Could I please ask for your prayers regarding work.
I have someone local to me who is trying to ‘muscle’ in on my business. He wants me to work for him, I’d do exactly the same as I do now but he’d add money on the job to take a ‘cut’, which would probably result in the price being too expensive = lose work.
The problem is I’d loose all the advantages of being self employed.

I have told him no before but am going to have to tell him no again.
He is quite forceful and pretty influential locally, I imagine he’ll try to steal customers off me when I say no.

Can you pray that I am lead to do the right thing. Help me to remain strong.

Thank you

Dear Heavenly Father, We thank you for being there for us in times of need as well as times of blessings. We are coming together to ask for Your almighty blessings of favor to be over ELT in this challenging situation. 'When the enemy comes in like a flood, Your Spirit shall hold up a standard against him' Isa 59:19. We ask that all forces trying to intimidate or disengage ELT's business will stop. We also want to give You praise that Your answer to us is always' yes and amen' 2 Cor 1:20, in Jesus' Name, Amen!

I’m praying for God’s favor and direction regarding your work situation. May He intervene and protect your business as you look to Him.

Psalm 50:15 Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.

Stand your ground - be strong!
Please Lord, help ELT to be strong in telling the person involved to bugger off and leave them alone, and to help ELT get more work on his/her own. Amen.
I'd just tell them straight off to rack off TBH. And why would this person be thinking it's better for you to lose clients and lose money?
Sounds a wee bit like a pyramid scheme to me, which are illegal as far as I know.
