Lord Jesus, as I enter this work place,
I bring your presence with me
Let me speak your peace and Your grace in all I say
Bring your perfect order and mutual respect
into the atmosphere of this office.
I acknowledge your Lordship over all
That will be spoken, through and decided,
and accomplished within these walls.
Lord Jesus, I thank you for the gifts
you have deposited in me.
I do not take them lightly,
But commit to using them responsibly and well.
Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty
on which to draw as I do my job.
Anoint my creativity, my ideas, and my energy
So that even my smallest task may bring You honor.
Lord, when I am confused, guide me.
When I am weary, energize me.
Lord, when I am burned out,
Infuse me with the light of your Holy Spirit.
May the work that I do and the way that I do it,
Bring hope, life and courage
to all that I come in contact with today.
And, oh Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moments…
may I rest in You.
In your strong and powerful name, Lord Jesus Christ, I pray.
