Work Day Prayer

“Work Day Prayer”


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 place of work.

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 truth and beauty; on which to draw as I do my job.

Help me solve the problem which lies hidden beneath my shortcomings.

Do not deliver me from these symptoms before I see what they mean.

Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.

Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. Lord when I am burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit. Give me the strength to accomplish the task at hand.

May the work that I do and the way that 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 moment may I rest in You. In the name of Jesus my savior I pray. Amen.

3 thoughts on “Work Day Prayer

  1. This morning, like many mornings i feel like there is a fog creeping in behind my eyeballs (Fog rolls in). I can’t seem to think straight. I struggle to my feet as i stumble down the hall in an attempt to get to the coffee pot. “Lord”, i groan, “Oh Lord Jesus help me”, is all i can get out and even that is not in words intelligible enough for any human to understand, just a moan…

    I finally smile a little bit as i realize, “that is enough”.

    If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.

    Romans 8:22-27

    22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
