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 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 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.

Anoint 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, 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 our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I pray.

 

Amen

What a wonderful prayer.I’ve printed it off and will pray that prayer each morning when I arrive in the office.

I pray that I may live that prayer, not just at work but in every situation I find myself in. I pray you too might have found inspiration in this prayer.
