A Lottery Prayer That Works

I began this blog in 2011. Can you guess the top search term that lands readers here? It is “lottery prayer that works.” That phrase has shown up within the top search terms literally every week of this blog’s existence.

If that’s why you are here, then let me help you. Look at this awesome promise that Jesus made before He was arrested and crucified:

Believe me: I am in my Father and my Father is in me. If you can’t believe that, believe what you see—these works. The person who trusts me will not only do what I’m doing but even greater things, because I, on my way to the Father, am giving you the same work to do that I’ve been doing. You can count on it. From now on, whatever you request along the lines of who I am and what I am doing, I’ll do it. That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son. I mean it. Whatever you request in this way, I’ll do. John 14: 11-14

What do you think about that? Jesus said that we will do greater things than He did, and that He will give us whatever we ask in His name! I think that’s awesome!

But even in the world of believers, there’s a lot of skepticism about this promise. We will receive anything we pray for? Really? You hear people say, “Oh really. You’re telling me that if I pray, ‘God, I want a Mercedes Benz,’ then all I have to do is believe, and I’ll get it?” Or, “I can pray to win the lottery, and if I really believe I’m going to win, then I will?”

Those are good questions! But my question is a little different. My question is, “Why do you ask for those things?”

Why? That question stands in advance of every prayer.

I believe it is God’s will to prosper you, but prosperity doesn’t always mean money or property. God can prosper you with a healthy family, or peace at your job. There are so many ways that God can prosper you! In the end, though, they all have one thing in common. It’s an issue of the heart.

God looks at the heart of all people. Men and women alike, He looks at your heart. If you sit there and say, “God, I pray for a million dollars,” I’m going to guess that the first thing God’s going to ask is why you want a million dollars. If you want a million dollars so that you can be rich, then I don’t know if He’s going to prosper you in that way.

Jesus promises to answer your prayer and give you what you ask for because “that’s how the Father will be seen for who He is in the Son.” That’s the context of His promise. God will give you what you ask for because you are doing His will.

I pray for finances. I really do. I pray for them, and I believe I’m going to get them. I can’t necessarily tell you why God grants my prayers, but I can tell you the reasons in my heart for wanting finances. I can see all the good that I can do with them.

I think God looks at your heart when it comes to everything. If your prayer is birthed in sin, it will never happen. Why would God answer prayers birthed in sin? I believe God answers prayers that are birthed in the hope of bringing grace and faith and power. I believe God answers prayers that are birthed in the desire to empower people to believe in Him and love Him. If that’s your reason for asking, then yes, I fully believe that you’re going to receive what you pray for.

In other words, if you’re going to do God’s will with those lottery winnings, then pray for them with all your heart!

I’ll say more on this next time. See you Tuesday.

  4. Please help me to win 17 million euro on lottery . I need to buy a house and help my family . And help all the sick children and help all the deaf children . I would be very greatfull .thank you

  5. I desire to win the lottery to get out of poverty and help my family and church ministry. Poverty is an abomination and it is not the will of God for my life or anybody’s life for that matter. I would love to have the testimony that I owe no man or woman anything. This would be financially liberating for me. I just wanted to share.

  6. I pray for myself, my family and friends to receive a blessing of abundance… I am a winner in all things I do, and I prosper everywhere I turn. I have already in me inner peace of faith, love, and sharing. I do not speak of lack only that which is more, to better my quality of life… and through today’s prayers, I ask my Father the Most High God to open the flood gates to receive today’s winning Mega Million drawing, I carry with me an attitude of gratitude at all time. I am thankful…
    And so it is so…

  14. Very true. Thank you, my brother in Christ, for this message. I do pray to win the lottery also a lot, but it is not so that I can become rich. When I say that, I do not mean in the sense that it is just for the sake of money. My family has business debt that is in the hundred thousenths. Even my own personal debt, I am basically a quarter million in debt. Long story short, just a lot of bad decision making and undisciplined spending. I have already repented, and I believe my family as well has done the same thing. So, I only want to win the lottery to get out of debt and to have some money to also reinvest in our family business. Thanks again.
