Prayer For Before Work
Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity... rather than a personal inconvenience. And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, 'Great is your love toward me.' You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me warts and all. That's amazing. But what's most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.

Lord, I feel confused about life at the moment I'm not sure I'm in the right place Thank you that wherever I am You have gone before You turn the night into day Sadness in joy And mourning into dancing Help me to live in this place And through my serving Bring daylight, laughter and rejoicing Amen
Lord, I offer you my work I give you the disappointment I feel I surrender by disillusionment I confess my weakness Reconnect me with You I want to live again To be fully alive Stir in me a new song May I sing for joy Envision my mind Equip my hands Anoint my feet Empower my voice For your service and your work This day and everyday Amen
Thank you for my job.
Fill the office with Your presence, inspiration, and positive energy this week.

I pray that my coworkers and I work as a team and bring out the best in each other.
Lead me through every moment and watch over me every working day.
