Are you an entrepreneur and want to pray for your success? Do you know someone starting their own business and want to pray for them?
These seven enthusiastic prayers for entrepreneurs are a way for you to do just that. While they are written in a general way, you can easily alter the wording to have the prayer be specific to what you’re facing as an entrepreneur. The prayers are a tool for you to employ in your desire to grow closer to God.
I would recommend that you also take a look at prayers for abundance and prosperity, or prayers for financial breakthroughs. Regular praying can be a vital part of your overall spiritual and mental health. I also invite you to share about your journey or give us feedback in the comments section at the end of this article.
When you are starting your own business, it’s both exciting and terrifying at the same time. There’s hope for success and the freedom that comes with having your own business. And there is also the very real challenge of “What happens if this fails?”! It makes sense, then, doesn’t it, to come to God with your concerns and worries?
As you pray, you can be encouraged that God knows what is going on with you and your new business. Although God doesn’t guarantee riches and wealth, you can be encouraged by the Apostle Paul that God is aware of what you need:
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” ( Philippians 4.19, NIV).
You may want a million-dollar business, but what you need at the moment is a printer that works, or a vendor who delivers on time. Need over want.
Despite the few unicorn stories of “overnight” successes in the business world, the reality for entrepreneurs is day-in, day-out hard work, savvy, and hustle. May these prayers for entrepreneurs give you encouragement, direction, and peace as you connect with God.

Prayer For A Friend Who Is An Entrepreneur
God in heaven, I am coming to you on behalf of my friend (friend’s name). She is just beginning her new business and I want to ask you to bless her and her entrepreneurial spirit. I have seen how hard she has worked to get to this point. I have seen her business plan and it is a solid one.
I pray for customers to flock to her. I pray for word of mouth to spread rapidly about what she offers. I pray that she has to turn away business because so many people want to buy from her. I ask for her to have favor in the marketplace and smooth running of the business in these early days.
I am already so happy for her to be pursuing her dream and her passion. She’s waited until now to do this and it’s now her time to shine. Guide her, protect her from bad business decisions, and grant her the joy of knowing that all the good that is going to happen for her business is from your loving hand.

Prayer For Entrepreneurs Overcoming Startup Challenges
Lord, I am facing many challenges as I start my business. I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed. My vendors were lined up and now have backed out, without much notice, so I’m scrambling to find replacements.
Please help me to stay calm and focused. Give me the wisdom to make wise decisions in the midst of what looks and feels like chaos. I know I can work my way through all of this, but I am praying for some buffer in between each crisis that is popping up. If I feel overwhelmed I am afraid I will give up, so help me to see clearly.
I knew this would be difficult and I have planned for most of this, but now that it is reality and not just some strategic point on a piece of paper, I know that I can’t do this on my own strength. Fill me with your power and peace, Lord. I think if this business gets off the ground, it can truly be a blessing to our clients and community.
I also believe that it will be a blessing to me and my family, as it will give us some autonomy as to how we live our life and keep together. Help me, Lord God! In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

I want to use my success to help others, so help me be open to people who call me for advice and tips. May the blessings you have given me pour out onto others I encounter.
I pray that I will stay humble and grateful. I pray that I will never forget that all of my success comes from you. Thank you for what you have given me as an entrepreneur. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
I know that you are an entrepreneur, and I want to encourage you to pray. Prayer is a powerful tool that can help you in your business.
As an entrepreneur, you face many challenges. You may have to deal with financial problems, staffing issues, or competition. You may also have to make difficult decisions that could affect the future of your business.
Prayer can help you to overcome these challenges. When you pray, you are asking God for help. You are also submitting your business to God and asking him to lead you. I’ve put together a few key aspects of a new business or start up where you’d want prayer to enter into what you’re doing.
Financial problems. Starting and running a business can be expensive. You may have to borrow money, and you may have to deal with unexpected expenses. Prayer gives you clarity and peace to manage your finances and find financial solutions.
Staffing issues. Finding and keeping good employees can be difficult. You may have to deal with turnover, absenteeism, or performance issues. Prayer can help you to find the right employees and to create a positive work environment.
Competition. There is always competition in business. You may have to compete with larger companies, or you may have to compete with businesses that are offering similar products or services. Prayer is a key tool to help you to stay focused on your goals and allow you to be gracious.
Difficult decisions. As an entrepreneur, you will have to make many difficult decisions. These decisions could affect the future of your business. Prayer can help you to make wise decisions and to trust God’s plan for your business.
And, while you are going to be working hard for your business to succeed, always keep in front of you this wisdom from Proverbs:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3.5-6, NIV).
I encourage you to pray for yourself as an entrepreneur, just as much as you pray for the success of your new business. Prayer can help you to overcome challenges, to make wise decisions, and to trust God’s plan for your business, and for your life. Keep on praying!
