Awaken the Kingdom Business Leaders

Our current President is a man who understands business. A business owner and entrepreneur, he can help business in America to thrive again. America is still somewhat known as having a strong business climate, but government intervention and over-regulation have driven some businesses off-shore or out of business in the last decade. Government actions leading to moral decay and conflict have caused some Christian businesses to close. However, it may be possible to get back on track relatively quickly. American business is about to experience a renaissance (rebirth and reawakening).

Christian business owners have a unique role in this reformation of business in America. They can provide examples to other businesses in some key areas. They are more likely to recognize that they are not just in business to make money, but also to provide for the families of those God sends to them. They use their profits for Kingdom expansion, not just business expansion. They often give back into their communities, caring for the poor and providing financial support for social services, such as after-school programs, job training, and literacy. They give to ministries, supporting many different types of Christian causes. Their Kingdom mindset means that they operate according to a higher moral and ethical standard, being a wonderful example in the communities they operate in and to the nation, if they are a nationally known brand. Chick-Fil-A is a prime example of this.

When Kingdom business thrives, America thrives, many American families thrive, and the Kingdom is advanced.

“It is well with the man who deals generously and lends; who conducts his affairs with justice.” (Psalm 112:5; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Intercede for all business in America that it would be vibrant and financially strong again, able to support many workers and pay good wages.

  2. Pray for Christian businesses to be strengthened and to be primary examples of how healthy businesses operate.

  3. Pray that families would be blessed and cared for by American businesses.

  4. Ask the Lord to send more creative business ideas to His people.

  5. Pray that God sends more customers to Kingdom businesses, strengthening their market share, so they can have an even greater societal impact.

  6. Pray that Kingdom business owners are richly blessed, so they can partner with ministries at a greater level, increasing Kingdom expansion and the spreading of the Gospel.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we intercede for the businesses of America. We ask that You make them vibrant and financially strong again, so that American families are well-cared for and have all that they need. Highlight businesses that are God-fearing in their philosophy and practices. Make them examples to other businesses. Give creative ideas to Kingdom-advancing businesses, that they might be profitable and seen as blessed by God. Grant Divine connections between ministries and businesses for the sake of Kingdom advancement. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that America’s businesses will be strong blessings to many in America and throughout the world!
