Prayer For Strength And Courage At Work
O Lord, we are at the limits of our power to help. For what we have left undone, forgive us. For what you have helped us to do, we thank you. For what must be done by others, lend your strength. Now shelter us in your peace which passes our understanding.
God, you are my help and comfort; you shelter and surround me in love so tender that I may know your presence with me, now and always.
Father, Today, I forgot that I am your child, I lost my identity, just so lonely and tired. I felt small and wounded, my spirit lacked hope, Confusion came over my mind and my heart. Then a small seed of prayer formed and cried out to you, Father, my Father come make me anew. Slowly and gently a new feeling grew. I'm adopted and cherished, held safe in you. I inherit the Kingdom, I'm known and I'm loved. I belong, I have value to heaven above. I need not reject myself, for you will be, The strength in my weakness, I'm here Lord use me! Then I felt your great Spirit rise up within, Cutting through chains that bind, washing each sin. I began to wake up, to seek and to find, A crown of salvation that covers my mind. A strong coat of righteousness, I wear over my heart, And a bright belt of truth which sets me apart. For the sword of the Spirit is truly my guide, I stand with feet ready, in Your love I reside.
I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith. Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit's guiding as I journey onwards with you. I love you Father. Amen.
Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel. My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour Moment by moment I choose to lean on You, For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You And praise You that on one glorious day When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered We shall walk together again.
Father, thank you that you sent your Son to bring me life Life in the fullness Life for eternity Thank you that I share in Christ's resurrection life That Christ is alive in me And His Spirit dwells deeply in my being Right now I receive your healing I receive the same power that raised Christ from the grave I receive Your life I receive Your strength Thank you that all things are possible for those who believe Thank you that you are moving in me right now May I continue to receive from you This hour and every hour. Amen.
Dear Lord, I come before you and ask for Your strength within me. A strength not of the world but of Your kingdom. To refrain from judgement and feast on love. To push out greed and hold tight to joy. To dispel pride and rise with humility. To quell anger and rest in self control. To shun greed and rest in giving. To turn from power and embrace service. To let go of resentment and rest in peace. To push through fear and walk forwards in grace. To run with faith, soar with forgiveness, And allow your eternal strength to abide with me. Amen.
O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, grant us a safe lodging and a holy rest, and peace at the last.
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Amen.
