Prayer, Plain and Simple

The following prayer was sent to me by a friend named Lana Williams. She found this printed prayer and passed it along. Very rich…

 

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 my workplace.

 

I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished this day.

 

Lord Jesus, I thank you for the gifts and skill 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 today.

 

Bless my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.

 

Lord, when I’m confused, guide me – when I’m weary, energize me.

 

Lord, when I’m burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit.

 

May the work I do and the way I do it bring hope, life and courage to all that I come into contact with today.

 

And, oh Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moments, may I rest in You.

 

In the name of Jesus, I pray.  Amen.
