We give thanks for the work that you do every day in the name of Jesus. Thank you for standing in the gap in your marketplace. We pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you. (Ephesians 1:18)
If you find these prayers helpful, feel free to share them with other Jesus followers. If the Lord opens a door for you to share it with a coworker, go ahead!
工作者的禱告：接受基督的肯定 | Prayer of Assurance for People @ Work
We all need to be assured of the work we do. The only problem is that commendations from supervisors, appreciation from clients, and even our own confidence, too often depend on profit, performance, efficiency and effectiveness. If you have ever felt lost, worried, depressed or stressed out at work, now is the time to pause. Be still and acknowledge the Lord of the marketplace. Use the following prayer guide with your prayer partner. While reading the prayer, insert the name of the other person. Use it also for personal prayer and meditation.
You are a child of God (John 1:12). Our Comforter the Holy Spirit is with you (John 14:16).
Jesus knows your struggles today (Hebrews 4:15-16), so go ahead and tell him what you’re facing.
Jesus Christ rules over all authority and power and institutions, including your marketplace (Ephesians 1:17-22).
Your calling today includes your work. Pray that our Father will give you compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience as you work. Pray that you will do everything from your heart, as done for the Lord (Colossians 3:12, 23).
May our Father have mercy on you, bless you and let your work bear fruit. May you speak and act with the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (Psalm 67).
Lord, thank you for trusting me
with today’s tasks.
Help me acknowledge you
at every turn, through scripture,
silent prayer, open prayer,
acts of kindness
or words of comfort.
Help me deliver my best in all I do,
and help me receive everyone
with an open mind.
Holy Spirit, convict me when I sin,
warn me when I’m about to sin, and
alert me to sin’s destructive power.
Hold me close when I’m afraid.
When the day is done,
grant me trust in Your forgiveness.
Assure me that You will multiply
my good deeds
and make up for my shortcomings.
Help me trust in your protection that I may lie down and rest.
As the dawn breaks, grant me
a grateful heart as I wake up
and dedicate the new day to You.
The arms of God be around
The touch of the Holy Spirit
upon my head,
The sign of Christ’s cross
upon my forehead,
The sound of the Holy Spirit in my ears,
The fragrance of the Holy Spirit
in my nostrils,
The vision of heaven’s company
in my eyes,
The conversation of heaven’s company on my lips,
The work of God’s church in my hands,
The service of God’s people
and the neighbor
in my feet,
A home for God in my heart,
And to God, the Father of all,
my entire being.
(St Fursey’s Prayer)
As I begin this new day,
I put on the belt of truth —
so that all that I think and do will be on the basis of the truth of scripture;
I put on the breastplate of righteousness — it is the righteousness of Christ and not the righteousness of my own works;
I wear the shoes of the gospel of peace — the cross of Christ has reconciled me to God, and I am ready to proclaim the good news that all may enjoy peace with God through Jesus Christ;
I take up the shield of faith —
the faithfulness of Christ is my shield;
I put on the helmet of salvation —
I have been saved from sin, and God is bringing me to perfection in Christ;
I take up the sword of the Spirit —
the Bible is in my hands and my heart, and I trust in the Holy Spirit
and the power of the Word.
In the Name of Jesus, I ask to stand in the gap and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with prayers and petitions.
