As a Christian businessperson, you know that prayer is an essential part of your life. You pray for wisdom, guidance, and strength as you lead your team and make decisions that impact your company and your customers.
Prayer is also important for your upcoming business meeting. You want to be prepared and confident, and you want God’s help in ensuring that the meeting is a success.
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33.3, NIV).
Along with the prayers above, I wanted to give you several suggestions on what you might want to include in your prayer for a business meeting.
Clarity and wisdom: Pray that God would give you clarity and wisdom as you prepare for and lead the meeting. Pray that you would be able to clearly communicate your ideas and that you would make wise decisions.
Favor: Pray that God would give you favor with the other people in the meeting. Pray that they would be open to your ideas and that they would be willing to work together to achieve a positive outcome.
Relationship-building: Pray that God would help you to build relationships with the other people in the meeting. Pray that you would be able to get to know them and learn about their needs and concerns.
Problem-solving: Pray that God would help you and the other people in the meeting to identify and solve any problems that may arise. Pray that you would be able to come up with creative and effective solutions.
Success: Pray that God would bless the meeting and help it to be a success. Pray that the decisions made in the meeting would be in His will and that they would benefit the company and all involved.
You can pray these prayers before the meeting and the mere action of turning your attention to God will bring about peace. You can pray it silently in your head or you can pray out loud. The most important thing is to be sincere and to pray with faith.
Remember, God is with you and He wants to help you succeed. Pray for His guidance and wisdom, and trust that He will lead you in the right direction. Please share with us what happens with your business meeting. We like to hear your requests and comments. Keep on praying!
