Is It Unchristian To Pray For Money?

Hi folks! I would really appreciate it if the bone crushing Christians in the House help me with this issue.I've always been the independent kind of girl who would rather die than to ask anyone for money.When i became born again,I noticed that it spilled over into my walk with God.I would heistate about asking him for money because I was always afraid that he would let me down.I pay my tithes and give offerings but i also try as much as possible to have a littel cash so i wont have to ask him.

Is it unchristian to ask God for a certain amount of money when you don't have it? Like if you were dead broke and you asked God for a certain amount by a certain day and you didn't get it,what are the factors that would have caused the delay in your prayer? Is there a process involved in asking him for money? I'm at a point where I want to trust him with all including my finances and I want to get it right, when it comes to money and God,what is the christian way to do things?

I dont think its unchristian to ask God for money but you (not God) might be testing your own faith by demanding it reach you by a certain day.

I also think its important to live within your means. Quite a lot of Christians dont do that but prefer keeping up with the Joneses even though they dont really know the Joneses source of income.

It's the same God and bible that says we should ask and it shall be given to us so i don't think it's too much. Although it depends on WHY u're asking and your faith level!

Ask the Lord for your daily bread. Pray the Lord's prayer. Don't be greedy, just ask him for enough to take care of your needs and the needs of your family or those whom you're responsible for. So no it is not wrong, infact you are to rely on him. So ask away.

There are different levels of truth in God. There are lesser truths and higher truth. In primary school, 1 minus 2 is imposible but in secondary school ,1 minus 2 has an answer which is -2. So it is in Christ. There i spiritual milk for bebes and strong meat for the mature ones. but they are all truths at different levels. A baby may beg and ask. but adults dont ask , they just collect.

Peter was writing to babies here because babies live on milk.

1 Peter 2:2

   As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

But check Paul out here.

Hebrews 5:13-14

   For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. [14] But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

"Give us this day our daily bread is baby prayer" but it can sell for a while. Soon it wont work again.  There is nothing you want to ask God he has not given you in Christ.

1 Cor. 3:21

   Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

Mark 11:24

   Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

So you must have faith in the finished work of christ that you have an inheritance. You draw ffrom your heavely account with your mouth rcognising you are blessed already,God knows your need and has mad provisions for all your needs. You call forth what you need. " i receive my car this year  in the name of Jesu"  You Thank God For them " Father I thank you,I have my admission in Jesus name" etc.¦
