Prayer For Challenges At Work

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) I work with people who often put their work off on other people, and it is starting to frustrate me. I am not sure if it is something they do intentionally or if they are not aware of it.

Help them to see their gifts and talents and the desire to use them to fulfill the duties of their work. Give them confidence in their own ability to complete their work and take pride in hard work rather than laziness.

Give me the boldness to say no. To no longer take on work that is not my responsibility and to explain why I refuse to do so, in a way that they understand without causing division.

Righteous God, I know that You came to save Your people out of life challenges and to offer to us compassion. Therefore Lord, I will trust in You and will not be afraid, because You God are my salvation. In this work situation, I declare that You are my daily strength and my song. In You there is victory. So Father, I pray this prayer of thanks, knowing that You will always make a way, Amen.

Dear God, I thank you for the blessings that I have received, for giving me life, good family and friends, food to eat, good health, safe travels, and everything You have done for me. I am facing a big challenge with my work, every day I wake up with a heavy heart, and I am full of anxiety and fear of what may happen, I am having doubts with myself and I don't think I can overcome this alone. Please forgive me Lord God for having weak faith and sometimes think of giving up everytime I fail and make mistakes. I know that You will not give us challenges we can't overcome. I ask for your help and guidance as I complete my tasks and guide every decision that I make. Please bless us with motivation, strength, wisdom, knowledge as we do our work and help us overcome the problems we encounter with work. Amen.

(Lord) Everything at work is a competition with one of my coworkers. Although I can sometimes be competitive, the need to be competitive daily is draining.

Help my coworker to see that although a competitive nature is healthy in the workplace, we are also a team that must work in harmony without the constant need for competition. Help them to channel their competitive energy in a positive way that does not affect others negatively.

Help me to be patient, understanding that not everyone is like me. Help me to embrace their individuality and not upset by their competitive nature. Show me a kind and professional way to express my disinterest in their constant competition.

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.
