Prayer About Work

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a grateful heart, giving You thanks for this new day and the opportunity to work and serve You. I ask that You would fill me with Your Holy Spirit, that I may be led and directed in all that I do. I pray that You would give me the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to fulfill the tasks and responsibilities You have given me.

I pray for Your protection over me and my colleagues as we go about our daily work. Please give us the strength and energy to do our best, and the patience and kindness to work well together. I pray that You would bless our efforts, and that our work would be a reflection of Your love and grace to those around us.

I trust in Your provision for all of my needs, and I give You all the honor and praise for any success I may have. I pray that You would keep my heart and mind focused on You, and that I would always be mindful of Your presence in my life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
