I wanted to provide you with a summary of resources from Crossroads for 2015. Hopefully, this is a post you can bookmark and refer back to as needed. It will include a list of the most read Crossroads posts this year, plus a summary of resource posts and other blogs/sites that we read and look for resources ourselves!
One of the things we learned from our Google Analytics this year is that different forms of prayer in business and praying for business were the most searched-for terms that brought new readers to our site. Here is a list of our top posts that have to do with prayer:
- Stress Solutions: 10 Ways To Pray About Your Business
- How to Pray for Your Business
- 5 Ways to Pray for Your Clients
- Prayer at Work: Passion or Desperation
- My New Business Prayer Habit
