But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
God created business with the intention that mankind would learn to steward well. It is a chain reaction that works like this: produce, create, sell, and distribute wealth. This brings glory to God. He wants to be revealed as Creator, Provider, and Healer.
Here is how we can pray for the business sphere with included Scriptures.
- Pray that CEOs and those who are ruling in this area are kingdom-minded people who use their influence for good.
- Pray for those who rule in this sphere to be good stewards of everything God has given them.
- Pray for wisdom, integrity, generosity, and understanding that can only come from God.
- Pray that business owners would be lovers of God, more than lovers of money.
- Pray for an increase in businesses to create more jobs and benefit our economy.
- Pray that businesses would be givers and use their wealth to give back to the community, releasing the blessing of God.
- Pray for those in the workplace to be salt and light to co-workers.
- Pray for bold witnesses who will not bow to pressure and will not be afraid to speak up for righteousness’ sake.
PrayerLord, we thank You that You are our Provider, Healer, and Creator. You are delighted in us when we are good stewards. We pray, guide our hands, and direct our steps. Let your light shine on workers, businesses, business owners, tradesmen, and consumers alike. Pour out wisdom and creativity on the people to bring forth new ideas and create solutions to problems and needs of the people. Keep them from mammon; let them be generous, for You love cheerful givers. We pray for salvation for those at the very top of the business sphere, who have yet to know You–enlighten their understanding. Teach them the true meaning of prosperity, not just financial prosperity, but in all things. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
ActionIf you are an entrepreneur or are active in the marketplace, this is your sphere. Wherever you are called, you are called to represent Christ. You bring glory to God by using your gifts and resources here. Be wise. Be resourceful. Be salt and light. Lead and serve well.
