: I command you in Jesus’ name to attract more money. Function as a seed that brings forth more fruit–more money–for my family’s needs and for the sake of the Gospel.
Father, please make me a good steward for You.
Help me to hear Your voice behind me saying “This is the way; walk in it;” and let me always obey You. Let me never turn to the right or to the left. Help me to obey You perfectly in regards to both this money You have entrusted to me AND in regards to everything else in my life. Help me to carry out Your exact instructions in every situation, and especially for the use of this money.
Finally, Abba Father, I pray You would get lots of glory from my life and stewardship. Glorify Your own name in me. Use me and the things You’ve entrusted to me to reach people and expand the inheritance of Jesus. Make me a generous giver according to Your will. Help me to hide Your Word in my heart, so I will not sin against You; and give me Your wisdom from above.
Thank You, Father God. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
Beloved friends, I encourage you to pray over your paycheck every time you get paid.
I feel that this is an opportune time in the spirit realm to pray more than ever over our finances. Praying over our income when we receive can be a huge part of that. So bookmark this page and come back as often as you need to (or, you can print it); and let’s petition Papa together to bless and stretchhhhhh our paychecks more than we could ever have dreamed.
