Starting a business can be a hectic experience. It is essentially like having a baby. You get to watch it crawl, sit up, stand up, walk and finally run. Like a baby, a business needs to go through all these stages. You should pray for your business.
Do not forget that the good Lord wants us to prosper (Joshua 1:8). And just as we need Him every step of the way when we raise our young ones from the ground to the time when they can stand on their own, we need Him every step of the way when we build our businesses. We need his guiding hand through each stage.
We need to let Him in from the start. Our businesses will entail a lot and involve a lot for it to be successful. So we should visualize our business prospering in the future and go with the faith of our Lord through it all. Let’s go through a few important prayer points that can help you through the life span of your business.

Pray for the right business idea
You need the right idea to start a business that will prosper. You need to meet people at their points of need and at the right time. Make sure to do all your research on the necessity of your service and how it will highly benefit people in your target location.
Make sure the need you are filling is something that will be beneficial to God’s people. The Bible mentions in Galatians 6:2 that “carrying each other’s burden fulfills the law of Christ”. The more you think of others, the more chance your business has of succeeding. The more people you help, the more blessed you will be.

Choosing a business location is a very important step in the success of your business. Whether or not your business can prosper, can depend on the location of the business. A lot of people didn’t succeed in their businesses because they chose the wrong location.

Pray for Motivation
It is not uncommon to be put off by certain things that may initially stunt our progress. Remember that fear is all around us ready to creep into any decision we make. But the Bible admonishes us not to give in to fear (Deut. 31:8).
Sometimes we are dismayed and discouraged by our competitors or certain setbacks we may initially face. When God assures you in your heart of success, you need not look left or right. All you need to do is head straight and not be swayed by evil voices. When God is with you it is not possible to fail (Matthew 19:26).
Prayer for motivation
I know in my heart that you are beside me in this business
I started with you and I continue with you
I have started to doubt myself a little bit
I have been stunned by the voices of the evil one
I have allowed fear to enter my heart
I pray for your strength once again
I pray for your strong hand in mine
Just as you did for Moses, help me win this battle and prosper in this business
I have faith in you, My Lord. I know you will deliver me from this crisis
Order my steps, Dear Lord and I will be victorious
In Jesus’ name,
Pray for wisdom and guidance
The Bible says that if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God. (James 1:5). God is the one who gives wisdom. Solomon asked God for wisdom and God made him wise. Pray for wisdom to run your business and wisdom to make the right business decisions.
Prayer for wisdom and guidance

So we continue to grow this business

Pray for the right business partners
Proverbs 13:20 admonishes us to keep the right company. Parents are to be very careful of the kind of company their children keep. In your business ask God to lead the right people your way.
Greedy people might collapse your business before you even take off. The success of your business depends on the kind of people you partner with. Make sure your partners have the best interest of your consumers at heart.
Prayer for your business partners
Thank you for sustaining my business until now
I am grateful for all you have done for me in this business
I pray that you help me differentiate what is evil from what is right
Grant me divine judgment when I am choosing people to do business with
What may be right in my sight may not be right in yours
If any partner has been sent to collapse my business, I pray for that plan to fail
If any partner wants to retard my progress, I bind them in the name of Jesus
Let my business be a place of good intentions
Help my business reach people who need my services
Help me resist any evil plan that looks good on the surface
Only you know the end from the start
I pray for your divine scrutiny on anyone I do business with
In Jesus’ name,
Pray for Protection
God is your business’ protection (2 Samuel 22:3-4). Do not think of going for protection from anywhere else if you believe God to be the source of your business. People naturally start to feel unsafe when they start prospering. They start to panic and go for other forms of spiritual protection completely forgetting that the Lord’s mercies are infinite (Isaiah 43:19).
The God of Moses made water spring from rocks and protected his people from evil throughout their journey to Canaan. This same God is your portion in your business. Rely on only Him for your protection. He will not fail you.
Prayer for business protection
Thank you for your blessings today
I pray for my business this day
I pray for your protection from any evil eyes
Send your angels to guard every endeavor we undertake in this business
Guard our vehicles and money against robbers and thieves
Guard us when we travel, when we walk, when we deliver.
Walk, drive and fly with us no matter where we go
Deliver us from any evil that lay in wait for us
Protect us from evil people who claim to be our friends
Cleanse the food we eat and the water we drink in this business
Help us not break any laws that will drag us down
Bless this business, O Lord, and make it thrive
Thank you for answering our prayer
Pray for foresight
In Jeremiah 29:10, God talks about how He knows exactly what we need in our future and how His plans are not evil ones. In any business, you need to ask God to give you the foresight to stay in business and stay ahead.
Do not forget that God gave a lot of prophets His visions about the future of His people. This was to enable them to prepare themselves for what was coming or protect themselves from evils that were to come. He expects us to be prepared too.
In your business, you need to move with the trends. Do not also forget that the needs of your consumers are your priority. Ask God to keep you on your toes so you know what your people need at all times.
Prayer for foresight in business

