The Power of Prayer for Executive Business Leaders (Episode # 424)

Just as God revealed to the King of Israel what the King of Syria said in his bedchamber, God also reveals what’s going on in our workplaces. He tells us what we cannot know through human means. He reveals who is for us, who is against us, and His plan for how to respond. In this episode, Dr. Karen shares the reasons business leaders must pray to God without ceasing. Prayer is the vehicle God uses for relationship, revelation, instruction, participation, and victory/success in life including the workplace.
