Entrepreneurs' eveningEVENT - An Evening With Paul Szkiler Entrepreneurs' VisionEE TalksHighlighted ResourcesEE Business ProfilesPrayer

Prayer

In November the ACTB Entrepreneurs had a week of prayer on the EE WhatsApp group. We prayed through the different aspects of the Vision each day. Below are the scriptures and prayers for each day, why not use them in your our personal prayer time, and share them with others as well.


DAY 1

VISION FOCUS - Imagine the impact of thousands of businesses run by Christians with a sense of calling and purpose, whose businesses are built on biblical foundations. Imagine your business…

SCRIPTURE - It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone... Ephesians 1:11-12 [MSG]

PRAYER - Today Lord we pray for your Heavenly Kingdom perspective, that we would see ourselves and our businesses the way that you see them. We pray that you would spark our imagination and creativity, and increase our sense of purpose, as we stand firm in the knowledge that you have called us to business. And Lord we pray for an increase - We pray that more of your people would take hold of the gifts and skills you have given them, and would step into the call to serve you and your Kingdom through their businesses too. In Jesus name we ask it. Amen.

 

DAY 2

VISION FOCUS - Our belief is simple; the kingdom of God can be advanced through business if those businesses are established on biblical foundations. "This is a beautiful thought. If we build on biblical foundations amazing things will happen, not of our accord, not of our power, but by the Spirit of the Lord."

SCRIPTURE - Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18 

PRAYER - We pray for help to apply biblical teachings to all we do in our businesses so that we can see businesses transformed into what God intends them to be. Amen.

 

DAY 3

VISION FOCUS - Multiply, release the Ambassadors to share the vision. - ‘Not about how many we gather but how many we send.’

SCRIPTURE - And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

PRAYER - Father, thank you for the awesome privilege of being your ambassadors and the opportunity to be part of the beautiful tapestry You are weaving throughout history.  Father, may we embrace wholeheartedly the dreams, vision and aspirations You have placed in our hearts and be intentional about sharing, encouraging and empowering others to do the same & to lay hold of what You have divinely prescribed for them to do (Eph 2:10) in releasing your goodness and glory throughout all the earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

 

DAY 4 

VISION FOCUS -Share encourage and equip for the vision.

SCRIPTURE - For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.  May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had. Romans 15 v 4&5

PRAYER - Father God it is beyond comprehension that I have been given the mind of Christ. Help me to honour you with my thoughts and actions as I reflect on this and share the vision you have given me - to help and encourage others in business - to know that this is a heavenly calling - to lay hold of the fact that you have already set aside for me everything I need to fulfil the purpose you have destined me for - and to acknowledge You in everything I say and do, in Jesus Name.  Amen.

 

DAY 5 

VISION FOCUS - Build businesses that express/demonstrate the fruit of the Holy Spirit with Love at the heart.

SCRIPTURE - Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4

PRAYER - Heavenly Father.Thank you for the great love you have for us and for this world, that you would  send your Son Jesus to die for us, that we would receive life and hope.Father we pray that our businesses would bring life and hope to others, that the love of God would minister to us and through us, and that our businesses would be a continual expression of your love.Father help us to demonstrate the fruit of your Holy Spirit, to be kind and faithful, gentle and fair and to seek to represent you in all that we do. Lord help us to carry your presence into our businesses and let all that we do be a reflection of your heart, love and desire for this world. In Jesus name. Amen.

 

DAY 6 

VISION FOCUS - Build successful businesses, businesses of excellence.

SCRIPTURE - Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. Col 3:23-24

PRAYER - Father, we acknowledge that everything we are and everything we have comes from you.  We thank you that our businesses are entrusted to us by you. Help us to remember that you are the real boss and to be good stewards and faithful servants, building our businesses on the foundation of your Word and led by your Spirit. Thank you that the “work of our hands” is part of our worship; we pray that our businesses will be a sweet-smelling fragrance to you, an acceptable offering and a channel of blessing. Oh Great Love, may our businesses be containers and transmitters of your love, reflecting your love and glory in every way possible. We worship you and welcome you into every part of them today. Amen.

 

DAY 7

VISION FOCUS - Build community, through WhatsApp, Prayer, Mentoring, Coaching etc.

SCRIPTURE - Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25.

PRAYER - Father God, we thank you that you have called us to honour you in the marketplace. Your word reminds us of the collective encouragement, inspiration and challenge that is found within the body of Christ. Lord I pray that you will truly use us to sharpen one another as we seek to play an instrumental role of equipping one another to be God honouring, faithful and exceptional entrepreneurs. We ask that you bless the coaching, peer coaching mentoring and this very WhatsApp group. Use this group to help us have a larger vision for what you can do in and through us as business owners. Empower us to shine your light in the midst of the darkness that surrounds us. Help us to be a Christ centred compelling community in Jesus' name we pray.
