An adventurer on a treasure hunt

Have you seen a hunter searching for games in the forest? Have you also watched an adventurer on a treasure hunt? They go for their games with all their attention and all they’ve got. This should be your attitude as you pray for insight when you are starting a new business venture.

Some Christian businessmen and women don’t believe it is necessary to pray for insight or understanding or discernment before they begin a new business venture. You must carry out this type of prayer session. You are traveling on a journey you have never embarked upon before. You need to ask the One who knows all things and who has traveled all journeys for insight and understanding before embarking on the journey.

Prayer for starting a new business is biblical

God’s Word in Proverbs 2: 1-6 says: “My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you; So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom: from His mouth come knowledge and understanding”.

God is ever ready to give you knowledge and understanding that can carry you through the new business venture. He can open your eyes to see those you can approach to learn from them. You will receive this help from God if your new business venture is a Godly one.
