My Heavenly father, as I enter this workplace I bring your presence with me. I speak your peace, your grace, your mercy, and your perfect order in this office. I acknowledge your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls.
Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with. I commit to using them responsibly in your honor. Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job. Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring you glory.
Lord, 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.
Of the 132 instances recorded in the Gospels, 122 of Jesus’ interactions with people took place in homes or places of business, not in places of worship. He prayed and healed and ministered in the midst of daily life – in the streets of the marketplaces and in the family kitchens. He may have said, “Come to Me,” but in truth, He went to people and touched them where they lived and worked.
As you pray for those whose lives you touch, determine how you might pray for workplaces in your area as well. Ask God to make you sensitive to the needs and hurts of people you encounter at the dry cleaner, the pharmacy, or your favorite restaurant. Know that He wants the lazy checker at the grocery store to experience the depths of His love. Practice saying, “Can I pray for you?” when you encounter people in various workplaces and businesses.
You’ll be surprised at how open people are to receiving prayer in the workplace. Today the workplace is experiencing a wave of spiritual receptivity as more and more people carry their spiritual hunger to work, and as companies discover the value of investing in the spiritual health of their employees. Large corporations are hiring chaplains to minister to their workers, and Bible studies and prayer groups are cropping up in offices and break rooms all over the country. If enough lighthouses extended their prayer reach, beyond the neighborhoods to the businesses in their communities, we might just see a revival sweep through the marketplace of America!
Your daily contact with people in the workplace gives you the opportunity to pray for them and care for them.

Bless the Workplace
Bless my workplace. I declare success in business today. Let my business be of great service to others, flourishing through decency, honesty and respect for my colleagues and customers.
May I be strong and courageous, making wise decisions guided by the Holy Spirit, and not terrified or discouraged.
Grant me wisdom and calm so that I can rightly access every situation and bring peace and productivity to the work environment.
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,and then thou shalt have good success.
Success is on its way
I declare and decree that success is coming my way. As I patiently await You, Oh Heavenly King, I will praise You in the hallways.
I chose to step out boldly today in faith knowing that the future holds the fruits of my success and all the hard work and dedication will pay off.
I will look up to the heavens knowing that I made it when Your blessings start pouring down. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!
