Prayer for the work we do

I came across a prayer about work, which I then edited it for greater clarity. I welcome any comments you may have.

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 place. I acknowledge your lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished within this place of work.

Lord Jesus, I thank you for the gifts you have given to me. I do not take them lightly but commit myself to using them responsibly and well. Give me a fresh supply of truth, patience and love on which to draw as I do my job.

Anoint me with creativity, ideas and energy. Help me to see that even my smallest task can bring you honor if I offer it to you. When I am weary, send fresh strength and power from your Holy Spirit.

Grant that the work I do and the way I do it will bring blessing and encouragement to all whom I contact today. And even in my most stressful moments, grant that I may rest in you.

In the name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen.
