Hi my name is Philip Wendell Paloma. You can call me Levi! I am a community Pastor here in the Philippines. I had been in the ministry of intercession for 6 years. I had been praying and interceding for businesses here in the Philippines and overseas. I had prayed for businesses in different industries but I am only called to pray for Christian businesses. The concept of hiring business intercessors is famous in Christian businesses here in the Philippines. This year the Lord gave me a command to create a group of intercessors that will be focused mainly on praying for Christian businesses in the marketplace. I answered the call of God and created Prophetic Marketplace Intercessors. We are a group of prophetic prayer warriors and lovers of the Lord Jesus Christ called to intercede for Christian businesses so they can become presence driven Kingdom Enterprises in the marketplace. We believe in the prophetic move of the Holy Spirit for Christian businesses. We believe that Christian Businesses should be the head and not the tail! We pray that they will come to know their calling and mission in the marketplace.
“And these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.”
Imagine running a business covered in prayer! There will be no room for attacks coming from the enemy to hinder the blessings of God and cause confusion and delay in business operations. I had prayed for covering and protection for several local businesses here in the Philippines and I am currently praying for businesses overseas. A business without covering from God can absorb anything from the enemy. That is why I believe that intercessors are there to pray and cover the management team, all employees, clients and customers as well as vendors from the attacks of the enemy. Business Intercessors are there to cover the business and its operations and transactions. We are stationed to be watchmen for the business. All for God’s glory!
“But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.”
As intercessors we are also called to pray for the salvation of all employees in the business. We stand on the gap for the business and pray for repentance if there are any unrighteous acts. We are called to close open doors of the enemy in the business because of sin and unrighteousness. We are positioned to pray and ask God to restore every opportunity and blessing that the enemy has stolen in the business. I had seen these things happen with my own eyes and I had been standing on the gap for Christian businesses for years. I had seen how God punishes a business because of disobedience and how he showers them with blessings as they fully obey the Lord. I had seen how the Lord restores every stolen opportunity and blessings as the business repents from any unrighteousness.
"I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.”
As intercessors, we are called to prophetically receive from God. As an intercessor, we must live a holy lifestyle and practice communion with God daily. This is actually the best part for me! I love the Lord and it is a joy to commune with Him Daily! As we commune with God and intercede for the business, the Lord will reveal prophetic instructions for improving business operations and increasing sales in business transactions. As intercessors, we are not given authority to control the business but to reveal what the Lord is saying to the management team. The business management team has the control and decisions over the business. Prophetic Business Intercessors are there to say “Thus sayeth the Lord”. I am continually praying and receiving instructions from the Lord for increasing sales and revenue for businesses. I had also been praying for effective business marketing strategies. I had prayed and ask the Lord to cover all business operations and transactions with His favor so these businesses can see fruitfulness and breakthroughs. With the favor of God in the business, the business will be able to accomplish its tasks! And in my 6 years of intercession, I have seen many business breakthroughs, growth and expansion and I saw business success! As we continually come boldly to the throne of God and lay down all requests before His feet, the Lord will shower the business with blessing out of His faithfulness and goodness to those who fully obey Him!
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is He.”
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
As an intercessor, we are also called to pray for wisdom and guidance for the business management team. I had joined in management team meetings to pray and intercede as they discuss business matters. I had prayed and received business directions and submitted these revelations to the management team. Usually, my revelations would confirm the ideas of the managers so they would know what their next step will be for running the business. A business fully dedicated to obey the will of the Lord will surely receive rewards. It is a joy in my heart to see these businesses grow and expand as they become God’s light and salt in the marketplace. I am excited to pray more and see Christian businesses lead and take their place of authority in the marketplace! This is the right timing to answer the call of the Lord in the marketplace and I pray that we will all accomplish our tasks and assignments from God before His return so we can be called faithful stewards and managers of God’s resources. Let us desire to hear these words from our God, “Well done, my good and faithful servant!”
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.
All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.“
