The Workplace Prayer

 

 I found this inspiring prayer about a year ago. The author is ‘anonymous’ (no relation to me).

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 my workplace.

I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished this day.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts and skills 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 truth and beauty on which to draw as I do my job today. Bless my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.

Lord, when I’m confused, guide me – when I’m weary, energize me.

Lord, 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, light and courage to all that I come into contact with today.

And Oh Lord, even in this days most stressful moments, may I rest in You.

In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
