I received this prayer from a friend years ago. I hung it on my wall to remind myself to say it before I went to work. Just like anything else you hang on your wall, after a while you get use to it being there. You pass by it without a second thought as to why you put it there in the first place. But today, for some apparent reason, it stood out. So I decided to share it with you.
Prayer Before Starting Work
My Heavenly Father, as I enter the work place,
I bring Your presence with me.
I speak Your peace, Your grace, Your mercy, and
Your perfect order in this office.
I acknowledge Your power over all that will
Be spoken, thought, decided and done within these walls.
Lord, I thank You for the gifts You have blessed me with.
I commit to using 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 accomplishments 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 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.
Blessed my family and my home to be in order as I left it.
Lord, I thank you for everything you're going to do.
In the Name of Jesus I pray, with much love and Thanksgiving...
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU
