My heart is to serve my customers with a heart of Christ–sharing the Word of God through my words and integrity.

In addition, please provide the physical assets I will need. Also, bring customers to my business, the customers who you have chosen for my services as well as the gospel. I pray for my family as this is a joint venture. Please give all involved the insight and patience needed to launch a business. Let me not lose sight of my highest calling to you and my family first. I want to honor them before pouring out my energy into starting and running the business.

I am standing on Romans 8:28: “All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” I feel strongly this is the direction I need to take. I have total peace about my new business and ask you, Father, to join in to make it profitable and a joy to run. Please remove stumbling blocks. For those many hurdles that are going to arise, I pray I glean much from the experiences.

Zechariah 4:6 tells me “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.” I humbly ask that you fill me with your Spirit daily so that I am equipped to perform your calling.
