For more than 40 years, Bob Perry’s single-minded prayer has been, “Lord, teach me to pray.”
For the first 35 years or so, he prayed in many different venues: churches, ministries, pro football teams, over Air Force One, and as the lead intercessor for the Final Four March Madness tournament.
After years of seeing astonishing, measurable results, his friend Paul asked, “When are you going to start focusing on business?”
At that point Bob turned his considerable skills and giftings towards the business world.
Amy Lykosh’s parents started a business in 1990. From the beginning, they encouraged their employees to pray, on the clock.
Thirty years later, they hired Bob, as a trained intercessor, to pray. Astonished at the effectiveness of his prayers, a few months later Amy partnered with him.
Together Bob and Amy have the privilege of raising up a team to pray.
Our goal is to change the narrative on prayer in business. God cares about business, prayer makes a difference, and prayer in business offers the opportunity to change the culture and advance God’s kingdom.
It is our privilege to offer intercession for, and teach intercession to, those in the workplace.
As Bob says: “If prayer doesn’t offer solutions, why bother?”
An avid student of prayer for more than four decades, Bob has founded and led multiple prayer initiatives that have trained and mobilized hundreds of thousands of people in prayer partnerships. With his firm conviction that prayer brings results, his clients routinely see breakthrough in problems that have lingered for months … or years. Gifted in mentoring, teaching, coaching, healing, faith, perseverance, prophecy, and big picture thinking, he overflows with encouragement, exuberance, and enthusiasm. He longs to make prayer practical, and for all believers to find the same freedom and healing that the Lord has given him. Bob and his wife, Sharon, live in Nashville, TN, and have four adult children.
After giving up on prayer for about eight years, Amy came back to prayer two years before she met Bob. Her heartbeat in prayer is for healing and deliverance, and her heart’s cry comes from the verse, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). She longs for the needed knowledge go out to stop the destruction! Her clients and friends value her relational generosity, clear communication, discernment, administration, and good humor. The author of several highly acclaimed books, and daily prayer emails and podcasts, she and Bob work together to get his depth of insight out into the world through books, classes, and courses. She lives with her husband and five sons in rural central Virginia.
