August 26: A Prayer for Business Leaders in Our Community

Almighty Father, we thank You for providing for us, during these tough economic times.  Thank You for being the source of our supply.  We thank You for taking care of us and supplying all of our needs from Your glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.  Father, You created the heavens and the earth and everything in it.  You give breath to everyone and life to everyone who walks the earth.  We will praise Your mighty deeds, O Sovereign Lord.  We will tell everyone that You alone are just.  We praise You, Lord!  Father God, we are joyful because we fear You, Lord, and delight in obeying Your commands.  We are blessed to be Your children.

Heavenly Father, we expect business leaders in our community to honor Your Word and live by Your precepts.  We command light to shine in the darkness for the Godly.  We declare that they are generous, compassionate, and righteous. Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly. Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered.  During the current economic difficulties in our nation and around the world, we decree prosperity for our community.  We decree that the merchants in our community will not fear bad news; they confidently trust You, Lord, to care for them.  They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.  They share freely and give generously to those in need.  Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.

Holy Spirit, touch the hearts of the people in our community to support these businesses. Help our business leaders to establish fair and honest business practices so that the residents in our community will enjoy doing business with them. Show the owners and managers new and creative ways to increase their revenue without taking advantage of their customers. Convict the hearts of business owners in all communities who treat their employees and customers poorly. Holy Spirit, help the employees to be diligent, hard working individuals who will work as unto You instead of to man.

Make a list of small businesses in your community and begin to support them.

Righteous Father, forgive the business leaders in our community for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your leadership for their businesses. Forgive those who do not trust in You and Your business principles; but lean on their own understanding. Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit. Forgive those who have not treated their employees and customers fairly.  Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for the community they live in.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the business leaders in our community of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive.  (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help the business leaders in our community not to yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

May 28: A Prayer for Our Business and Retail Leaders

Glorious Father, we thank You for blessing our business and retail community throughout the years.  Thank You, for opening doors of opportunity that have produced profit and employment. Thank You for increasing economic development in our city. Lord, Your Kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations.  You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do.  You help the fallen and lift those bent beneath their loads.  The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it.  When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.  We bless and praise Your holy Name!

Almighty Father, we declare that Your Word will be operative in the lives of our business and retail leaders and in the economic development of our city.  Father, we confess that our business and retail leaders are blessed and we expect favor to surround them like a shield. As our business and retail leaders commit their works to You, their plans will succeed. The Christian business and retail leaders in our city will continue to seek Your Kingdom above all else, and live righteously, and we know that You will give them everything they need for their business.  We declare that they will honor You with their wealth and with the best part of everything they produce, then their barns will be filled with grain and their vats will overflow with good wine. Lord, as our business and retail leaders walk uprightly and do what is right, no good thing will be withheld from them. By faith, we decree that they will treat their employees and customers with dignity, fairness and respect. We expect You to look upon the economic development in our city favorably and bless our city to be fruitful.

 

List the names of two businesses and retailers in your community and pray for them:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, please fill our business and retail leaders with Your wisdom, understanding, counsel, and power. Give them dreams and visions that exceed their expectations and provide them with the resources they need to successfully accomplish Your purpose(s) for their businesses. Father, encourage potential business and retail leaders and entrepreneurs to write down Your vision for their businesses and make it plain in a business plan so that they and their investors can implement it. We ask You to reveal new revenue streams within the business and retail community. Lord, please continue to bless our city so that it will reflect Your glory and benefit the people living in it.

 

Merciful Father, forgive our business and retail leaders for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive those who have not been diligent in seeking Your leadership for their business. Forgive those who do not trust in You, but lean to their own understanding. Forgive those who have compromised Your Word in order to make a profit.  Forgive those who have not treated their employees and customers fairly. Forgive those Christian business and retail owners who have not been faithful in giving their tithes and offerings. Forgive those who have not properly taken care of or shown respect for the community they live in. Forgive those of us for not supporting those businesses You have established in our communities. Holy Spirit, remind our business and retail leaders of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.

 

Holy Spirit, help our business and retail leaders to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Sovereign Lord, You are the King of glory.  You are the Lord, strong and mighty; the Lord invincible in battle.  You are the King of Glory, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is Your Name!  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

February 14: A Prayer for the State of Texas

Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your tender mercies and loving-kindness towards the City of Houston.  Thank You for the bountiful blessings You have given to us.  Thank You for the state of Texas.  Thank You for uniting the Christians within our state.  Lord, no pagan god is like You, our Lord.  None can do what You do!  All the nations You made will come and bow before You; they will praise Your holy Name.   You are great, and perform wonderful deeds.  You alone are God.   Lord, You are good and Your faithful love endures forever.

Glorious Father, we declare that the state of Texas belongs to You and that it is You who will cause prosperity to overflow in our communities and cities. We decree that justice will run down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream within the political, judicial, and educational systems in our state.  We commit to praying for those who are in authority over us; Governor Greg Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Mayor Sylvester Turner, the city council, and all business, civic and community leaders.  As we do this, we expect to live peaceful and quiet lives marked by Godliness and dignity.  We declare that the righteous in our city and state will be called priests of the Lord; ministers of You, our God.  We will feed on the treasures of the nations and boast in their riches.  Instead of shame and dishonor, the residents of Texas will enjoy a double share of honor.  We will possess a double portion of prosperity in our land, and everlasting joy will be ours.

Holy Spirit, show me how to pray specifically for the needs of my community:

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Rise up, O God, in Texas and scatter Your enemies.  Let crime, murder and lawlessness be scattered. Let homelessness, unemployment and corporate greed be scattered.  Holy Spirit, fill the halls of the schools in our state so that our children and youth will be safe and will obtain a quality education.  Father, please open doors for economic increase within our communities.  Help the homeowners in Texas to successfully maintain their property and pay their mortgages and taxes on time.  Let equality and justice flow through the Medical Center so that everyone receives quality, affordable health care.  Let Your perfect love and peace preside over our city and state.  Holy Spirit, help Texas to stand as a beacon of light and hope for the nation to see what a Godly state looks like.

Righteous Father, forgive the people of our state for hypocrisy, injustice, oppression, greed, racism, sexism, ageism, elitism, deceit, lying, lewdness, pornography, selfish ambitions, lawlessness, rebellion, violence, hatred, partiality, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, and slander.  Forgive us for not equipping and preparing the next generation with the tools, knowledge and self-confidence they will need to be effective, efficient leaders for tomorrow.   Lord, forgive the Body of Christ for not praying consistently for our leaders, city, state and nation.  Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.  As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help the residents of the state of Texas to not yield to temptation; but deliver us from the evil one.

Eternal Lord, You are Holy.  You are the blessed and only Almighty God, the King of kings and Lord of lords.  You alone can never die, and lives in light so brilliant that no human can approach You.  No one has ever seen You, nor ever will.  To You be honor and power forever.  In Jesus’ Name, amen

We claim the radical redistribution of wealth in our communities. We decree that the merchants in our communities will not fear bad news; they confidently trust You, Lord, to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.  They share freely and give generously to those in need.  Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.  The wicked will see this and be infuriated.  They will grind their teeth in anger; they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.  Lord, we expect You to pour down Your blessings upon our communities.  We decree that our land will yield its bountiful harvest.  Father, we will support the businesses of the Godly men and women in our communities.

Make a list of small businesses in your community and begin to support them. 

Magnificent Father, touch the hearts of the people in our communities to support the businesses.

Convict the hearts of business owners in all communities who treat their employees and customers poorly.
