When I restarted my business in November of 2014, I literally let go of more than 3/4 of my staff. Those that stuck around were essential to completing some final projects I had going on and the new direction I wanted to go in.
One person in particular helped me through this ‘Restart’ phase. I remember thanking God for her and praying for her favor and success in growing in career. She blessed my business tremendously in the transition, and I know why.
When we pray for others and intercede on their behalf, God finds favor in you and them.
In Nehimiah 1:10-11, we find Nehimiah in prayer to God, but not for himself, but others that will help him build.
“They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”
You want to restart, you can’t do it alone. There are people around you that God also wants to bless using your business. Do you realize that the success of your business could put someone else’s kid through college? Do you realize the opposite is true as well: if you don’t succeed, someone else isn’t moving forward.
Take a moment now to write down 3-5 people that you know are going to be instrumental in you Restarting your business. These can be employees, contractors, vendors, clients, consultants or a friend that loves to help. Pray for them and their success. They have goals and dreams too, pray that God grant you favor in your business so that many can benefit from its success.
