What’s your word worth? When you make promises in your business, do you follow through with your actions? Can you be trusted?

Do your marketing and advertising materials really reflect what you’re selling or are they misleading? Do you promise one thing, then deliver something else? If you’re a service-based business, do your clients trust you to perform a task to their satisfaction, or complete a job at the stipulated time?

As a Christian entrepreneur who seeks to glorify God with her business, it’s really important to follow through on your commitments.

If you struggle to keep your promises, ask yourself why. Are you overpromising? Are you taking on more work than you can realistically complete? Do you have a problem saying no to things even when it’s clear you won’t be able to deliver on your promise?

I know that many of you have good intentions and don’t mean to break your promises, but good intentions aren’t always enough especially when your reputation is at stake. Sadly, that’s just how things work.

So if you are committed to honoring God in your business, you must learn to keep promises. It doesn’t matter whether it’s promises to your customers, spouse, kids, employees, bank, creditors or business partners.

You must be a man of your word, so don’t be too hasty when making promises or giving guarantees. Always double check that you can deliver on a promise before you make it.

You are a promise-making and promise-keeping God. I can always depend on you completely. Thank you for keeping your promises to me. I know you want me to be careful with my words, to be a promise keeper, and then stand behind them with actions, but I often fail to do so. Instead, I make excuses or claim that I have changed my mind. I have even told people, earnestly and sincerely, that I will pray for them, only to forget their prayer requests. I openly profess that I will be your devoted follower, but then I don’t keep my word. And that sullies your name. Much worse, I have broken promises I made to you. I remember pledging to never again do a certain sin—but I did. I promised to tithe, to read your Word regularly, to serve others, and to boldly share the Good News, but those statements were soon abandoned. Please do what is necessary to mold me into a person of my word, of truth and integrity.

(Depending on your business and the type of challenges you go through, you can add a personal prayer here. It is good to appreciate that business men and women go through different challenges. Also, good to note that every Friday of this novena, is a fasting Friday. It is so providential that part of Lent is in this novena. Our Fridays are; 10th, 17th and 24th)
