Need a breakthrough in your business? Looking for prayers that could be of help?
Welcome to this site, where you’ll find prayers for different circumstances you face, including those related to business. These five bold prayers for a business breakthrough are written for you use right now. We want your business to succeed, and to reach the next level. We ultimately pray the strength of this scripture over you and your business:
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9.8, NIV).
It’s hard when you’re working in a company and your department, or the organization as a whole hits a wall financially or in productivity. Lots of questions may come up but mostly what everyone wants is a breakthrough. The business needs to find a new revenue source, or additional customers, or come up with an additional product line or service.
It can be easy to spread blame around for where the company is at the moment- especially if you’re legitimately being treated unfairly. There are times when that occurs and it’s tough to handle that negativity. But it also presents an opportunity to step forward in an encouraging way and begin to pray.
Pray for your business. Pray for your co-workers and supervisors. Pray for the owners and customers. Pray for yourself and pray for a stronger team.
When challenges seem steep, seeking guidance in prayer is often the best strategy. Some obstacles we face in business are beyond our current understanding. Prayer is a way of progressing with a humble heart, admitting that we need direction and insight.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up” (James 4.10, NIV).
Perhaps not everyone in your business feels the same way. No matter, you take care of what you can do, and one of those things is to pray. Maybe you are a boss or an employee, there’s a prayer here you can pray. Whether your company is just starting out or has been around awhile, there’s a prayer here for you.
When you feel like you can’t do anything, prayer is something you can do. Praying emboldens you, strengthens you, and brings you closer to the God who loves you.
You can easily modify any of these prayers to specifically reflect your exact situation. And, as you pray your own requests may come to mind. We invite you to share them at the end of this article.
A Brief Prayer for Business Breakthrough
Lord God, we need a breakthrough in our business. We have loyal employees for which we give you thanks and praise for sending them to us. But we also have been on a plateau financially for the past quarter.
We have enough coming in to pay our bills and cover payroll, but we cannot stay in this static stage for too much longer. I pray for you to bring us more business Lord, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for New Business Breakthrough
Father God, our little business got off to a good start but we’re starting to hit a wall. While there is a steady stream of customers, the profits have remained the same for several months. We are grateful to you for your provision in this way. We have made payroll each month!
But we know we can’t languish here. We’ve got to have a breakthrough for more customers in the next month or so. Help us see what we are not currently seeing, be it cutting expenses, raising prices, or discovering new customer groups. We’re getting to a point of desperation here God!
We’re so proud of what we’ve started here and want this new business to grow and be a pillar in the community. Guide us to a new level, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Prayer for Established Business Breakthrough
God, thank you for how you’ve grown our business over the years. When we started I wasn’t sure we’d make it, but you have provided for us in so many ways–thank you and praise you!
But now that we’ve been established for several years, we’re facing a slowdown. Our business needs to find more income streams and higher profit margins to step up to the next level. We literally have to break through the current financial eddy and move into the flowing river of increased sales.
I pray for wisdom and insight that I don’t currently have, Lord. Help me to change my perspective in order to view the business from a different angle. I need to see how to keep us moving forward financially and I can’t do that on my own.
I ask all of these things in the name of our Provider, Lord Jesus, Amen.
Boss’s Prayer for Business Breakthrough
Jesus, I need your help. I’ve got responsibility for (number) of employees. They’re looking to me for how we go forward with our business. We desperately need a breakthrough to get us out of the hole we’re in. It’s no one’s fault Lord; it’s just a rough season we’re in right now.
Sales have slowed and the financials for the next quarter look grim. I don’t want to lay off anyone because these folks have been so loyal to organization and are hard workers. Help me see a way to move in a positive direction. Help this business experience a breakthrough. I want to be faithful to our workers’ loyalty and honor that dedication.
So many lives are affected by this business Lord, and I’d like for that good influence to continue. Help us Lord. Help me, Lord! I pray this prayer in the name of the One who Guides and Directs, Lord Jesus, Amen.
Employee’s Prayer for Business Breakthrough
Lord Jesus, I pray for my company. I enjoy working at this business so much! From the people I work with to the encouraging culture in the workplace, it’s a great place to be an employee. Lord, I’d be heartbroken if the company faltered. It seems selfish to pray for success because I benefit by keeping my job, but I’m not the only person who works there, Lord.
So, I pray for a breakthrough to occur this month. It’s mostly above my pay grade but I know enough to know that we are facing a difficult season. No one has been let go yet and I pray that doesn’t happen to me or anyone else. Guide our bosses and the senior staff to make wise decisions, thinking of the long term consequences.
Help us all to work steadily and faithfully in the meantime. Let us all see that each of us plays a role in the overall success of the company. Grant us initiative and drive. Help us all to trust you for our protection and our provision. I make this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
We often can try to separate our lives into silos. There’s work and school and home and church and hobbies, as examples. We can forget that God cares about every aspect of our lives, including the business world. We could be the owner, manager, boss, or employee, but to the God we follow, what we do to earn a living matters.
We don’t need to be shy about sharing our concerns with God about anything in our lives, including our job or workplace. God is with us wherever we go and so it should be natural to include God, through prayer, in our workday world.
Given how much of our day and week and life we spend at work, we should strive to bring God into that time more often. We can thank God for giving us purpose each day–we have something to do! We can also lift the company to God so it continues in profitability and success and influence. We get to be a part of something that’s bigger than just us.
Many aspects of our business will be out of our control. Whether that’s a result of unexpected weather, a change in government, or an event that didn’t go the way we wanted it to, we’re often not in complete control…but God is.
And when our business faces financial struggle or competitive challenges, we should be even more prone to prayer. It’s okay to ask God for a business breakthrough. It’s okay to ask God for business success. It’s proper to ask God to help you be a better, more productive worker.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might” (Ecclesiastes 9.10a).
Sometime a breakthrough in business comes through hard work and resilience. Sometimes it happens because events out of our control come together at the right time and a positive pathway opens up. Profits increases, sales rise, expenses lower and the breakthrough you prayer for is happening right in front of you.
Whatever happens, you can know that you not only did your part by working effectively in your role. You can rest and be confident that you did your part by praying for the business. Remember, there’s nothing to big or too small to escape the eye of our Almighty God!
