Prayers For Advancement

Updated: Jun 30, 2021

We all want to advance and make good progress in life. As a matter of fact, God’s plan for His children is that they advance, and become more glorious by the day.

The Bible says in Proverbs 4 verse 18:

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day (King James Version).

Jesus taught about the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25: 14 – 30). He likened the kingdom of heaven to a man who gave his servants goods or talents of varying amounts and then went on a long journey. He expected all of the servants to trade with the goods/talents. When it came time to give account, the servants who received five talents and two talents respectively provided evidence that they had traded with their talents and in fact doubled it. The Lord rewarded them by promoting them and giving them more.

However, the man was unhappy with the one servant who received one talent and did nothing with it. This shows that God wants us to use what He has given to us to produce results, and to make progress and advancement.

While you are using the resources, talents, goods, and gifts that God has given you, there are prayers you can pray to ensure that nothing hinders your advancement, and that you make significant progress. It is God’s will for His children to advance and make progress. These prayer points will help you obtain empowerment for success and advancement.

Before you begin, read the prayer points and all the scriptures attached to each prayer, and meditate on the scriptures. Pray all prayers in the Name of Jesus. Read Matthew 7: 7 – 11 and John 16: 23 - 24
