Faith in Business Prayer

Faith in Business Prayer is a network of Christians in business who pray for each other and for the working world around them.

The spur for starting this network came in March 2020 when the scale of the coronavirus pandemic became clear. Our prayers are particularly concentrated on COVID-19 and the impact this is having on workplaces and working practices, locally and globally.

Every fortnight on alternate Wednesdays, Richard Higginson sends out an email letter with reflections on the latest situation and suggestions for prayer. Every three months the group meets online to share needs and concerns, and to pray for each other. If you would like to join this network please contact Richard by completing our Contact Us form. Confidentiality protocols are observed.

Faith in Business also encourages prayer for business more generally. Below you will find prayers for people in the full range of occupations, including business. Please make use of these.
