For Our Efforts at Getting and Staying Debt Free


#1

My husband and i have recently been going through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Univerisity Online program. We are following the baby steps and are planning a garage sale and my husband is going to participate in a men’s health study…basically we are doing what we can to get some more money coming in to pay off our debt.

Please pray for us that we can maintain our intensity and focus to complete these steps as quickly as possible. We pray that our children learn from us and never know the bondages of debt.

Almighty, everlasting God,
Give this family the strength and courage to persevere until the last penny is paid. Give patience to those to whom they are in debt, and let them not treat them unjustly. Help them have great confidence in You and in the workings of Your providence, trusting that You will always direct things to their greatest good.Make them also fully realize that no debt to their fellowmen can begin to equal the debt that we owe You on account of our sins, to say nothing of the immense debt we owe You for the gifts of Your Divine grace.
These we could never pay at all but for the coming of Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
To Him be all honor and thanksgiving, now and forever.

Amen.

Our Father, which art in Heaven
Hollowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us

Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil

Amen

The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen

Here’s a prayer for you:

*Almighty, everlasting God,
we beg of You to help us soon to pay off our debts to our fellowmen.
Give us strength and courage to persevere until the last penny is paid.
Give patience to those to whom we are in debt,
and let them not treat us unjustly.
Help us have great confidence in You and in the workings of Your providence,
trusting that You will always direct things to our greatest good.

Make us also fully realize that no debt to our fellowmen
can begin to equal the debt that we owe You on account of our sins,
to say nothing of the immense debt we owe You
for the gifts of Your Divine grace.
These we could never pay at all but for the coming of Your Son,
our Lord, Jesus Christ.
To Him be all honor and thanksgiving, now and forever.

Amen.

I will be praying for you! :slight_smile:
