Prayer for Taxpayers
I’ve been distracted by taxation during the past few weeks, so decided that tonight would be a great time to write a prayer for taxpayers. This is especially for those who are feeling over-taxed and for those who tend to procrastinate and do their tax computations at the last minute.
Heavenly Father, I ask that you help those who are being taxed to easily and joyfully complete their accounting and tax form submissions on time. Let them be comforted in knowing that no matter how much their government takes from them, you will assist them to meet their daily needs if they ask for your help. Let them know that there is no difficulty You cannot resolve.
Thank you, Abba, for guiding us in our efforts to establish and maintain financial prosperity so we can live comfortably in this world that requires so much thought about money and how it is used. Help us place money in the right perspective in our thinking, and know it is not the true goal in life. Let all human beings live in comfort and prosperity, without greed, and with spiritual understanding of their financial situations.
Help all those who are suffering with taxation, and strengthen those who rush to complete tax forms at the last minute. Help them with peace of mind, financial skills, and confidence to get the work done quickly and easily. Help them organize their lives and finances so in all subsequent years allotted to them for earth dwelling life, they are able to file their taxes much earlier in the year.
And as for all who are worried about paying more than they can afford to satisfy current taxation laws or expectations, surround them with comforting thoughts of well-being in your loving care. Let them lay down this burden at Your feet knowing You are able to care for them and help them through anything that may distress or challenge them.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your kindness and generosity.
In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Amen.
