Five Prayers for Business That Get Results
For 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. He prayed for churches, for ministries. He prayed for pro football teams and as the lead intercessor for the Final Four March Madness tournament. He prayed over Air Force One.
After years of seeing astonishing results, 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.
When asked about the most effective prayers to pray for businesses, he came up with these five that have proven incredibly powerful in the lives of his clients.
• The eight-figure business that had been more-or-less stagnant for a decade, when, within a few months of hiring Bob to pray, doubled its revenue.
• The third generation family business that had seen ups and downs over their five decades, but once they hired Bob, saw record-breaking growth, week after week, for more than a year.
• The 32-year-old solopreneur, going through early menopause and expecting to have to do some form of in vitro fertilization, who found she was expecting, naturally, within two months (and without the team knowing about this request).
• The family farm that had been in operation for some decades and was doing fine, but when, at the end of a year, they looked back and said, “It’s like the cloud of glory has settled over our farm.”
• The C-suite executive of a large defense contractor, witnessing the turnaround of a company from almost certain destruction to a new day: a 180 degree turn in 10 months.
• The insurance company that finally got traction on a dream that had been stagnant for seven years.
• The corporate executive at one of the Big Four who finally made peace with his high position and no longer felt like he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
We delight to share these testimonies because this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
These are a few of the prayers that we pray.