Grant me your wisdom to spot any weaknesses in my business
Help me plug up any holes that may be hindering my progress in this business
Help me steer this business on the right path through any stormy winds
Help me sense danger quickly when they appear
Continue to be my pillar in this business, dear Lord
Pray against laziness
When things start to prosper in our businesses, we normally abandon most of the values that helped us prosper in the first place. Proverbs 19:15 talks about laziness resulting in hunger for the soul. The Bible treats laziness as cancer to the human spirit.
Some people cut corners when they become desperate either to increase production or reduce labor. The Bible condemns this in Proverbs 13:4. If God is your business then do not compromise on your quality because God does not cut corners.
Prayer for my business – against laziness
Please remove sloth from me
I want to stand for quality
Help me not abandon the values that helped me start this business
I do not want to be lazy, dear Lord
Push me to stay on my toes
Remove from me the spirit of laziness
Let me strive to be the best at all times
Help me not compromise on my quality
Remove greed from me
Grant me contentment
Thank you for answering my prayer through Jesus Christ,
Pray against cheating
Greed is a sin that should not be entertained. Greed can separate the best of friends. 1 Corinthians 6:10 vividly excludes the greedy from the kingdom of heaven. God does not keep company with the greedy. You must remove all greedy tendencies from your business. Greed leads to cheating. Children of God must not cheat others. Remember God does not cheat you so do not cheat others.
Prayer against greed
Thank you for your protection this day
I pray that you guard my heart against greed
Help me resist the temptation to cheat anyone I do business with
Give me the spirit of fairness
Let me not make enemies along the way because of greed
Let me look at my humble beginnings and accept what I am today
You took me from nothing and brought me here
Help me appreciate all you have done for me in this business
I do not want to be a hindrance to anyone else’s business
Let me not covet anyone’s property
let me be satisfied with all I get
In Jesus’ name,
Pray for your workers
When you are blessed with employees in your business you need to take care of them like God takes care of you. They are the tools that move your business and they need proper attention. Any discontentment or evil plans on the part of your employees may stall your business.
Treat them as you would want to be treated (Matthew 29:34). Do not cheat, bully or misuse your employees. Learn to know their needs also because without satisfaction they will not give you 100% productivity.
Prayer for your workers
I pray for my workers today
I pray that you meet them at their point of need
Take care of their families and all their requests
Use them as instruments of productivity in this business
Help them improve every aspect of this business
Grant them the grace to withstand any negativity
Give them the strength to undertake their day to day activities
Give them the wisdom to overcome any challenge they may face in this business
Help me take care of their needs and their grievances
Help them grow this business in prosperity
Thank you for answering my prayer,
Prayer for customers and workers
Thank you for this business that I do

May I never forget that without my workers and customers, my business is nothing
May I forever be humble and treat them with love and respect
Bless me with good leadership skills, so that I can serve as Jesus served
Fill my heart with joy and love, so that I can work with them in peace,
Thank you for hearing my prayer
In Jesus’ name,
Pray for business Sustenance
In Isaiah 46:4 the Lord talks about sustaining you even in your old age. Let Him sustain your business too. Pray that God keeps you afloat through any storm, tsunami, economic crisis, inflation crisis, stock market crashes, and so on.
When your business is built on God it is like building your house on rocks (Lk. 6:48). When God is your foundation you should never fear for your business.
