Prayer for Work

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come to You today to ask for Your guidance and protection as we go about our daily work. We ask that You would bless the efforts of our hands and the plans of our hearts, and help us to use our talents and abilities for Your glory.

We pray for wisdom in our decision-making and for discernment in our interactions with others. Help us to be kind and respectful to all those we encounter, and to be a light for You in the workplace. We pray that You would use us to make a positive impact in our workplaces and in the lives of those around us.

We trust in Your provision and ask that You would meet all of our needs according to Your riches in glory. We also pray for unity among our colleagues and for peace in the work environment.

We give You all the honor, glory, and praise, through Your Son Jesus Christ, Amen.
