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 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 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're doing, and everything You're going to do.

In the Name of Jesus I pray, with much love and Thanksgiving..... Amen.
