Prayer, Plain and Simple

“God, you are so generous. You provided, just as you promised. You said, “I will supply all your needs out of my vast store of wealth in heaven.” I believed this, and now I’ve seen you prove it, first hand. I asked for a job and you gave one!  I am so grateful. These are hard time for many people. I don’t take this gift lightly. I believe I will be a blessing to my new employer; they certainly will be a blessing to me and my family. In I’m honored with this trust! Thank you! Thank you!

Now I ask for wisdom. I have employment; I need strength and endurance to DO the job I’ve been assigned. Honestly, today I feel over my head. I have so much to learn, so many people to get to know, so many policies to master, so many new paths to walk, and seemingly all at the same time. The stress of “no-work” has been replaced by the stress of “too-much-work.” I need your help.

You have promised, in James 1, that I can ask for wisdom and you will give it. This is for me! Please grant me wisdom, today. I’m not smart enough to handle my new duties. I need insight, emotional strength, guidance with time management, empathy in relationships, creativity to solve challenges, and most of all joy when I feel overwhelmed by the expectations others are placing on me, and expectations I’m placing on myself.”

Thank you for providing this new job. Now please give me what all I need to master it. I ask knowing that you hear and care. You have given provision; you won’t leave me alone to do it alone. Even as I pray this, I believe you are already answering my request. Thank you for wisdom!

I pray this in Jesus’ great name!
