I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would bless the corporations in America. Change them from the inside out, God. Bring revival and use them as forces for good, not forces for evil.

Analysis. Our Founding Fathers were diligently attuned to the threat of tyrannical government, but a lesser-discussed threat has arisen in the last few decades.

Post a prayer for your state!

 

Big corporations and large companies have become international purveyors of ideology and wield immense influence.

For example, Amazon has four times as many employees as Belize has residents. Walmart has more employees than Slovenia has citizens.

Now, so many of these companies are pushing a radical agenda on issues like gender and sexuality across the globe, putting them on the front lines of the culture war.

Now, a leading conservative voice, Matt Schlapp, chairman of the leading conservative organization CPAC, unveiled “a new shared strategy to reprimand corporations that have gone woke.” They published a letter saying that no Republican seeking a leadership position will have their support without to not meet with or work with these kinds of companies.

From the letter:

For the first time in almost 30 years, Republicans will achieve a majority largely without the support of Fortune 100 companies. Instead, conservatives will take control led by activists and entrepreneurs who are exhausted and offended by the radical left policies pushed by these publicly traded companies. 

I’m not endorsing this decision necessarily, just pointing out that the war for the hearts, minds, and influence of big business is well underway.

Will the church join in?

And on top of that, if these companies are larger and more influential than many nations today, shouldn’t we be treating them as a mission field?

We need an army of Kingdom warriors to reach these companies from the inside both to win them for Christ and to bring reformation of their ideas that are pervading every corner of the globe.

They have become a battlefield in the culture war and a mission field for the gospel.

Insider Intercessory Information

There are many ways to share the gospel, but in my experience working in the private sector…

Radical love and radical boldness are the way forward.

For example, a few years ago while working for a private company in the Washington, D.C., area, one of my coworkers asked me to help her pick up some furniture she had purchased online. Now, this coworker had a bit of Catholicism in her family but had ventured into alternative spirituality at this point.

These chairs she wanted me to pick up were very far away and would take up most of my evening driving. But I did it anyway.

Radical Love.

At the same time, I had an idea. I told her, “I’ll help you get the chairs, but you have to let me share the gospel on the drive.”

Radical Boldness.

(At this point we had had a few conversations about faith and were friendly. I think she thought it was sweet but naive that I believed such a thing.)

She thought about my offer for a moment and then agreed. “Deal.”

Usually we should just love people with no strings attached, but I think in this instance the Lord gave me wisdom. Plus we had the relational capital for me to be coy and push her a bit.

The night came, and I picked her up in my car. She got in and immediately said, “ok what’s the pitch?”

She was playful but listened as I shared the story of Scripture for probably half an hour.

She did not get saved that day, but I believe that I planted seeds that day that others can come along and water. The Holy Spirit can keep working on her.

All this to say, radical love and radical boldness can give us opportunities to turn the private companies leading our nation into Kingdom outposts in the next reformation and revival.

We need to change how we see corporations. They are not faceless logos that only influence Silicon Valley or New York City. They are front and center in the war for whether or not our nation will have a Biblical worldview.

And they have millions of people who need to meet their Father.

So…let’s get to work.

With that in mind, let us pray.

-Father, we ask that you pour out revival on the corporations and companies in our nation. Give conviction to the leaders and Kingdom workers to share the gospel with radical love and radical boldness. 

-Lord, we ask that you bring about a reformation in the private sector. No longer let corporations be the purveyors of evil ideologies. Bring them back to Biblical foundations and principles, Lord.

-Father, give us courage to boldly share the gospel with our coworkers. Give us a radical love and true obedience to share the truth!

Verses to press into as you intercede on this issue:

“And should not I pity Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know their right hand from their left, and also much cattle?” -Jonah 4:11

Large companies such as Wal-Mart and Google etc…. Weild too much power because they have too much money.
They make huge mistakes when they form ties with China.
There are many Christians in China who are shut up and shut down by the Chinese Government.
America has always been a Christian nation but those within our nation who hold the power have formed ungodly ties with the pagan nation of China and China is a most wicked nation and evil regime. I pray for the Christians and the sweet and innocent citizens of China.
Who were the people who sold our nation off to China and still are ?
America and it’s land belongs to the American people not to China !
While we are praying for revival to break loose in the mega rich and power wielding companies of America we also have to pray for the downfall of the Chinese Government and for those who greedily sold our land off to China acre by acre to be held accountable. We pray Father that You will destroy every tentacle that has America tied to China.

Father in Jesus Holy name we pray that You would reveal every person who prostituted America for personal gain. We pray for the restoration of our wonderful nation that we would see a resurgence of Christianity roll across our nation and it’s people , Government and all business and Church’s.
We pray for protection over the Christians and innocent people of China and for the absolute and complete downfall of the Government , military and all weapons of their military . We pray as You remove those in control that You would replace them with Your children and that one day , China would no longer have the CCP and that China will be known as a free and Godly nation.
In Jesus Holy name,
Amen!

I am praying that they will stop selling their businesses to China. How will we save America if China owns most of us??? Stop worshipping the almighty buck and worship the Lord our Savior and pray for His wisdom in making these decisions. I pray it is not too late.

LOVE the “radical boldness” approach to sharing the gospel with a co-worker requesting a favor! Great (and loving) idea!

I’m adopting this! (Love IFA – I learn so much here!)
