Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. Psalm 118:5

Prayer doesn’t have to be pretty. It just has to BE.

Remember a time when things in your business seemed so dark, so stagnant that there seemed no way out? No light at the end of the tunnel?

Maybe you’re there now.

If you’re not there now and you found that hidden door opened, how did you find it?


For me, every time I find that way out through prayer. Trust me, it’s happened more than once. Because the world is noisy and chaotic, and it’s easy to get caught up in what results and growth “should” be like.

Sometimes it’s been on my knees crying out in sobs. Sometimes it’s been quiet muttering. Sometimes it’s even facedown on the floor, like a toddler tantrum (there’s a visual for you: 50-something woman throwing a tantrum, yelling at God).

Hey listen, prayer doesn’t have to be pretty. It just has to BE.

Throughout His word, God reminds us that he inclines His ear to us. He hears us, and He frees us. In this verse, “set me free” is translated in some texts as “He set me in a broad place.” Like we said last week: in wide open spaces, unencumbered or restrained. He breaks chains, He opens doors, and He frees us from our (often self-imposed) prison cells.

There is freedom in prayer. I hope you’ll try it today wherever you are in business. DM me if you need support in prayer over something today!
