Lenten Prayer Series, Day 1 (2)
I thank you for all the ways you’ve blessed me, specifically with this job that pays my bills and puts food on my table. Thank you that ALL work has significance because work is good. Help me bring you glory today, through my actions, my words, through the good work I do to bring order to my little corner of the world. Help me view my work as a blessing and not a curse. Give me grace and strength for the hardest aspects of my job. Help me to do all that You call me to do in this season and not one thing more. What do You want me to do? What do You want me to stop? What boundaries should I set on my work?
I need to regain joy in my tasks. Help me to worship You as I work, doing it all for the King of Kings.
Thank you for the blessing of my business or ministry. I am grateful that you planted a seed in my heart and gave me the resources and opportunity to use my gifts to serve others. Lord, please show me what you want me to do next with the gift of my work. Teach me to make wise decisions and keep my eyes focused on the path you set before me.
Help me avoid temptations and distractions that lead me astray. Lord, give me the courage and faith to follow your call – even when it means taking risks. Protect me from the doubts and fears that prevent me from fulfilling your purpose for me. Help me to trust in you and feel your never-ending love and presence.
