How To overcome a difficult work environment
I know all too well what it means to loathe my job, bosses and coworkers. As a Christian, I am called to LOVE, not loathe. The energy involved in loathing is draining, numbing and self-destructive. Having learned from my first and second encounters, I knew consulting God was the right thing to do when havoc broke loose in the workplace a third time.
Here are 3 work-place prayers for you.
As I enter this workplace, I bring your presence with me. I speak your peace, your grace, and your perfect order into the atmosphere of this office. I acknowledge your lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and accomplished within these walls. Lord Jesus, I thank you for the gifts you have deposited in me. I do not take them lightly, but commit to using them responsibly and well. Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty on which to draw as I do my job. Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy, so that even my smallest task may bring you honor. Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. Lord, when I am burned out, infuse me with the light of your Holy Spirit.
May the work that I do and the way I do it bring hope, life, and courage to all that I come in contact with today. And, Oh Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moment, may I rest in you. In the mighty name that is above all names, in the Matchless Name of my Lord and Savior Jesus I pray. Amen.
