A Workday Prayer

Posted: August 6, 2012 in Devotionals, Endurance, Hope, Perseverance, Resilience, Serenity, Vision

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for men.
Colossians 3:23 (NIV)

Lord Jesus,
as I enter this workplace,
I bring Your Presence with me.
I speak Your peace,
Your grace and Your perfect order
into the atmosphere of this workplace.

I acknowledge Your Lordship over all
that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished
within these walls.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts
You have deposited in me.
I do not take them lightly,
but commit to using them
responsibly and well.

Give me a fresh supply of faith
on which to draw as I do my job.

Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy
so that even my smallest task
may bring you honour.

Lord, when I’m confused, guide me;
when I’m weary energize me;
when I’m burned out,
infuse me with the light
of Your Holy Spirit.

May the work I do
and the way I do it
bring hope, life, and courage
to all that I come in contact with today.

And Oh Lord,
even in this day’s most
stressful moments,
may I rest in You.

In the name of my Lord
and Savior
Jesus Christ I pray.
