Praying for "Clean Balance Sheets"

Found it! But we feel a bit dirty about it:
Prayer for the nation: inaugural benediction
scbcbaptistpress.org (01.20)
So in his Inaugural Benediction, Kirbyjon Caldwell, senior pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, prayed for the following:

"God, forgive us for becoming so ensnarled in petty partisan politics that we miss Your glory and block our purpose. Deliver us from the evil one, from evil itself and from the mere appearance of evil.

"Give us clean hearts, so that we might have clean agendas, clean priorities and programs and even clean financial statements.

"Now, unto You, O God, the One who always has been and always will be, the one King of kings and the true power broker, we glorify and honor You.

Respecting persons of all faiths, I humbly submit this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen."
"and even clean financial statements"??? What the fuck? Sorry, we know a thing or 2 about religion but praying for 'clean financial statements' strikes us as pretty fucking weird.
