Praying for a Strong Economy: Small Business Growth

Small businesses have always been the primary source of new jobs, and even in this anemic recovery have produced 60% of new jobs since 2009 despite entrepreneurs facing great uncertainty due to extreme regulations, skyrocketing healthcare costs, and ridiculously complicated tax codes. It takes courage to start a new business, as entrepreneurs risk their life savings and lifestyles (house, cars, education, etc.) starting a new business.  America needs an Entrepreneurial Explosion – as business startups provide the bulk of new jobs for the future. We must empower American small businesses to be the best in the world.  (source: Investor’s Business Daily, 10/15/16) (Jerry Tuma)1

She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.” (Proverbs 31:16-18; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Call forth an Entrepreneurial Explosion due to positive business solutions and greatly reduced regulation.

  2. Ask God to stir individuals to recognize the gifts within them and that more and more would use those gifts to boldly start new businesses.

  3. Pray for downloads of God’s wisdom to assist Christian business owners to make their businesses the best in the world.

  4. Intercede for the Proverbs 31:16-18 female entrepreneurs to be encouraged and acknowledged.

A Prayer You Can Pray:

Lord, we call forth an Entrepreneurial Explosion! Pour our positive business solutions and cause the government to loosen regulations, so this Explosion is possible. Stir individuals to recognize the gifts they have been given by You and help them to see how to use them to start new businesses. These businesses can care for themselves and their families, and provide employment to many others. Make them wise and make America’s businesses the best in the world—models for others. We especially ask this for women business owners. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree an Entrepreneurial Explosion that creates the best jobs America has ever created!
