    Wealth relates to abundance of material possessions/resources; whereas prosperity deals with welfare which includes but not limited to wealth, health (physical and spiritual), marriage, academic achievements, etc. "Brethren, I wish that you may prosper in every way... and that your soul prospers" [3 John 1:2]

    No, one cannot say one is prosperous if one lacks financially; though, if one is not financially wealthy, one may be prosperous. One cannot be prosperous, as in having all that one requires, and lack financially, as in not have the finances one requires, unless one does not require finances, in which case one does not lack it, one just does not need it, as in it is not a requirement.

    Just imagine the 70 disciples Jesus sent out to "spread the prosperity around". They had no financial wealth whatsoever, but they were 'wealthy'.

    Being wealthy is just a way to quantify your prosperity.

    You are Prosperous through successful achievements. Successful completion of a measure goal with good/encouraging outcome. Reference to Psalm 1.. A righteous person shall be like a tree planted by river side.. everything he does shall prosper.
    Prosperity is equivalent to Success.

    You are wealthy when you have no lack or contented and comfortable to live within the limit of what you can achieve or acquire. Its not an outcome of something you work towards, like prosperity. Wealthiness is a state of being, the measure of wealth depends on individual. As long as you are not impoverish or deprived of things that makes you able to exist as human, you are wealthy.
