“I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.” (Psalm 17:6, NIV)


Loving Father,

As I begin my day, I want to thank You for the skills and abilities that You have given me in preparation for my job. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I pray that you will teach me to speak with Your voice, to treat my co-workers, customers, and suppliers with Your grace, and to be Your witness no matter what I say or do.

I ask Your blessing over all I say, think, decide, and do today. Bless my creativity, my ideas, and my energy so that everything I do may bring honor and glory to You.

Father, when I am confused, guide me; when I’m tired, energize me; and when I’m totally burned out, strengthen me with the light of Your Holy Spirit.

May everything I do today bring hope, life, and encouragement to those around me.

And Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moments, help me find rest in You! In the precious name of Jesus, I pray.

  9. Pastor Roland Ledoux Says:

    I am a strong advocate of intercessory prayer and it is literally a JOY to see prayer from the heart and spirit being prayed online for others to receive or some to confirm in their spirits. What greater place than a medium such as this where more than “two or three are gathered together in Jesus Name?!” Sometimes we need to think out of the box spiritually for a greater sense of God’s Spirit at work!
    God bless you so much as you continue in your endeavors for the Spirit and the Body of Christ!

        So much frustration, back stabbing and cut throats at my work place it makes me sad and breaks my heart that all they value is $$…ur only as good as ur last demo or sale!! Ystrday they cut my hours in half bc of my performance, even tho last week I had made a large amount in sales. I felt totally dispensable as the world makes us believe but God put me in check but I constantly need his reassurance
