Prayer For A Toxic Workplace
Lord, there is a toxic coworker at my workplace who is sowing discord and strife amongst other workers. Their actions are harmful and are affecting the team negatively.
Open the eyes of this individual so that they may see the harm in their own ways. I ask that forgiveness may be in the hearts of those who have been hurt by this person's actions.
If need be, help us to address this issue with professionalism to find peace at work. I ask that unity may be among us once again and that we begin to treat each other respectfully.
Lord, help my boss and me to establish a working relationship of trust. Help him/her to see that I am responsible and able to handle tasks and complete assignments on my own.
Give them confidence in my ability to do my job and to follow direction. Show me ways that I can help to establish trust and confidence with my boss. Reveal to me how I can give assure that I can do my job.
Help my boss to deal with any pressure or insecurity that he/she may be receiving from his/her own boss that is causing the micromanagement of others.
Lord, help my boss to shift his focus from my weaknesses to my strengths. Help him to see the qualities I possess that are beneficial to this company. Help me to work on my weaknesses in a way that my boss is able to see my progress and be confident in may ability.
Show me areas where my sregnths can be used more and ways that I can become better in my areas of weakness. May I be confident in you, knowing that I can do anything as long as you are here helping me.
Lord, I feel unappreciated. I work hard and go over and beyond, and my boss doesn't even seem to notice.
Help me to remain confident in my hard work and ability, regardless of the validation that I may or may not receive from others. Help me to trust that if I continue to work hard that you will cause those who are supposed to take notice to see the work that I have done. Let the opinion of others not be the source of my success, but instead trust that you see all I do and will cause me to succeed.
My Heavenly Father, as I enter this workplace I bring Your presence with me. I speak Your peace, Your grace, Your mercy, and Your perfect order in this office.

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 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. Amen.
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.

May the work that 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 moment, may I rest in you.
In the mighty name that is above all names, in the Matchless Name of my Lord and Savior Jesus I pray. Amen.
The Lord is my boss, and I shall not want. He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me. He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without murmuring and complaining.
He reminds me that He is my source and not my job. He restores my sanity every day and guides my decisions, that I might honor Him in all that I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of emails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping coworkers, discriminating supervisors, and an aging body that doesn't cooperate every morning, I still will not stop, for He is with me!
His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through. He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me. He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go.
His faithfulness and love are better than any bonus check. His retirement plan beats every 401K there is! And, when it is all said and done, I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer - and for that, I BLESS HIS NAME!!!
You know me and you love me. You hold everything together by your power and your grace. So I lay before you this difficult situation that I face. I trust that you will give me the strength and the wisdom I need to work these things through. I give you the job that I do, the responsibilities I have and the decisions I need to make. Come Lord, use me to bring peace, blessing and reconciliation in my workplace. In the name of Jesus, thank you that you are with me.
Thank you that your Spirit is working in my life to bring Kingdom blessings to the earth. I come before you with the difficulties I am experiencing with my manager. I lay before you the stress that it creates for me, and the tensions that I am aware of. Please give me great wisdom, strength and grace at this time. Help me to respect my boss, but also not to be mistreated. Give me wisdom as I seek to negotiate, to stand my ground, and to remain respectful of my work colleagues. At this time, I choose to lean on you Lord, for in you I find strength and grace.
