In order for a new business to be blessed, dedicated, and launched, most entrepreneurs do a blessing ceremony for new business, most especially for entrepreneurs who believe in God. This shows a sign of a good beginning for their new business.
Just take new business blessing as the way newborn babies are blessed, dedicated, and named soon after their birth for the purpose of protection, service, and success in their entire lifetime. Your new business is a new creation that is also capable to be treated with the same kind of energy and concern.
So having your new business blessed and dedicated through a blessing ceremony for new business will be a way of remembering God in your new business venture and starting it off with the power and protection of God for its success because God is the giver of the power to make wealth.
(Deuteronomy 8:18) “Remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth.”
A blessing ceremony for new businesses attracts the presence of God into your new business space and allows God to bless your business, providing protection, harmony, and the power to build wealth in your business activities and enterprise.
Starting a business requires major business funding and your vision, but starting your business with a blessing ceremony for new business is a sign that you have handed your business activities to God for protection and guidance all through your business activities.
While most people who don’t believe in religion shy away from new business blessings, most business owners who started off with blessing ceremonies have on so many occasions testified about how good and smooth their business prosperity has been. Now that is God’s power in action.
How To Plan A Blessing Ceremony For New Business
If you feel like making the blessing ceremony for your new business big, you can invite your friends and family members to share the blessing ceremony with you. Remember that you may also cut the ribbon for the grand opening of your new business.
If you wish to add the ribbon cutting and the program together on that day, then get your ribbon and the scissors ready for the new business blessing ceremony.
You will have to also get pink candles to share among those you invited to the new business blessing ceremony, because pink symbolizes love and kindness, while the light from the candle symbolizes the light of God.
When planning for your new business blessing ceremony, it is advisable to give yourself a month to plan the ceremony and to get on the calendars of the people you want to attend the blessing ceremony.
If your new business space is still under construction, wait until you are certain of the date the construction will be over before planing your new business blessing ceremony and never take the contractor’s word to set a date for your business blessing ceremony because many things are out of his control, and he may fail to finish his contractor work on time.
Before finalizing the date of your new business blessing, also make sure there’s no big event going on that day around your new business place, town, or city because that could pull attendees away from your new business blessing ceremony or it could take up all the parking spaces, making people not get to your ceremony.
Ask local print shops for ideas on how to print invitations cards and flyers for your new business blessing that you will post around town.
Most times, the print shops will show you examples of what they’ve done in the past, and depending on the size of your business, you choose the format you want.
Irrespective of the format you chose for the invitations and flyers of your new business blessing, the following information must be available on them:
- WHO: Your company name
- WHAT/WHY: Blessing Ceremony for our ____(new building, new location, etc.)
- WHEN: Date and time (i.e. Thursday, June 15, 20__)
- WHERE: Address for the event
- R.S.V.P.: Phone number and name
- Refreshments will be served
Prayer For Blessing A New Business
The blessing ceremony for new business is an ancient tradition that can be found in the Protestant, Roman Catholic churches, Orthodox, and amongst others.
Prayers for blessing a new business are usually performed by an ordained priest, your church pastor, or by the owner of the business themselves.
If you want to have your blessing ceremony for new business performed by an ordained priest, or your pastor, invite him to your business place to perform the blessing ceremony, and he will be happy to come.
Before he walks into your business place, your pastor or priest usually recites one or more passages from the holy gospel and makes some prayers. He then walks into your business space (Usually after you have cut your ribbon) sprinkling holy water from office to office or corner to corner while reciting the prayers for blessing a new business.
If you don’t feel the need to invite a pastor or a priest to bless your new business and you prefer to bless the business yourself, you should get anointing oil and holy water blessed by a minister that you will use to perform the blessing ceremony for new business.
As you mark the sign of the cross, say a simple prayer asking God to bless your new business. Below is an example of prayers you may perform.
(Proverbs 10:22) “The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.”
Oh Lord the Maker of Heaven and Earth, to whom is the giver of all the riches and wealth of the earth, please bless my efforts and grant me Your abundant blessings in this new business venture I’m embarking on.
I can’t do it with only my own wisdom and knowledge! Father please grant me Your divine guidance and protection and also help me make the right decisions for the success of this new business establishment.
The Scripture says that You blessed Isaac in such a way that he prospered and continued prospering. I know You have the same love for me also and You are going to do the same for me which you did for Isaac because you are God with the same power and authority.
Your word says that I can do all things through you who strengthens me, please give me the strength I need to succeed and prosper in my new business.
I totally commit all my business plans and purpose in Your able hands. Make every aspect of my business a successful and prosperous one and in return, I will be a channel of blessing to others.
Thank You, God, for answering my prayers. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
