Here’s a prayer I came across some time ago. I like to refer to it every now and then before I face the challenges and pressures of the work day.
My Heavenly Father, as I enter this work place, I bring Your presence with me.
I speak Your peace, Your grace, Your mercy, and Your perfect order into this office.
I acknowledge Your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls.
Lord, I thank You for the gifts You have blessed me with.
I commit to using them responsibly in Your honor.
Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job.
Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring You glory.
Lord, when I am confused, guide me.
When I am weary, energize me.
When I am burned out, infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit.
May the work that I do and the way I do it bring faith, joy, and a smile to all with whom I come in contact today.
And, oh Lord, when I leave this place, give me traveling mercy.
Bless my family and home to be in order as I left it.
Lord, I thank You for everything You’ve done, everything You’re doing, and everything You’re going to do.
In the name of Jesus I pray, with much love and thanksgiving.
