Overcoming A Hostile Work Environment 2
How To overcome a difficult work environment
Here is a work prayer for you. We recommend that you have a pen and paper or take notes on a secure home computer to write down some of the thoughts and ideas that God sends your way as you pray about your stressful work strategy. Once you’ve taken notes on your conversation with God you will have a record that will help you see progress. You can also use it to make shorter more general prayers such as this, “God, I am entrusting all of the details on my prayer plan to you today.”
"When I am confused, guide me. When I am burned out, infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit. May the work that I do and the way I do it bring faith, joy and a smile to all that I come in contact with today. Lord, as I enter this workplace, I bring your presence with me. I ask that you bring your peace, your grace, your mercy and your perfect order into this office. I acknowledge your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls. I commit to using my gifts responsibly in your honor. Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. When I am burned out, infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen"
God gives us strength and power to face workplace challenges. Philippians 4:6 tells us “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” One of the many reasons why prayer is so important in terms of dealing with these challenges is because there is power in prayer.
