Teamwork is an essential part of survival and success. When one person tries to do something alone, they often get burnt out, but when people work together, they can withstand time and grow.
The bible reads “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up,” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.
For me, this verse serves as the foundation for the term team. Even if a person is by themselves, the Lord is with them to help them succeed. If we first lean on God, we are truly never alone in our pursuits, and he will be there for us if we ever fall down.
Building a team around this verse can only strengthen your commitment and end goal. You have worked hard to find people who fit your idea of what a team looks like. Each part of your team has different strengths and weaknesses, but together you can succeed in your goals.
I am very hopeful these prayers will help bring the Lord closer to your team through the entire team building process. Whether you are just starting from scratch, trying to create fresh bonds, or just trying to have fun as a group. I encourage you to pray over your team, and watch the Lord create a bond that can never be broken.
