Praying For The Economy


Prayer For The Economy Of This Nation

Our Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus we come to you on behalf of our economy. You are the only good, true and living God who is the creator and preserver of all things. All things were created by You and for your pleasure they are created.

This nation of (Jamaica) will not go under, we will not suffer for lack, because it is in You we live and move and have our being.

You are the same God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The same God of Joseph during the time of Pharaoh King of Egypt. When there was an impending famine, you selected a man to prepare for seven years of famine.

As your Word says in Genesis 41: 33-57: – “Now let Pharaoh look for a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh take action to appoint overseers in charge of the land, and let him exact a fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven years of abundance.

Then let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and store up the grain for food in the cities under Pharaoh’s authority, and let them guard more.

Let the food become as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will occur in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not perish during the famine.”

Now the proposal seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants. Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are.

You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you.” Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

Then Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put the gold necklace around his neck. He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, “Bow the knee!”

And he set him over all the land of Egypt.

Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.

Now Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh, king of Egypt.

And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt. During the seven years of plenty the land brought forth abundantly. So he gathered all the food of these seven years which occurred in the land of Egypt and placed the food in the cities; he placed in every city the food from its own surrounding fields.

Thus Joseph stored up grain in great abundance like the sand of the sea, until he stopped measuring it, for it was beyond measure.

Now before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph, whom Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore to him. Joseph named the firstborn Manasseh, “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”

He named the second Ephraim, “For,” he said, “God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.” When the seven years of plenty which had been in the land of Egypt (Jamaica) came to an end, and the seven years of famine began to come, just as Joseph had said, then there was famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt (Jamaica) there was bread.

So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, you shall do.”

When the famine was spread over all the face of the earth, then Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians; and the famine was severe in the land of Egypt.

The people of all the earth came to Egypt (Jamaica) to buy grain from Joseph, because the famine was severe in all the earth.

We declare that this nation of (Jamaica) will be blessed because we obey the voice of God, we obey the commands of God. We love, reverence, respect and venerate the God of Moses who wrote in the book of Deuteronomy 28: 1-13:

“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 

And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. 

Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.  Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock.  Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.  Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.  The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And he will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. 

The Lord will establish you as a people holy to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. 

And all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.

And the Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your livestock and in the fruit of your ground, within the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 

The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 

And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, being careful to do them”.

We will continue to be the head and never the tail, we are going up, not down, we are victors not victims in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

I declare and decree that we are blessed and being abundantly blessed by God who revealed Himself through His Son Jesus Christ as recorded by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation 1: 1…. 

“The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.

To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood……” Hallelujah !

We will always remember to look to you our Jehovah Shammah, we trust in you always because it’s You Lord our God, who gives us power to get wealth, that You may confirm Your covenant that You swore to our fathers, as it is this day.

And we will use our wealth to advance your kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.  We recognize that everything we possess comes from you. As Ecclesiastes 5: 19 says “Everyone also to whom God has given wealth and possessions and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot and rejoice in his toil—this is the gift of God”.

We will not fear, we will not be afraid, because our God is our rock, our strength, our strong foundation, our defense, our provider, and all our needs are supplied. Because Jehovah Rohi is our shepherd, we shall not want any good thing. 

I declare that the economy of this nation of (Jamaica) will grow in double digits every year. The people will become more industrious. Entrepreneurship will become the normative activity in every community in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Natural resources will be discovered in the earth in this blessed land, because we believe and embrace and live your word as recorded in 2Chronicles 7: 14 “ If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 

Your word is forever settled in heaven oh Lord, and we are confident that you who have started a good work in us, will carry us to its completion. 

At the same time we will be careful to manage our possession and not let our possession manage us.  As we heed the words of Jesus who said, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Instead we will obey your word as recorded in Proverbs 3: 9-10 “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.”

Thank you Lord for hearing the cry from our hearts, and the prayer from our lips, so that this nation of (Jamaica) under God will increase in beauty, fellowship and prosperity, and play her part in advancing the welfare of the whole human race in Jesus Name, so let it be, so it is and so shall it be.
