Why we don’t pray for those in business


Six reasons from Mark D. Roberts. Be sure to read his other posts that begin here and culminate here.

  1. We don’t pray for business because we don’t pray for business.

    Conversion of Zaccaeus by Strozzi

  2. We don’t pray for business because those who lead us in prayer have not been trained to do so.
  3. We don’t pray for business because our worship leaders have been trained in settings that are indifferent or negative to business.
  4. We don’t pray for business because Scripture does not command us to do so.
  5. We don’t pray for business because we don’t have a vision for how business could be part of God’s business in the world.
  6. We don’t pray for business because we divide reality into the sacred and the secular, with prayer falling on the sacred side, and business on the secular side, and never the twain shall meet.

    It can change…starting now and starting with us. We can transform that rather than dwell on the ‘lack’. I am a business person and my faith has been in every transaction! – Amy
