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.

There are many in the body of Christ who are struggling financially with their businesses. Some are even considering down sizing and laying off their employees because of the financial situation that they are facing.
We would like to submit the following scriptures to you for meditation, followed by a prayer for your business. The Lord will show you a way out of your current situation and make all of this work out for your good. Deuteronomy 8:18 (NLT) ~ “Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.”
We would also suggest that you make some time to fast through this process so that you can clearly hear what the Lord has to say to you on this matter. (Matthew 17:21) “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
The following scriptures are related to honesty & how you treat your employees. As you fast and meditate through these you may discover some areas where you need to repent & make things right. We know that God does not reward disobedience so these scriptures will help to guide you in the right direction. You can also take a look at these other prayers which may help you in other areas as well.
Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms shall be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
You shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of a hired man are not to remain with you all night until morning.
You shall not have in your bag differing weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house differing measures, a large and a small. You shall have a full and just weight; you shall have a full and just measure, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
“If I have despised the claim of my male or female slaves when they filed a complaint against me, what then could I do when God arises? And when He calls me to account, what will I answer Him?”
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice.
Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.
A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is His delight.
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.
Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it.
Better is a little with righteousness than great income with injustice.
He who oppresses the poor to make more for himself or who gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.
Woe to him who builds his house without righteousness and his upper rooms without justice, who uses his neighbor’s services without pay and does not give him his wages.
Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me, says the LORD of hosts.
He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.
And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness, knowing that you too have a Master in heaven.
1 Timothy 5:18
For the Scripture says, “Do not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”
Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.
These scriptures address the subject of Greed
Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.
1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
1 Timothy 6:7-10
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have.
What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
These are scriptures related to Debt Management
Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.
It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.
Here is what the bible has to say about get rich quick schemes:
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, but he who pursues worthless things lacks sense.
Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
The naive believes everything, but the sensible man considers his steps.
Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who hurries his footsteps errs.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, but everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.
After you’ve meditated on these scriptures you can pray the following prayer and wait for the Lord to direct your steps regarding your business.
Father God, I come to you in the name of Jesus and I ask that you would forgive me of the sin of ____________________. I know that all of my sins are forgiven and washed away by the blood of Jesus and I receive your forgiveness in these matters (1John 1:9). You say I am to come boldly before your throne to receive mercy and grace in my time of need and I am in deep need at this time (Hebrew 4:16) I ask now that you will reveal to me all the things that I need to do to make some thing right regarding this business which you’ve given me (wait for a few seconds in silence and God will show you what you need to make right, write them down so that you don’t forget). Thank you for the employees that you’ve given me and I pray that you will continue to provide for them through me. Lord I lift up this business to you and I dedicate it to you to be used for Your glory. I ask that you bless it financially and show me how to be a good steward with what you’ve already given me and will continue to give me (Matthew 13:12). I pray that now you will release to me action steps that I need to take to get this business on track to prosper this year. I am remembering Lord that you are the one who gives me the power to be successful. Your word in Joshua 1:8 says that if I meditate upon your word day and night and do not depart from it You will make my way prosperous and successful. I thank you for this truth and I thank you for the scriptures that you will use to impart wisdom and understanding. I move forward by faith in honesty being fair and balanced in all of the business affairs because I know honesty and righteousness brings you glory and sets me apart from other businesses (Proverbs 16:11). Lord I pray you grant me and my employees favor to get new customers and that all the bills from this business will be paid according to the glorious riches in Christ Jesus. I pray for your divine provisions and a miraculous financial breakthrough in Jesus name, Amen.
