sysengr:Listen to Apostle Joshua Selman instead. I'm not his church member, never met him or know him in person but I can assure that he TEACHES the word of God and speaks of situations like yours and how to overcome it.

I've been through this phase before. I know what it means to be 9 months pregnant; and not knowing how or where money to buy baby things will come from. I've been without ordinary 10 naira for a whole week. I know what it means to have no idea what to eat to break my fast at 6 pm. I know what it means to have to wait for my daughter to return from school in the afternoon for me to have my first meal of the day by feeding on her left overs. I can go on and on. This experience was after experiencing wealth and abundance; and so I moved from "grace" to "grass"
What I Did
Okay so before highlighting the steps I took that led me out of that dark period of my life, it may be helpful to note that the experiences I described above is now a thing of the past 'cos right now...……….. you won't imagine I went through that phase in 2017 and 2018.
I'll find time to detail the practical steps I took later. The bulk of the work required to deliver the home is on the woman in times like this. This is the reason you are your husband's helpmeet. It was this realization that made me kickstart the steps I took
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by purpinkx(m): 6:08pm On Apr 18|
To anyone reading this, prayer works when you do the work.
From 2015 to late 2018, I had less than N20,000 in my account. I mean, in those 3 years the total amount I had in my name never exceeded that amount.
Things were tough with me and I was drowning in financial waters. Then something happened.
I stumbled upon a book that taught me something about manifesting my desires and using my mind in the right way.
“The science of getting rich - Walter Wallace”
From this book, I learnt that I was telling my VERY POWERFUL MIND that there are very few jobs, even for people with BSc and Msc, then imagine me with just programming skills and no certification.
I changed that mentality. I told myself there may be little opportunities in Nigeria, but I WILL definitely find freelancing opportunities online.
So I registered on PPH as a writer (yes, I learned programming and writing is a skill I picked up in school and the books I read. That's for those of you that write Facebook English and think it is cool).
There, I met a client that has been sending me writing jobs every month for the past one year. Now, my writing has really, really improved and I'm using this lockdown to start my own blog, so I can command more income.
From what I have made so far, I've stored 5 drums of palm oil now that the price is low. I learned to save and invest from reading books on finance and money management.
Was I lucky, yes! But, would I have been lucky if I didn't change my mentality? I doubt.
It all started when I came across a book, and decided to make time to read it. Since then I've read many books, some of my writing skills I picked up from reading.
I've read books that taught me things that seemed random but aren't.
I realized that success in life is predictable.
You can spare 2 week of your time and read that book I mentioned above, follow what it says, and also read “the secret - Rhonda Byrne”
Before you say “I'll buy the books when I have money”, there's an app on playstore called “anybooks” download and search for the book I mentioned. You can get the paper version later so you can highlight as you read.
I know you feel like you are at the bottom of the sea and drowning, but I have offered you a way out, a raft. Climb on it if you wish.
One thing you can do this night before you sleep is to take a book, make a list of the things you want and read it everyday. First thing when you wake and last thing before you sleep.
Then tell your mind (it is always listening) to change the things around you. Don't forget to wake up and do the work.
That, is the true way to pray!
If you think working systematically to put your life in order is hard work now that you are young, imagine what it'll be like when you hit 40, 50, and above.
Remember, “an excuse is just a very sophisticated lie”
I care about you, that's why I shared.

ThothHermes:How do you want her to tithe or sow seed when she's in desperate need of assistance?
As Christians, show me where Christ said it's "Very dangerous not to tithe"?
Any assistance she gets should be used to invest in a business venture that will yield profits to ultimately lead to taking care of her family. That's how her life will change.
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by ThothHermes: 9:34pm On Apr 18|
chijokz:Tithing is the way out of lack. I don't have to argue with you. There is a revelation component to kingdom mysteries.
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by ThothHermes: 9:38pm On Apr 18|
purpinkx:"There is a thinking stuff, from which all is made, which in it's original state, permeates and penetrates the interspaces of the universe..."
Not endorsing the book though.

