How do I ask God for abundance?
Asking God to walk in His abundance is perfectly acceptable if your heart is right. It's your motive that determines if the abundance prayer is acceptable to pray. Look at the scriptures on this page and let them root in your heart. What would you do with the increase God brought into your life? Would you keep it to yourself or bless others. That is the question.
Is it OK to pray for prosperity?
If you boldly step out and pray for God to prosper you that is fine if you are asking properly. If your reason for asking is because you want to be blessed so you can be a blessing then that is appropriate to pray. Praying to become rich just to be wealthy is not the place from which to pray such a prayer for abundance.
