Little Book, Big Prayers: Career and Finances


To follow is an excerpt of the Introduction to the third “Little Book, Big Prayers” 4-book series scheduled for release October 27th.

There are many devices in a man’s heart;
nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,
that shall stand.
–Proverbs 19:21

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and of
the fear of the LORD;
–Isaiah 11:2

God is concerned about your soul and your spirit. Did you know that He is concerned about your career and your finances as well? They are the source of your seed. Your seed is what you do with your time, how you utilize your talents, how you serve others, and what you do with your money or other valuable resources. There are challenges, trials, and tribulations that confront us everyday. But God has addressed each and everyone of them in His word. He does not intend for you to struggle continuously.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper
and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
–3John 1:2

God has a purpose and a plan for your life. That includes what you do with your life and the resources that are necessary to sustain you. Praying to receive your portion of the covenant blessings of God is available to everyone of His sons and daughters. Through the enabling assistance of the Holy Spirit, He teaches you how to be successful and shift out of the desolate places you may be in right now.

If you are in a place that lacks prayer or communion between you and God, then you are living without direction. Is the expectation of good things absent from your life? Is your everyday mundane or exasperating? Is a hopeless present and future all you see? Well, when you choose to cooperate with the plan of God by declaring the word of God over your life, over your career, over your finances, then you won’t have time to focus on past failures, current struggles, or a hopeless future.

Prayer helps you change your thinking and your value system. Your value system is what you believe about yourself and others, and what you believe about God. Prayer gives you access to kingdom blessings so you can think/believe, act and speak differently. Wouldn’t you prefer to associate with people who are walking in their God-given purpose and destiny? You too can walk in what has been established for your life–the plan and purpose of God. And it is possible for you to become a person who can encourage, inspire, motivate, and mentor others.

Keep therefore the words of this covenant,
and do them, 
that ye may prosper
in all that ye do.
–Deuteronomy 29:9

Only be thou strong and very courageous,
that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law,
which Moses my servant commanded thee:
turn not from it to the right hand or to the left,
that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
–Joshua 1:7

Your words, thoughts/beliefs and actions dictate to your future. The scriptures say:

“You will eat the fruit of your lips.” — Your words.
“So as a man man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” — Your thoughts/beliefs
“You shall reap what you sow.” — Your actions.

This book will help you exercise your faith to experience the transforming power of God over your circumstances. Declare the scripture-based affirmations that God is the Lord, He is your source, and you choose His will for your life. Gain more faith in His promises of protection, provision, healing and deliverance. Through prayer you have power to change what you think, say and do in any circumstance. God wants you to experience spiritual growth and make better decisions about your career, your finances and your life.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
–Psalm 1:3

“Embracing Change”


(Excerpted from the Introduction of
He That Healeth Thee
by Christine Brooks Martin)

I know the anguish that comes with depression. But when I yielded to the power and might of a loving God, He broke the bondage and captivity of that experience off of my life. When I sincerely desired and accepted His hand, always extended to those who want Him, I was healed. Every thought or perception that fed depression was replaced with liberty and tears of joy. I was able to forgive and love myself. Then I was able to forgive and release those who hurt, rejected and abandoned me. As I obeyed God by embracing changes to different areas of my life, I had better experiences and met new people. Each time I reflect on how He changed my life, I praise Him even more. I clap my hands and I dance with joy to celebrate the liberty I have through Jesus Christ. My mouth is no longer gagged spiritually, and my hands and feet are no longer bound. My mind is free to think of what is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, noteworthy and of a good report (Philippians 4:8).

The whole earth reels daily from the effects of prevalent evil. The adversary to our soul loves to fill our hearts and minds with doom and gloom. Sometimes it seems as though we’re kept up-to-date on more of the bad news than the good. And it will be that way as long as stuff happens and we make ourselves accessible and accommodating to it. God performs miracles in the lives of people everyday, and we might hear about a few instances on occasion. But you must be proactive in your healing process. When you believe and fully embrace the love and word of God, your mind and heart can undergo the necessary changes to affect your life. You can get rid of thoughts, emotions, memories, or imaginations and behavior that are destructive to your overall health and well-being. The scriptures say, what a man thinks in his heart, so is he. When you embrace the Lord and the scriptures, you will have a confession of faith that is Yes and Amen.

The scriptures also declare that you will eat the fruit of your lips. So if you say or believe the challenges in your life are worsening, the universe will bring what you say or believe into existence. I’m not suggesting that you lie to yourself, but instead, say what God says about Himself and about you. He said you are healed body, soul and spirit. You are healed of all manner of sickness, diseases and infirmities. You are healed of depression, the seed and source of it, and you are not forsaken or alone.

I will decree in your behalf that you are delivered from the yoke of bondage, every fetter and stock of iron. Any blindfold, pit and trap, every obstacle, net and stumbling block, and work of evil is removed. Evil words spoken to you or about you are canceled out. Every evil thought from others, evil thoughts you think or believe about yourself are nullified and void. You will not lack financial help or necessary resources for your livelihood. You will not be defeated. You will not be destroyed. You shall live and not die and declare the works of the Lord (Psalm 118:17).
