A Workplace 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 this office. 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 given 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.

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.

May the work I do and the way I do it, bring hope, life, and courage to all I come in contact with today. And, O Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moments, may I rest in You. In the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I pray.
