Among people, there is always the need to go to a supreme being to bless money. In this post we will refer specifically to the prayer to bless the money that is taken to the church storehouse as a tithe, we will present examples of prayers for the blessing of money and we will review some important and interesting aspects of this type of prayer.
Prayer to bless money
It is a daily practice among believers to bless the money, the fruit of their work, not only so as not to waste it, but also so that it multiplies and is not lacking.
That is why we go to God to pour out his blessings on the income obtained and also to bless the portion that the faithful usually give as an offering, in gratitude, to the church for some favor achieved or simply to achieve the blessing of the Holy Father of the tithe done.
As we know in ancient times it was customary to pay with merchandise, which was normally grains, for a job done and to protect said merchandise a special space was set up to store it.
That storage place was called an alfolí, which was a kind of silo or granary, in which corn, food and other provisions were deposited.
This concept of deposit or storage was transferred to the religious sphere, with which the offerings of the parishioners began to be placed in the storehouse of the church.
That was the practice followed by the believers of the people of Israel, who placed their offerings and tithes derived from their crops in the storehouse as a sign of gratitude.
The devotees when making the delivery of the offering in the storehouse, pray to the Holy Father so that he blesses the offering and also blesses the offerer asking to continue receiving his favors.
This storehouse today has retained that name.

Oh Holy Father, Creator of the entire Universe!
I come to you, Heavenly Father, to first express my gratitude for bringing me here, for blessing my life, my home, my family, and for allowing me to be ever closer to you and your word.
I want to ask your forgiveness if I have failed in something, if I have not duly fulfilled your word and if I have carried out actions that are not to your liking. I ask you to forgive me.
Through this heartfelt prayer, I want to ask for your blessing for the money that I have been able to receive honestly, as a result of my merchandise sales.
You know that I do it in the most honest way possible, following your divine teachings of not mistreating others, but rather being at their service.
Pour out, Lord Almighty, all your blessings on this money that I give to the church storehouse and allow it to serve your Sacred Purposes.
Also bless that money so that I can continue to receive this income thanks to your divine intercession and give me abundance, prosperity and the necessary resources to lead a dignified life and be able to satisfy the needs of all my relatives.
Allow also, Almighty Father, that this blessing be wasted so that I can continue contributing to the storehouse larger amounts of money that I humbly allocate as a tithe.
Do, Beloved Lord, that it multiply and serve the best benefit, not only of the church, but also of those who will benefit from the charitable works that will be done with these tithes, which I fervently pray will be of your pleasure.

Why bless money?
We all know how hard and difficult it is to earn a daily livelihood, since it requires sacrifice and time.
If you are an employee, you should try not to lose your job, since it is the one that provides the daily, fortnightly or monthly salary that we charge. But it turns out that as soon as it is collected, the money quickly and mysteriously disappears.
The same happens to those who work independently. It is a lot of effort that he uses to obtain the income, but it does not pay him enough to cover all the expenses.
That is why it is customary to bless money, so that it satisfies basic needs, so that it yields as much as possible and also so that it multiplies.
Many go to the prayer to the Supreme God directly or to the Guardian Angel, to the Virgin Mary or some saint to intercede before God the Father to bless the income that is earned.
It has been proven that praying with true faith can have an effect and create the monetary abundance that we are requesting and thus be able to pay debts and cover needs and tastes.
It is said, then, that blessing money generates abundance, makes it easier to achieve goals and objectives and learn how to invest to multiply it.

The Bible and the tithe to the storehouse
Tithing is a precept that comes from the Old Testament and that, in addition, was also a legal requirement, by which the Israelite people had to offer the temple 10% of their crops, as well as the cattle they raised.
We see this expressed in Leviticus, verse 27:30, which indicates that there is a tithe of the product of the field, which must be consecrated to the Lord. Likewise, Numbers, verse 18:26, indicates that of the tithes of the Levites, a tithe of those tithes was to be offered.
For its part, Deuteronomy 14:23 also indicates that the tenth part of the wine, wheat and oil and of the flock will be eaten in the presence of the Lord. Likewise, the 2nd letter of Chronicles 31:5 ratifies it, which refers to how the Israelites abundantly fulfilled the tithe that was requested of them.
In fact, historically it is said that as part of the law that was expressed throughout the Old Testament, a differentiation was made between the types of tithes that should be taken to be kept in the storehouse of the temple. Thus it is pointed out in the Scriptures that three tithes were distinguished; namely:
- The first tithe, which was intended for the Levitical servants of the priests.
- The second tithe was called the festival tithe, so it did not need to be taken to be kept in the temple storehouse.
- The third tithe, which was the poor’s tithe, was also not taken to the temple in Jerusalem.
This would have made a total of approximately 23.3 percent, from which the church benefits.
For some scholars of the subject, the tithe of the Old Testament was taken as a method of imposing taxes with which the needs of the priests and the Levites of the Mosaic system, in force at that time, which regulated who, how and how much, were satisfied.
As for the New Testament, nowhere has been found that commands, or even recommends that Christians should submit to a legalistic system of tithes.
There is, therefore, in the books of the New Testament no section that stipulates any percentage of the income that should be set aside as a tithe to take to the storehouse.
It is only pointed out that something “as it has prospered” be set aside to take to the temple storehouse. Thus, it can be read in the 1st letter of Corinthians, verse 16: 2, which speaks that each one should set aside some money according to his income to avoid making collections.
In this regard, the Christian church has fundamentally used the percentage of 10% specified in the Old Testament, pointing out that this would be the “recommended minimum” for Christians who made offerings to the temple.
Rather, the New Testament focuses on pointing out the importance and benefits that giving generates in the person, so that he feels motivated, he could make his contribution according to his condition and possibilities. It is pointed out there that what can be given should be given.
This implies that sometimes giving more than a tithe, other times it may mean giving less. That will depend on the resources that the believer has, as well as the needs of the church.
To estimate more specifically how much can be given, the believer is asked to pray diligently in order to seek and obtain God’s wisdom on what to give as a tithe, as well as on how to participate with the church with his contribution and define When should you give?
This is how James highlights it in 1:5, where he emphasizes that we must resort to the wisdom of God, who will give it to us generously.
In this sense, the Bible teaches us, above all, that tithes and offerings must be given for pure reasons, for the service that this implies and, furthermore, with an attitude of adoration to God, for his eternal glory.
In the 2nd letter of Corinthians, in verse 9:7, the love that God feels for the giver who with joy, not sadness, makes his offering is expressed.
In most of the mentions of the tithe in the Holy Scriptures, it consisted only of food or animals and that, in general, it was in the place where one lived. That is why the mention of the storehouse is not accidental. This is because it refers to a silo or barn, with the strict purpose of being for social and food use.
It is, therefore, an ancient precept, which has generated different interpretations within the Christian environment.
And what did Jesus think about the tithe? In this regard, the evangelist Luke in 18:10-14 highlights the parable of the Pharisee man and the publican in which Jesus shows us at that time a tithe of everything the person earned was given.
Thus, we see that the tithe was valid in the New Testament, but it was not taxable or imposed and applicable both to the people of Israel and to the Christian church.
The tithe with Jesus, was no longer done out of obligation, but is done out of love, as an attitude that springs from the heart, just as the patriarchs did before the law and as the current regenerated church should do.
