Praying for the Ministry and Business of Minetta Hare- Remember Lydia -a Christian Entrepreneur Acts 16: 13-15, 40

I praise you , Creator God for making men and women in Your own image. Give creativity and good ideas to Your children who serve you in the marketplace. Fill them with your Holy Spirit, granting them the skills, abilities and knowledge needed to accomplish their tasks and goals and to glorify You. (Gen 1:27; Ex 21:3) Give them decisionmaking wisdom. God give Christians in the marketplace a spirit of wisdom and revelation so they can know and follow you in their work.( Eph 1:17; Prov 3:5-6; Is 30:21). God you hold the hearts of kings in Your hands. We ask that our Christian borthers and sisters in the workplace will find favor with key people. (Dan1:9; Eccl 4: 9-12) Grant them favor and may marketplace believers pursue excellence to your Glory. ( Prov 21:1; Phil 4:8) ( excerpt from Strategic Prayers for Marketplace Influencers by Arlyn Lawrence)

5 AM Praying with My Girlfriends’ Business. Chief Girlfriend and visionary Jillian Blackwell, and the women on the prayer call, for the month of August are praying for a girlfriend’s business or ministry each day. Since January 2011,daily women consistently join the 5 AM prayer call every morning all over the nation,- New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, etc to seek the Lord ,to pray for others, themselves and for their girlfriends’ business.

Many believers are business owners or have key positions in business. Christians in the workplace and business owners should have a practical and spiritual influence in the community. In the bible Lydia was a business woman who was a seller of purple dye and an influential women. While Lydia, who worshipped the one God of the Jews, and a group of others were praying by the riverside, they encountered Paul and Silas. Paul related to them the Gospel. Lydia opened her ears and heart and became the first Christian convert . She was baptized and then her household. She became a Christian and a marketplace influencer. The Bible states that she urged Paul to abide in her home and opened her home to Christian missionaries. She opened her doors when Paul and Silas came out of prison for healing a demented girl to her right mind. Acts 16:16 While serving Christians it seems that Lydia continued to carry on her business.

Believers should pray for entrepreneurs. Look at how businesses affect our economy and the workplace. We want God to move powerfully in the lives of business owners who operate in integrity and excellence. For example, on August 9, 2011, (yesterday) we prayed for Missionary/Evangelist Minetta Hare -a global focused woman, who empowers women in prayer, training, coaching, global missions and in global entrepreneurship. Her ministry is Faith At Work Ministries and one of her businesses is the Hare Group International. Minetta is the founder and visionary of Lydia Circle for Christian Business and Professional Women, Faith At Work Ministries and Men of Valor. She is a global woman that has a hands on ministry for serving woman and men in time of need and as they rise in their ministry or business with love, prayer, wisdom, frankness, compassion and the gift of hospitality. She does missions and business globally and has served in South Africa ( over 12 mission trips), Ghana, Israel, Jamaica and etc.

Join us in praying for her specific prayer requests and for what the Holy Spirit places in your heart. You may be led to partner with her or to contact her. Minetta’s ministry and one of her businesses and the specific prayer requests are as follows:

Faith At Work Ministries
Preparing, Training, Equipping & Mobilizing Laborers & Servant Leaders for
God’s Harvest Field, the World
Matthew 28:18-20, Isaiah 61:1-3, 2 Timothy 2:2 describe what we believe God has called us to do –make disciples of all nations by the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ through many means – economic empowerment and business development, trade missions, entrepreneurial training, medical outreaches, building schools and medical facilities, or one-on-one sharing the gospel. The greatest mission field today is the marketplace. Jesus recruited His disciples, who had occupations and professions as fishermen and tax collector from the marketplace. This probably sounds like more than any one ministry can do- and it is! Because of this, God has brought together a team of dedicated men and women to work with us to carry out this vision which is really HIS VISION.

I Know a Real Life Missionary- Pray for Missionaries by Linda Fegins

Minetta Hare is in the yellow cap with blue cape out front.

