Research and development is prayer


In China, Research and Development consists only of tearing apart the latest iPhone to copy it. In the U.S., pharmaceuticals spend twice as much on marketing than R&D. What do those two facts say about their industrial strength?

Ever increasingly, a company or nation stands or falls thanks to its R&D. If this department is strong, cranking out new products that consumers want, prosperity follows. If it is weak, economy lags.

Prayer is the R&D of your ministry. You research the direction the Spirit is leading. You develop advances that you otherwise wouldn’t have. Prayer is the lifeblood of ministry. Where prayer is strong, the ministry flourishes.

Where ministers only copy others’ successes or dedicate more time to spin-doctoring than true prayer, ministry is fragile.
