“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
Today, thousands of entrepreneurs are making their way to the great city of Dallas for our International Pastors & Leadership Conference! As we continue our week of intercessory prayer from The Potter’s House, we would like to pray for all of the entrepreneurs attending this week’s conference. Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or a tenured entrepreneur, God has a plan for your success!
Entrepreneurship. It’s one of the most rewarding and, seemingly at times, the most elusive lifestyles you can achieve! Imagine being your own boss! You are the chief architect and visionary behind every business operation, creative direction, and marketing and advertising initiative. You set your own schedule. You plan exciting vacations abroad, while networking to secure your next client. This is the life! While these are great perks to look forward to as an entrepreneur, there’s also a tremendous amount of hard work that must be accomplished to be able to realize the perks of entrepreneurship. Yes, the life challenges of an entrepreneur can be just as daunting as they are rewarding. To this end, we pray for God’s favor and blessings to cover every entrepreneur that has dreams of maximizing their effort to impact their sphere of influence, in Jesus Christ’s name. God wants to use your entrepreneurship journey for His glory!
“The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though He may stumble, He will not fall, for the LORD upholds Him with His hand.” – Psalm 37:23-24
Intercessory Prayer for God’s Plan for Entrepreneurs
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that you will forgive me of my sins. I believe that you gave your only begotten Son – Jesus Christ – to die for my sins. Today, I accept Jesus Christ into my life. God, I earnestly bow down to you and acknowledge you as my Lord and Savior. I thank you for being a magnificent Father. Today, I ask that you cover every single entrepreneur attending the International Pastors & Leadership (IP&L) Conference in Dallas, TX, with your favor and blessings, in Jesus Christ’s name. Lord, I pray that you will bless every entrepreneur with the proper mindset to understand the risks as well as the rewards of entrepreneurship. I pray that you will convict the hearts of every entrepreneur to seek your infallible Word daily, to renew their minds. Bless them, Father, to renew their strength in you, for you are faithful to provide for those who seek you in everything they do!
I pray that you will equip every entrepreneur with the tools and resources they need to become successful in their ventures. Lord, I pray that you will bless every entrepreneur to make countless connections with those who are in a higher sphere of influence. Bless them to connect with industry thought leaders, speakers, and others who are smarter, wiser, and more talented than they are, in Jesus Christ’s name. Allow them to leverage these new connections to scale their efforts.
Heavenly Father, you know all of the obstacles facing entrepreneurs. I pray that you will bless them to overcome every obstacle whether natural or supernatural that may come their way, in Jesus Christ’s name. Lord, we know that their faith will be tested throughout their entrepreneurship journey. I pray that your Holy Spirit will guide them and be that still small voice to encourage them to never give up! I pray that you will get the glory in every entrepreneur’s life. Bless them to be wildly innovative and disrupt markets that have been stagnant, in Jesus Christ’s name.
“….Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” – Psalm 23: 5-6
Heavenly Father, through intercessory prayer I pray that you shine your countenance upon every entrepreneur, including those who are able to attend the conference, as well as those who are not able to attend. Lord, I ask that you will convict every entrepreneur’s heart to be cognizant of the enemy’s plans to distract them from your divine plan, in Jesus Christ’s name. May you impart your wisdom in every entrepreneurs’ spirit. Thank you, Father, for equipping and empowering every entrepreneur for success, in Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.
