In the book of Exodus, we find Moses receiving instructions on how to craft the items and articles of the tabernacle. The details laid out by God are spectacular! Moses received instructions for specific designs, materials to use and artistic touches to add, and no doubt when they were finished-they were a sight to see! The bible also points out in Exodus 35 that certain artisans were noticed by God and hand selected to do His work “See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and He has filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in knowledge and all manner of workmanship.”
Your work, whether a trade or business, matters to God and can be greatly anointed of Him for His use and His glory!

A PRAYER FOR ANOINTING:
Lord, we pray for every business owner that is in your service. We ask for anointing upon the work of our hands, yes; establish the work of our hands. We commit all of our endeavours to You and ask that Your favour be upon them. Lord, may our businesses flourish and grow and become prosperous. Keep us from turning our businesses and our work into idols, and may our work and income be for Your glory and Your purpose. Give us open doors and opportunities in our nation and community for business but also to share the gospel through our work and testimony. Bless us that we may be a blessing financially to Your kingdom and our local church. Give us wisdom when making crucial decisions and keep us from costly mistakes. Help us to learn from our failures and never give in to a spirit of depression, anxiety, and despair. Nothing is impossible with You, Lord and we claim that for our businesses and trades today, in Jesus’ name- Amen!
