way towards a restored relationship with the Father and the management of our money and possessions. You might want to pray something like the following: “Dear God, forgive me for serving another master. Forgive me for trusting in other sources when you are the Source. Forgive me for my selfishness, pride and covetousness. Forgive my ‘fear of lack’ ruling my life. Forgive me for not surrendering my money and possessions to your Lordship and leading. Please forgive me for listening to the unholy spirit of mammon. Lord, I ask you to break that spirit off my family, my descendants, and myself. Wash me clean from any lingering influences or affects from being under this spirit’s control. Set me free from any love of money rooted in my heart. Help me this day to walk according to your Word’s directions in the area of financial stewardship, led by your Spirit in how to manage my money and possessions, wisely and generously, being an extravagant giver to the kingdom of God. Amen.” Repentance requires an intentional ‘turning away’ or doing things differently. We need to ask the Lord for His help in this process. 3 2 | u n m a s k i n g m a m m o n Unmasking_Mammon_book_4.5.indd 32 2018-07-11 7:41 AM