Many of us may have an outdated stereotyped mindset about missionaries such as the image of the old colonialist type or the Catholic nun dressed in long dark clothing. However,  modern day missionaries do not fit into  a specific category . The one common factor they all must have in common is love for God’s people, and a mindset that is obedient to God’s command and their call to “Go” throughout the earth to deliver a word and to help the oppressed, downtrodden  and the lost.

For over 25 years I have known a woman of purpose, Missionary Minetta Hare. While she is an entrepreneur, and a “wanna be” comedian, her calling and passion is to serve God’s people as a missionary/ evangelist. She has traveled throughout Africa and Jamaica to heed the “Macedonian Call” where people need help. Minetta unashamedly states she is “called to make a difference in lives of others around the world” and knew this since she was a child. She is “dedicated and committed with great passion to her purpose in life to preach and teach Christ”.

She is the visionary for Children of Hope International. On November 4, 2010 for the 5th time this year she is traveling on  a mission tour  to bring medical supplies, clothes ,hope and a Word from God to those in need. On November 4th she will travel to South Africa, Botswana and Ghana. She needs partners of Hope to help raise funds to purchase the necessary medical supplies and materials for the upcoming mission tours. Her goal is to provide food, clothing, medicines and spiritual enrichment to orphans and abandoned children around the world. If you want more information or to partner with her, see her on Facebook or go to

On August 8 through August 19, 2010 she traveled to Ghana, West Africa to answer the call for help those who live in the midst of hopelessness, and despair. She needed to $10,000 to conduct a medical clinic, distribute free medicines, buy back the freedom of several enslaved children, clothe and feed them, provide shelter and food and most of all share the love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  In 2009, her mission team served over 600 children including their families.

She has conducted an entrepreneurial training seminar for single mothers in Africa. The team introduced the new project and product – filtered water packs. This project will give the women an opportunity to earn a living and to provide for themselves and their children.

 Missionaries need our prayers to carry out the “Great Commission” that the Lord spoke of in Matthew 28:19-20 to enable them to evangelize the world as well as our homes and cities. The evangelization of the world depends upon prayer.  ‘Missionaries are like soldiers on the front line of a fierce battle”, states one prayer warrior Heather Kaiser who has designed a prayer card for Missionaries and their families. So how or what should we pray for missionaries? Pray that:

  • He/she will minister without hindrances. Pray for protection, health, wisdom and protection.  Pray for the work God has called her /him to do throughout the nations.
  •  God will grant him/her good health and protect them from evil men and physical danger.
  • God will give him/her a wide door of opportunity to preach the Word and to free by the power of Your Word and the Holy Spirit those who are oppressed, depressed and lost.
  • Deliverance from the attack of the enemy and from physical, emotional and spiritual harm. (Rom 13:31)
  •  Jehovah Nissi will go before the team and prepare the hearts of those who will hear the Word and receive the medical help.  Let there be effective communication between those who minister and those who are ministered to. Provide clear language interpretation for all.
  • Pray that souls will be saved, men and women will be discipled and that spiritual growth will occur. Pray that he/she will make disciples who also can teach others to expand the kingdom.
  • Wisdom, divine revelation of God’s Word and sound judgment is exercised by him/her and the team.
  • The families of him/her and the others are at peace and comforted to know God has the team in his loving care.
  • Pray for his/her health and deliverance from disease.
  • Pray for more workers. Ask God to send more workers to help him/her to serve in the location.
  • Pray for fruitfulness.  Pray that he/she will bear much fruit from their labors for the Kingdom. (Gal 6:9; Col1:10).
  • Pray for financial support and resources to carry out the mission. Pray that the Lord will supply his/her financial needs. Touch the hearts of others to contribute before they are asked.
  • Pray for government stability and acceptance of the missionary.
  • Pray for marriages and the children of missionaries who must adapt to his/her calling. Numerous separations can be trying. Children can become rebellious and resentful.
