Did you know that prayer is one of the most underutilized tools for business success? It’s true. We often focus all our energy on our productivity, drive, hard work, and goal-setting. And we overlook one of the most critical tools we have at our disposal – prayer and our connection with G-d. Our connection with G-d, which we achieve through prayer, is particularly relevant when it comes to our business success.
Once you understand this, it can change your entire life, including the way you approach your business.
From here, the next step is learning how to pray to unblock the heavenly channels. Then you can properly follow the key principles of praying to develop effective business prayers.
The book “How to Be More Successful in Business with Prayer” teaches you these concepts and tells you how to apply them to your personal situation to create prayers for your own business success.
The link between spirituality and business success
If you follow our blog, you’ve likely seen our series of posts on how mindfulness and spirituality are critical aspects of success in business. Setting spiritual goals, harnessing your spiritual energy, and engaging in spiritual practices are all ways that you can start to find real meaning and fulfillment in your career. They help increase your professional potential and tie your business success to improving the lives of others.
When you bring your spirituality to the workplace, you bring a version of your “whole” self with you. You approach your tasks as a complete individual—a person with both a spiritual and physical identity.
As you understand your motivations, drivers, and passions, you will increase your spiritual energy and can harness it to set both spiritual and business goals. Over time, you will learn how to transform these goals into actionable items and eventually into success. Your financial goals for your business will not be rooted in your “self,” but rather, in how you can make things better for others or solve problems around you.
You will also find that carrying your spirituality with you into the office increases your happiness in your personal life too. This is because it allows you to be your authentic self all of the time. This increased happiness will translate into more compassion, less stress, better communication, and more energy in the workplace. With these characteristics, you will grow into a higher-quality leader.
Spirituality and religion
Many spiritual people also consider themselves religious. They seek ways to incorporate their religious practices into their professional life.
While prayer is one of those common religious practices, it was traditionally considered inappropriate in professional settings. So many leaders who practiced their religion devoutly at home didn’t bring it to the office with them. But thankfully, times are changing.
Religious executives are increasingly practicing prayer in the workplace, and many see actual results from their efforts. They find that prayer guides their decisions, comforts them, reduces stress, and improves relationships.
Some individuals who recognize that G-d is the owner of their business have even started office prayer impact teams. These teams combine the spiritual and professional goals of their teams and unlock success through the act of many people praying for the same outcome.
Now look at your own business and professional life. Are you placing enough emphasis on prayer, or is it the one thing you are missing out on in your busy day-to-day schedule? Is being mindful and spiritual enough, or do you feel the calling to take it a step further?
Are you ready to incorporate prayer into your business strategy? Start by learning how to formulate specific intentional prayers for business. These prayers will help you in all different aspects of your business life, and yes, they really work.
How can prayer make me more successful?
In the same way, you would consult a mechanic if you have trouble with your car. You should also consult with your heavenly Creator whenever you face challenges in your personal or professional life.
Incorporating daily intentional prayers in your business life can help ensure you remain on track to run your business in a way that aligns with your core values. It can also help you hear G-d’s voice more clearly and make better decisions feeling confident that G-d is on-board with your plans.
For example, if you have a problem that seems overwhelming at work, you can ask G-d through prayer to tackle it with you. Prayer can even help you to find a more satisfying career because G-d alone knows what your heart truly desires and also the capacity of your talents.
Sounds great, right? It is. However, it isn’t always easy. Sometimes, you just don’t know the right words to say or how to make your prayers intentional and specific, so you give up or fall out of practice. When this happens, once again, you may find yourself regulating prayer to just your personal life.
That’s why, although prayer and a connection with G-d are very personal things, strategies exist that you can use to construct more effective prayers and keep your habit of prayer in the workplace until you see the results. Reading “How to Be More Successful in Business with Prayer” will help you understand the proper formula to use.
