40 Days of Prayer to Change America
(Day 11: Finances)
"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
--- Matthew 6:21
What are we seeking as a nation? God or gold? We've often been known as a nation interested more in money and things than in God and people. This attitude has infected the church as well as the nation. Undoubtedly, the love of money is a major idol in the U.S. standing in the way of another great move of God in our midst.
- Ask the Lord to reveal clearly to you where your treasure is.
- In Jesus' Name, tear down the idol of Mammon (money) that has taken up residence in America.

Heavenly Father, this world puts so much emphasis on material gain that it's so hard not to get caught up in worldly things. This world teaches us that to be successful we must be wealthy with money and material possessions. Lord, help me to stay away from these things the world teaches. Remind me that worldly riches can disappear in any moment but the riches of Your Kingdom is eternal. It is Your heavenly riches that gives us joy, peace and happiness. Lord, I do not want these worldly riches. Lord, I am willing to give up all my worldly possessions for You. Amen.