You have confirmed what @ThothHermes said earlier. Since he mentioned it, downloaded one video. Will listen to more hopefully soon.
Thanks a lot
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by chijokz(m): 11:13pm On Apr 18|
ThothHermes:We don't have to argue. I just asked you for New Testament verses to buttress your tithing point and you didn't provide any.
In conclusion, we're all trying to assist her and her family out of their present situation.
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by 4tunebest(f): 11:20pm On Apr 18|
In the year 2017, I PRAYED, fasted, etc like I've never done before. I was determined to get out of that financial quagmire. However, there was no observable difference in the situation. Consequently, my new year resolution for the year 2018 was to change strategy and not expend energy in praying, fasting, etc like I did in 2017. I still engaged in praying/fasting in 2018, but not as intensively as I did in 2017. 3 months into the year 2018, God started moving, and before the end of that same year, my story changed forever. God MOVED.
The book: "Move that mountain", can't remember the name of the author (Nigerian) opened my eyes to certain realities which propelled me to take certain steps.
1. I stopped focusing on the challenges and started focusing on God. This was after I came to the realization that for every challenge, there is a glory/huge blessing God wants to release. The devil knows this and doesn't want the glory revealed; hence he prefers for us to focus on the problems; cos the more we fix our eyes on what's going on around us, the more blinded we are from the unlimited possibilities from above.
2. I came to the realization that dwelling on the problems means that I focus less on the mightiness of God; while focusing more on what the devil is capable of doing in my life. Worrying about the challenges meant that I didn't trust that God could solve the problems and I was subconsciously ascribing more power to the devil because I was focusing on the challenges.
3. I realized that because the devil has been, and is always an enemy of a Christian home, his plan was to frustrate me out of my husband's house, using lack as a weapon.
4. I realized that no one likes to stay wherever his enemy is being praised; no one likes to be ignored; no one likes to be treated as if he doesn't exist. Consequently, I started ignoring the devil by not worrying about my problems again, I started giving QUALITY praises to an enemy of the devil-God. I made it a sacrificial praise, such that my midnight prayers were replaced with midnight praises. I stopped midnight prayers. I started engaging in midnight praises.
5. I started having spiritual encounters where I was shown the source(s) of the challenges, including how to get out of it.
I'll find time to continue my piece tomorrow. However, I hope you've given your life to Christ. The approach I took can only work for those who are truly born-again, not just church goers. Because I remember having a dream where I was called My first name, and JESUS CHRIST was pronounced as my surname; after which I was given my benefit as His HEIR in that dream. This was what manifested in a series of life changing events in the physical realm.
I realized that the spiritual controls the physical. But more importantly, I can alter what happens in the spiritual by my physical activities. Once I alter the spiritual in this way, then this spiritual (that I have programmed) will manifest physically. Therefore, the physical steps I took worked in altering the spiritual atmosphere to work in my favour, which eventually translated in the physical.
STEP 1: Aggressive, Quality, Deep, Heart-felt midnight praises and dance to God. I started doing this for 20 minutes, later I progressed to 30 minutes, then 45 minutes, then 1 hour, etc. The more I engaged in it, the more I was able to spend more time in it.
I'll continue much later. Thanks

4tunebest:Hmmm. Touching story. Sorry dear, going through hard times with a child involved is short of words.
This is giving me hope that mine too will be thing of the past.
Honestly it's not easy not to talk of being close to delivery. I still trust God will make a way.
You are right about the woman to deliver her home. That's why I came here for people's advice cos my husband now is all about committing suicide which I keep talking him out of it and still praying to God.
Please I really need those steps you took.
Thanks a lot dear

