Prayer for the Success of a Business
Father, Your Word says that I am a partaker of the inheritance and treasures of heaven. You have delivered me out of the authority of darkness and translated me into the Kingdom of Your dear Son. Father, where Your Word is there is light and, also, understanding. Your Word does not return to You void but always accomplishes what it is sent to do. I am a joint-heir with Jesus; and as Your son/daughter, I accept that the communication of my faith is effectual by the acknowledging of every good work that is in me in Christ Jesus.
Father, I commit my works (the plans and cares of my business) to You, entrust them wholly to You. Since You are effectually at work in me, You cause my thoughts to become agreeable with Your will, so that my business plans shall be established and succeed. In the name of Jesus, I submit to every kind of wisdom, practical insight, and prudence, which You have lavished upon me in accordance with the riches and generosity of Your gracious favor.
Father, I affirm that I obey Your Word by making an honest living with my own hands, so that I may be able to give to those in need. In Your strength and according to Your grace, I provide for myself and my own family. Thank You, Father, for making all grace, every favor and earthly blessing, come to me in abundance that I, having all sufficiency, may abound to every good work.
Father, thank You for the ministering spirits that You have assigned to go forth to bring in consumers. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” In His name my light shall so shine before all men that they may see my good works glorifying You, my Heavenly Father.
Thank You for the grace to remain diligent in seeking knowledge and skill in areas where I am inexperienced. I ask You for wisdom and the ability to understand righteousness, justice, and fair dealing in every area and relationship. I affirm that I am faithful and committed to Your Word. My life and business are founded upon its principles.
Father, thank You for the success of my business!
In Your name, amen.

The enemy wants you and your business to be broke, helpless, and dead. God desires you and your business to be blessed, fruitful, and prosperous.
Here are 7 powerful verses along with 7 sample prayers to better position yourself and your business to receive the prosperity of God.
(1) Starts in Your Soul
Verse: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3 John 2
Prayer: Lord, teach me how to prosper in my body and in my spirit, for then I am well equipped to receive your blessings over me and my business.
(2) Meditate on It
Verse: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Joshua 1:8
Prayer: Lord, guide me to constantly keep your Word in my Spirit and on my lips. Show me what works best for me to stay in your Word and when/how to meditate on it.
(3) Do It
Verse: “Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.” Deuteronomy 29:9
Prayer: Holy Spirit, rise up in me the courage and the confidence to do what You tell me, when You tell me, and how You tell me to do it – whatever “it” is.
(4) Blessings of Obedience
Verse: “‘Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. ‘The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.’” Deuteronomy 28:1,8,11
Prayer: Lord, keep my paths straight. Correct me if I wonder or get off course. Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance all things you’ve already taught me. Help keep me wholeheartedly committed to obeying Your commands so that we are blessable in Your sight.
(5) Continue in Good Works
Verse: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8
Prayer: Lord, grant me everything I need to continue your good works as You direct me. May everything I do be led by your Spirit and magnified into never-ending good works that bring you all the glory and honor.
(6) Leverage as a Testimony
Verse: “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand”. Genesis 39:2-3
Prayer: Lord, let our success be a testimony of Your goodness and blessing. Encourage me to point to you as my great provider, to introduce them to you, and to offer to them the opportunity for you to become their great provider, too.
Verse: “Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’” Psalm 35:27
Prayer: Lord, how I celebrate your joy in the prosperity you share with me and all those associated with this (your) business. I am humbled and forever grateful. May I always remember all prosperity comes through You.

As a Christian business owner, I pray about my business a lot. I know we sometimes feel it is a selfish prayer to ask for help in our business, even in difficult times. But my understanding is that we are to pray without ceasing and to come to the Lord with our petitions, and to me, that includes my business.
I admit that I am pretty laser-focused in my prayers. I will pray for specifics, however, I usually include thanks, a prayer request, a plea to get me and my control-self out of the way, and in the end, a prayer for His will.
A Prayer For Business Owners
Here is the type of prayer I would say in general for my business.
Lord, thank you so much for my business. I know, just like everything else, even my business comes from You. Help me to follow Your ways in my work so that I can honor You and glorify You.
Things are hard at times Lord, but I know You don’t promise us easy. I just pray, Lord, that when things are difficult, I can be a Godly leader. I pray I will not be overcome by fear and worry. I pray that I will stay the course and trust that the vision I have for my business is Your vision. I will try to treat others I encounter, be it staff, vendors, or customers, with love, respect, and integrity.
But, Lord, I can’t do it in my own strength, only in Yours.
I pray, Lord, that I can show perseverance and be a light to others. I know you call us to be a city on a hill. I pray that our business can set an example that by following You, even in the market place, that we will have an advantage.
I pray, Lord, that as I claim your promises from Matthew 6:26…
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
…that I can lay down the worry that Satan wants to plant in my mind and stray me from your path.
Lord, times are difficult, but I will stand strong and wait on you, Lord. Thank you for being here for me when fear threatens my resolve. I pray, Lord, that Your will be done, because I know that You love me and Your will is what is best.
I pray these things in Jesus great name,
Right now, I am also lifting up all who are reading this and praying God will show you His power, grace and mercy over and in your business.
