A prayer before work
I was promoted at the end of March and I love my new job! I’m blessed to have a boss that wants me to succeed and is very helpful. She is more than willing to answer my texts on her days off or she will call the office so she can walk me through something I’m stuck on.
I have to admit, my confidence level goes up and down and I have days where I sit staring at the computer screen wondering what to do.
I found this prayer in my Laudate App which is free on iTunes. Before I start work, I sit in the breakroom and read it carefully from my phone. It has helped me tremendously. It’s beautiful and it covers every aspect of the work day.
I’m sharing it here:
Morning prayer before starting work
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 my work.
I acknowledge your power over all that will be done, spoken, thought and decided within these walls.
Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with.
I commit to use 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 that I come in contact with 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 are doing, and everything, you are going to do.
In the name of Jesus I pray, with much love and thanksgiving.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
