ECONOMY

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

—Phil. 4:19 (NIV)

America's economy has declined at a rapid pace in recent years. The housing market has plummeted, stocks have spiraled, major industries have neared implosion and unemployment has soared. As believers, however, our trust is in God and not our current resources—whether in a recession or a boom. We remember how Christ provided for the multitude using only two fish and five loaves of bread. We can't forget how God provided for the widow in 2 Kings 4. And we know God can change our economy in a blink of the eye—all for His glory.

  • Pray that our government and industry leaders will gain wisdom to create godly legislation to revitalize the economy.
  • Pray that the church would trust in God's provision regardless of the economy.
