The Economy/Business/Labor
Suggested Scriptural references ...
Reverence for the L-rd is the foundation of true wisdom.  The rewards of wisdom come to all who obey Him.  Psalm 111:10
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity. Proverbs 2:7
Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.  Titus 2:6-8

Suggested prayers ...
We ask, L-rd, for Your divine solutions for America's moral and financial rebirth.
Creator of heaven and earth, Your splendor is evident in the ability You give us to think, create, and solve challenges.  Please give those in business, labor and government the guidance and wisdom they need.
L-rd, we plead for You to lead us to G-dly, inspired and creative solutions for our out-of-control relationship with money and debt.
We ask You to restore ethics, morality and fair dealings to business, labor and government.
We pray for those in business, finance, economics and government to recognize and adopt Your principles and priorities, asking that You prosper and give favor to those who do.
We ask You L-rd, to restore us to full adherence to fiscal responsibility in the public and private sectors.
We ask for a system of fair taxes that supports appropriate government services while encouraging economic opportunity.
We pray for the rebirth and restoration of free market principles. 
We pray for those who are caught up in dependency on government, asking that they be set free.
We especially ask You to bless believers the work of their hands.  Guard their hearts and minds from greed and allow them favor as they conduct their business.
L-rd, we ask You to cultivate in us an “attitude of gratitude” about provisions of life gained and shared honorably, and give us the strength to resist a culture of materialism and covetousness.
We ask you to expose and destroy the business of sex trafficking and other businesses that profit from the destruction and abuse of others.  We pray for the rescue and healing of the victims and for the healing and transformation of the perpetrators.
Yes, Father, I agree and offer these prayers in the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. Amain.
