An increase in taxes on corporations and a more highly taxed workforce are changes Obama says we can believe in, while McCain promises to upset the applecart with immigration reform and domestic drilling. All of which will affect those running businesses post election 2008.

Since the 2006 election, when Americans are said to have voted for change by installing a Democrat-majority Congress, the result, some have argued, has been a spike in oil costs and a shift in morals issues legislation. Businesses suffer from increased fuel costs, and recently legislated gay marriage, for example, will have an affect on employee benefits, at the very least.

So how do successful business executives manage for constant change in their personal lives? Meditation, exercise, and prayer are all tools often cited as stress relievers. In the Company of Prayer, a subscription email prayer service devoted to the spiritual needs of business executives is one way for them to quickly get into prayer mode before the start of each workday. The Morning Briefing emails provide a quick, daily prayer specifically to businessmen and women who find prayer to be an inspirational tool in the management of their professional lives.

As members of this community, subscribers receive a prayer via email each workday that is short enough to be read off a PDA and is accompanied by a pertinent, two-sentence bit of inspiration, such as a quote from a peer, newspaper headline, or bit of scripture. Furthermore, subscribers join a community of like-thinkers who then pray for each other and who can comment via the blog.

According to Executive Editor Leslie Bianco, "As workdays grow longer, time for personal growth, including in the area of spirituality, necessarily overlaps with the business agenda. A daily prayer prompt appeals to these executives who also appreciate simply being reminded that they are in company with others who share their emphasis on faith."

Change is a way of life, and is an obvious element of the life of a business. Successful businesses are those that efficiently adapt to change. Successful business leaders are those who employ a multitude of skills and techniques in leading that change, which oftentimes include practices as simple as prayer. Regardless of who becomes the next American President, change is a reality. CompanyofPrayer.com is a tool in managing for constant change.