purpinkx:This is also encouraging. I will get the books and do as you have said.
Two days ago, I was able to browse on Bible verses on financial prosperity, which I read morning and night.
Thanks so much. I appreciate
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by Apination(m): 1:30am On Apr 19|
chijokz:Its good to give, there's no one who has nothing to give. What most Christians fail to realise is that God isn't interested in your money but your TIME. Throughout Scripture, whenever the people got captured or sent into slavery it wasn't because they stopped giving food or offerings but that they have turned away from him by not giving their TIME and attention to him. God seeks relationships with his people, it's a matter of knowing what God requires that we give.
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by purpinkx(m): 7:39am On Apr 19|
I'm not here to dampen your faith in whatever you believe.
Let me ask you something,
Does a cook use garri turner to dish soup?
Does a tailor use a hammer to cut fabric?
Does a doctor use earphones to listen to heartbeat?
Does a Fisher man use hair net to catch fish?
I can go on and on.
You have money problems, it's not spiritual.
It's is financial.
Read your religious book to give you HOPE and FAITH that you have the power to do what you want, then start reading books on FINANCE to show you the way out.
A good place to start is the “Richest man in Babylon”
Just as you won't seek legal advice from a medical doctor. Don't read finance books written by any pastor, imam, etc. They have no business giving financial advice.
Even if they have sound advice to give, it won't be as deep as what you'll get from someone who specializes in making money.
See you at the top.
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by tripplephi: 1:38pm On Apr 19|
you are Emmanuella, right?
|Re: How Do I Pray My Family Out Of Stagnation by sysengr(f): 8:44pm On Apr 19|
purpinkx:Okay. I truly get your point. You are very correct.
Why I believe it's spiritual is that I have read few books on finances like the rich man in Babylon some years back but whenever we invest or do business it's not successful instead we begin to depend on people again.
So now we really want to go the spiritual way to find a final solution. We can't continue to depend on others forever even those that used to help are tired and we totally understand.
We want to be able to take care of our family, get jobs, invest in business to make profits like normal people out there.

There was no apparent reason to be grateful to God; however I had to think deep and eventually found the following reasons for my midnight praises:
***There was perfect health in my family; [b]no medical emergencies [/b]that will necessitate going about to borrow money from friends/family.
***We lived in a very large, well furnished 3-bedroom apartment; such that any one visiting us could never imagine the hard times we were going through.
***That God kept our secret that we were in extreme lack. These were the 3 major reasons for my midnight praises; there was no other thing to be grateful for.
I continued to give out of the little I had. There was a time all the money on me was four hundred and twenty naira; a neighbor approached me that the family had not eaten for days, and needed four hundred naira only to buy a paint of garri to feed the family. I released that money and was left with only 20 naira. I did it willingly, grateful to God that inspite of my lack, I was still able to meet someone else's needs. There was a time also after buying small food stuff, I divided it into 2 and gave an extremely needy person I knew. These 2 instances are few out of several other instances I gave to other people in need. I guess their heartfelt prayers after receiving, also worked for me one way or another.
I changed my prayer points. I am an addicted tither; however during this time, I could not pay any tithe (for over 1 year) 'cos no money was coming in, and the little coming in was not even enough to feed on. My only prayer became, "God bless me, so that I can start paying my tithe again". Bless me, so that I can give towards the development of the church again; Bless me, so I can be a blessing to others again. Nothing else mattered. I had seen it all. The worst had happened. I forgot about myself, my needs, and started focusing on the needs of the kingdom. Eventually, I discovered that the more I sought God, the more money looked for me. I didn't have to look for money. Money is now the least of my problems (Matt 6:31-33.."Seek ye first the kingdom of God"...) Indeed, other things were added unto me.
I started experiencing spiritual attacks and victories in my dream. There was a resistance from the devil to prevent me from being delivered out of penury (Matt 11:12). He tried all sort of terrible things, but I always overcame in the dream, and so I wake up to pray and enforce my victory. 1Jn 4:4. The devil is truly a toothless bulldog. He can't attack any true child of God; however, he devises different means to instil FEAR, without which he has no access, except you allow him through fear.
I'll find time to continue
