As business owners and leaders, it is important to seek Jesus for wisdom, direction and the prosperity of our business. Logan Bloom, author of Praying God’s Word for Your Business, says “Jesus is eager to talk to us about our business.”
Here Bloom offers two prayers from Praying God’s Word for Your Business, to pray out of Ephesians 1:17-19.
“[I pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might.”
Heavenly Father, Thank you for your goodness to me. You deserve all of the glory for the growth of my business. Fill me with your Spirit today and give me your wisdom for my work. Help me not to lean only on my own understanding but to trust your ways. I want to see your perspective and be led by your Spirit in every decision.
Give me and my employees the spirit of revelation in the knowledge of you. Help us to grow closer to you and to see your work in us. Empower us to do business not only for you but with you. Use us to draw others to you and be glorified by our work this week. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
Heavenly Father, Thank you for your provision this week. Open my eyes to see where you are at work. Help me to recognize your gentle leading and provision. I don’t want to miss any opportunity that you send my way. Show me the hope of your calling for me and my business. Make my company a conduit for hope in people’s lives.
Help me to understand how my business can be part of your greater purpose in my sphere of influence. Remove anything that would distract me from your calling and provide for our needs according to the riches of your glorious inheritance. I commit my business to you anew today. Be glorified in my work this week. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
