Day 1 – Business and Marketplace

Today we are focusing our prayer on businesses and the marketplace. Most of us either work for a business in some capacity or own a business. Growth in business is good for our entire city as well as for individual families. Seeing God move in our local economy to bring fruit and productivity reflects the image of heaven.

One verse that gives us a picture of how to be fruitful in business is found in Proverbs 11:25. “The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.”

We are called to be a generous people in everything we do, including how we handle business. If we are business owners, we can be generous with our employees and clients. If we are employees, we can be generous with our ideas, innovations, and work ethic. Generosity is a heavenly principle that, as this verse suggests, has ramifications that causes us ALL to be built up.

Lord, open our eyes today to see how we can be generous in our places of business. Where can we bring value to this sphere of influence?

Join us now in praying for growth over the business owners in our city. Lord, give them wisdom, new ideas, and new ways of doing things. Spend some time speaking blessing over specific businesses that you frequent and favor. Ask God if there are any specific businesses He wants to bring to mind.

Now let’s take a minute to pray blessings over this whole region – that we would be a growing, thriving marketplace where people and new businesses are drawn!
