Prayer before work starts

Work seems to dominate the time of our daily lives. Why not dedicate this time to God with a short prayer before work starts? Set yourself reminders before work begins to pray for God’s assistance and to thank him for the gifts you have been given and the call to do the work you were meant to do.

A Prayer Before Work

Holy God,
You made me in your image and likeness, to be a steward of your creation.
I embrace the gifts you have given me and vow to use them today to serve you and others through the work that I do.
Bless my work, Lord.
Amen.

Short Prayer Before Work

Lord,
Your great work is apparent throughout the world.
I offer you my time time in service to you.
Bless the work I do and make it a vehicle for your will.
Amen.

Prayer Before Work You Dislike

Lord,
Though I dislike this work,
I recognize the gift of your cross and will carry my own cross today.
Sanctify me through the hard work that I endure.
Protect me from the temptation of evil.
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen.

Catholic Prayer Before Work: Actiones Nostras

Father,
may everything we do
begin with your inspiration
and continue with your saving help.
Let our work always find its origin in you
and through you reach completion.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

One of the best things to practice on the job is prayer. As you’ve probably heard:

  • “Prayer changes things.”
  • “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.” ~Alfred Lord Tennyson
  • “Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.” ~D. L. Moody

Corrie Ten Boom asked “Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”  She also added … “Don’t just pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it.”

One such prayer appointment is pausing for prayer before we begin working. Your may view/download the powerpoint presentation – BeforeYouStartWorkToday. The prayer goes like this:

prayer before work startsWhen it comes to praying or communicating with God, you do not have to say a pre-written prayer like the one above; just talk to God and tell him what is on your heart. Thank him, and ask him to give you wisdom; ask him to help and strengthen you.

Also, if it is inconvenient for you to pray at your desk, pray elsewhere . . . by the window, in the lavatory, or while going down the stairs.

As you make a habit of saying a prayer before starting work, bear in mind that  “Prayer may not change things for you, but it will for sure, change you for things”. ~Samuel M. Shoemaker

My Heavenly Father, as I enter this work place,
I bring Your presence with me.
I speak 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.

Lord, I thank You for the gifts You have blessed me with.
I commit to using them responsibly in Your honour.
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 weary, energize 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.

And oh Lord, when I leave this place, give me travelling mercy.
Bless my family and home to be in order as I left it.
Lord, I thank you for everything You’ve done,
everything You’re doing, and everything You’re going to do.
In the Name of Jesus I pray, with much love and thanksgiving.

Amen.
