A prayer for the beginning of the working day

Cross Water ImageMy heavenly father,
as I enter this work place, I bring your presence with me.
I speak your peace, your grace, your mercy
and your perfect order into my work.
I acknowledge your power over all that will be done,
spoken, thought and decided within these walls.
Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with.
I commit to use them responsibly in your honour.
Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job.
Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy,
so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring you glory.

Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize 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.
And oh Lord, when I leave this place, give me travelling mercy.
Bless my family and home to be in order as I left it.
Lord, I thank you for everything you’ve done,
everything you are doing, and everything you are going to do.
In the name of Jesus I pray, with much love and thanksgiving.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
