Heavenly Father,

Praise you for all you have done and are doing in the business you have given me. I pray for guidance and wisdom as I strive to be a leader with integrity in my business. Help me make fair, just, and ethical decisions, and always put my company’s and my team’s best interests first. Lord, I ask that all our leaders have the same in their leadership positions.

Please give me the strength and the courage to stand up for what is right, even when it is difficult or unpopular. Help me to be transparent and honest in my communications and actions and to always treat others with respect and kindness. Proverbs 20:7 tells us
“The righteous who walks in his integrity…”
Lord, my heart’s desire is to be righteous in your eyes. Put the words in my mouth and honor in my heart.

I pray that you will bless me with the leadership skills and qualities I need to be a successful and effective leader. Help me to inspire and motivate my team and to create a positive and inclusive work environment.

Grant me the humility and the self-awareness to continually learn and grow, and to admit my mistakes and learn from them. Help me be a leader who leads by example and a source of strength and guidance for my team.

I trust in your love and wisdom, and I pray that you will guide me toward leadership integrity and success. I ask all this in your Powerful Name. Amen

Prayer to Value Each Employee as a Leader in My Company:

Philippians 2:4 “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
