Industry and Commerce
Exodus 34:10 And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the LORD. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.
Father, I thank You for the incredible gifts and abilities You have given our business leaders and industry to create resources for us and jobs for our people. Lord, we honor the small businesses and mega-companies that sustain our communities and meet big needs. We need each part! Help our companies have the foresight to work together. We pray that those who lead and develop will have vision and creativity that is birthed by You. We thank You for giving them wisdom, vision and passion to solve problems effectively and to efficiently meet needs. We pray for stable and growing markets, and that You equip each company with the ability to think bigger thoughts that bring joy to You. We ask that these businesses thrive so they can provide for current and future employment needs. Lord, help our people to honor and support the hand that feeds them. Lord, we pray for a capable, stable, and honorable workforce. We pray that unnecessary business regulations be lifted. Help each company to regulate themselves uprightly and safely. We pray for unity in the leadership and in the workforce. We bind up mean-spirited competition and corruption and release a common vision and a heart for the welfare of those within their company and those whom they serve. Help them honor You in all they do.
*Lord, now, I thank You for the businesses that serve me, for those that make my food, and prepare products that I use every day. Bless and keep safe those who transport all these products so that I may use them. I ask that You help me to be grateful for the many gifts made possible through their hand. Help them in all their ways and help them to thrive. Lead them to You! In Jesus Name, Amen!
