In 2016 I launched an Instagram for @dailygodpreneur. I figured that my blog posts had little golden nuggets in them that I could share as quick bits of inspiration.

The account has been widely successful! People from all over the world are following and engaging.

The posts getting MOST engagement are when I ask if people need prayer. Oh boy, that opens up the floodgates of comments and messages. It’s amazing to see the requests and to see others in the community praying for perfect strangers. But we’re not strangers, you see. We’re Godpreneurs, going through the roller-coaster of business together.

All of us Godpreneurs are waiting for something. The visions God had placed in our hearts have not come to fruition yet. God intended it that way so that there would be a healthy tension pulling you towards excellence.

In this waiting period, I’ve found two things to be extremely helpful, as evidenced in my own life and through the online community I shepherd.

The Bible says in Colossians 4:12,

Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

If you’re going to be a mature and complete Godpreneur, you need the prayers of others. It’s refreshing to pray for others because it reminds you that you’re not alone. It’s awesome to receive prayer because it reminds us, also, that we’re not alone.

The Bible also says in Colossians 1:27-28,

…Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

I also feel that in addition to the prayers of other Godpreneurs, we need to be getting some good preaching, teaching, and discipleship from others further along in their spiritual walk than you. Preaching and teachings cause revolutions in the mind. And when a teacher can hold you accountable for growth, you can grow even more! We need both teaching and accountability, forever.

Looking back at when I first started to become a Godpreneur and turn my business over to God, I heard some amazing preachings at my church that completely changed my perspective on business. Even though the teaching wasn’t about business, I was able to apply it to what I was going through.

I also had a friend that was a few years ahead of me in his journey with Christ, and he was also an entrepreneur. We made it a habit to meet frequently for lunch to grow through the word. I’ll be indebted forever to him and his prayers and teaching. It absolutely shaped me and my business.

To become mature in our faith, we Godpreneurs need to make sure we are under solid biblical preaching and teaching, and pray for other entrepreneurs as well as solicit the prayers of others.
