You Journey With Me

(a prayer for confidence and peace of mind when beginning a new job)

Dear Father,

Thank you that you journey with me. You have been in the process of my learning, searching and applying for this post. Come Lord, fill my mind with confidence as I begin this new chapter in my life. When I feel uncertain about decisions in this new work, may I lean on you and your wisdom to guide me. Where I feel I lack confidence and self-belief, may your eternal strength empower me. Lord, come fill me with passion and inspiration for the tasks that lie ahead of me, and may I bring your love and truth to others through the work that I do now.

In the name of Jesus,

A short prayer before starting work

Dear Lord,

Today, I offer you myself.
Come breathe your life
Into my working day.
Cause me to awake, to embrace the moment,
And to go in Your name.

Today, thank you that I can run without fear,
Serve with kindness,
And walk with You in this great adventure.

Prayer before Work

An inspiring prayer to pray before starting your working day:-

The Lord will protect and keep you:-

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1, (NIV)

Prayer for Strength at Work

You are my strength Jesus.
Help me to carry the responsibilities with grace.
Help me to lift each worry or burden to You.
Help me to defend truth, justice and righteousness in my practice.
You are my strength Jesus.
Thank you.
