Every human being is uniquely gifted and different from the next person. In the world where we find ourselves today, we are separated by various things like our culture, worldview, and our personal bias. However, there is one common goal and desire that every person on planet earth, whether young or old, shares—the desire to SUCCEED.
No one wants to fail in life. We all have a desire for success, and so many people devised different methods that will help them attain success, whether legit or improper, but the only blessings that add no sorrow is the one that comes from God. That is while I have compiled for your edification some powerful prayers for success.
What is success? Success is not just about how high you climb but also what happens when things are at their lowest point.
Achieving success in life means different things for each individual.
God desires that we succeed and prosper in all good works. The bible in 3 John says, ‘Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.’ We see in this scripture that God wants us to succeed. He doesn’t just want us to succeed, but he wants us to live in good health..
The scripture mentioned above highlights three key areas God wants us to succeed in;
- Our earthly walk – this constitutes our finances, careers, and every other thing we put our hands to do.
- Our health – God wants our health to flourish and thrive. It is highly important to know that one of the key areas to succeed is our health. This is why you find scriptures and testimonies of healings and divine health scattered all over the bible.
- Our Soul – God desires that we grow up spiritually and into maturity. When we do, we are in alignment with the will of God and are continually led by his Spirit.
When we prosper in our Spirit, soul, and body, then are we truly successful.
The bible tells us that true success is found in God, and He is the only one who gives us the power and enables us to succeed. Joshua 1:8 says, ‘This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.’
We see here that the premise of having not just success but good success is meditating on the word of God and letting His word take preeminence in our lives.
Deuteronomy 8:18a says, ‘But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth.
True success is found in God. Outside of God, we fail. It is important that we not just plan to succeed but also pray to succeed.
