Small Business owner, do you need prayer for anything?

As I vamp up with Chaplains for Businesses in the Boise area focusing on Small Businesses, I want to ask a question. As a business leader, what would you like to see with your company’s chaplain?
I have a vast amount of experience in many denominations. I have been a Christian since 1987. I have prayed in the Healing Rooms for a few years, and I was a Convener in the Order of St. Luke the Physician for 4 years, teaching healing to people in any denomination. In a Calvary Chapel, I was a Prayer Counselor for 6 years and I did Women’s One on One Discipleship for 5 years. I have taught various bible classes and seminars across the country in various cities and denominations.
I recently spoke at a Christian Businessmen’s Luncheon. My husband asked me how I felt to be the only woman there. I told him I felt fine…because it was about prayer, not gender. I was another Christian among other Christians.
I recently discovered on LinkedIn a 501C in Alexandria, MN called Chaplains Caring for Companies. I like how they say that they are “not about promoting religion- any religion- in the workplace.” They are there to “listen to the problems and concerns of the employee…” They are considered to be an “Employee Care Program.” These comments are on their FAQ’s page.
On their Testimonies page are some Presidents of companies giving their review of having a Chaplain visit their employees weekly with a few minutes each…establishing a rapport so that when a crisis hits, they have a face with the name before they come to tend to the need.
I began Chaplains for Businesses with Single Moms in mind to have them join me as Chaplains for the local businesses. So as I start out talking to various small business owners, I hope to hear what would make this an effective part for their businesses. My main focus is the business owners, then their employees.
I would love to hear your feedback on your ideas and/or other chaplaincy programs around the world listing their web links so that I can check it out. No sense re-creating what might already exist with other chaplain programs. I will give credit to whomever I receive from.
Thanks for reading.
In Christ Name,
