A Prayer for Those Starting a New Business

My friend Jeff was out of work for 18 months. His unique set of experiences, training, and education was both an asset and a liability: In this economic environment is particular field just wasn’t providing many openings for him. It was a painful struggle for Jeff.

But instead of defeat and despair Jeff got creative and began to think outside the box. With the counsel of some friends and consultants Jeff “translated” his unique skill set into a package that fit perfectly need in the marketplace: He became a professional mediator.

Starting a new business is a challenge, and many, even most fail the first year. The risk takes courage, creativity, tenacity, and energy times two! In this present economy many people are finding a need to step outside their comfort zones and launch new careers. Left with dead ends in their own sectors, they are reinventing themselves and starting new businesses – never easy. For all those out there tacking the challenge of a new business, God’s blessed best!

“God we pray today for those launching new businesses and careers. It’s a challenging time in our economy. This presents dangers but also new opportunities. Thank you for the creativity and courage you have given to make these ventures possible. As they have taken steps of faith, give them the energy and tenacity they will need to prevail. Give them perseverance to press through discouragement. Give them hope that their labor will be fruitful. Bring them a team of friends and colleagues who can encourage them the give them wise counsel. Bring them into contact with just the right customers. May their new venture fit a real need. God, bless them indeed!”
