A Workplace Prayer

Lord Jesus, as I enter my work place,
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 and 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 me creativity, my ideas, and my
energy so that even my smallest
task may bring You honour.

Lord, when I am confused, guide me.
When I am weary, energise me.
Lord, when I am burnt out, infuse me
with the Light of Your Spirit.
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 Lord, even in this day's most stressful
moments, may I rest in You.

In Your strong and powerful name, Jesus Christ I pray
Amen

I don't always, unfortunately. But I'm learning to do it more consistently.
