Today, let's delve into the third "P" of passive prospecting - Prayer. 

To me, this is one of the most, if not the most, important parts of growing a successful business as a Christian entrepreneur. It involves inviting God into our business, praying for what we want, and surrendering to God. 

As an entrepreneur, I've experienced moments of vulnerability, weakness, self-doubt, and concerns about my capacity to provide for my family or the financial health of my business. Let’s be honest; I know it's not just me. I know you may have struggled with some of these challenges as well. 

And… here are some key insights on incorporating Prayer into your business: 

The most important → Surrender and Trust: 

In moments of doubt or vulnerability, surrender to God. Acknowledge your limitations and trust that, through Him, you can overcome any challenge. Surrender doesn't mean inaction but relinquishing anxieties as you take purposeful steps forward. 

Pray for Business Growth: 

Specific prayers for your business can be powerful. Ask God to bless your endeavors, make opportunities abundantly clear, and guide you in becoming a blessing to others through your work. 

Consistent Conversations: 

Cultivate an ongoing conversation with God throughout your day. Share your desires, hopes, and fears. Like a true leader walking in friendship with the Lord, let prayer be a constant in your decision-making process. 

Aligning Actions with Prayer: 

While praying for God's blessings, ensure your actions align with your intentions. Prayer, coupled with assertive action, creates a powerful force for growth. 

Reflecting on my own journey, prayer has been the foundation of attracting unexpected opportunities, relationships, and financial blessings to my life and business.  

God has allowed the opportunity to create a community where coaches can pray, encourage, and support each other: the Christian Coaches Academy—a testament to God's grace. 

I encourage you to invite God into all parts of your business and your life. Quiet time with Him is a special opportunity for us.
