7 Strategic Prayers to Help in the Sale of Your Business

Prayer to Send the Right Buyer for My Business:

Lord Jesus, you tell us in Philippians 4:6: “Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Faithful Father,

Praise you for the time you have provided with business ownership. You have been faithful through all the seasons. I now am ready to sell my business and move to a new season of my life. I come to you today to ask that you intercede in a successful sale of my business. <May insert the reason you want to sell it at this point>

Lord, I put my trust in You and ask that You give my business appeal and make it attractive to a buyer so that when they see it, the selling process goes smoothly. I am praying for the right buyer to take over my business. You know I have put much effort into the growth of the business. It has been an ordained work of your hands. It is my desire to have a believer purchase my business, a person who will continue the work and point customers to you.

I also ask that you provide the finances for the right buyer. With that in place, I know the closing of the sale will go smoothly and with favor. I block all attempts by the evil one to block a sale or hinder any steps in the process. Satan has no power over the sale of my business.

Lord, I know you will be glorified when the transaction is complete. It will be another opportunity to share the goodness of our Lord with all those I encounter.

In Jesus’ precious name.

Philippians 1:6 — Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Prayer to Set the Right Sales Price for My Business:

As I prepare to sell my business, I ask for your guidance and wisdom as I set the sales price for my business. I have analyzed my financials and have what I think is a fair selling price. I just don’t have peace yet. I am seeking you to confirm the price by giving me peace in my heart.

Please help me see the true value of my business and set a fair and just price for both myself and the future buyer. My lack of peace may be due to my attachment to the business I have built. If that is the case, please resolve that in my heart so that I can move forward with advertising the sale.

If I need to get a professional involved to help value my business, guide me to the right resources and experts who can help me gather the necessary information and data to make an informed decision. Give me the courage and confidence to negotiate with potential buyers in a fair and respectful manner.

Above all, I trust in your loving presence and infinite wisdom to guide me towards the best possible outcome. May this sale be a blessing for all involved.

I ask for your assistance in ensuring that the buyer is able to secure the necessary financing to make the purchase.

Please guide the buyer toward the right lenders and financial institutions that will offer him/her the support they need. Help the prospective buyer to present himself in the best possible light and to make a strong case for his ability to successfully operate the business. I pray that the financial picture I have provided to the prospective buyer is attractive to all lenders. Grant the prospective buyer favor each step of the way.

I ask for your blessings and guidance for my employees during this time of transition.

Lord, please give my employees peace from any uncertainty or fear they may be experiencing. Help them to feel supported and valued, and guide them towards the right opportunities and resources that will help them to thrive in their careers.

Please also help me to be a compassionate and caring leader during this time, and to make decisions that honor the well-being and dignity of my employees. May I be guided by love and wisdom in all my actions and interactions with them.

I speak Jesus over all related to the sale of my business. I serve a God who is faithful to deliver.

I ask all these things in the precious name of Jesus. Amen.
