Prayer: Dear Lord, help me understand that the work I do each day is part of my witness to those around me and to the world. Whether I am a stay at home mom or one who goes to a 9-5 job each day, show me the influence that my work may have on those around me. Help me to do what I do with love, care and reverence… from the simplest task to those tasks on a larger scale. Clothe me with a sweet, serving Spirit. Amen.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you that you supply me with everything I need and that my life is filled with abundance so that I am able to extend a helping hand and a listening ear to those who need a friend. It is through you that I understand the meaning of friendship because your love for me is so filled with Grace. Give me opportunities to serve out of my abundance. Show me ways to lend a helping hand. Awaken me to opportunities to turn my ear toward someone who needs a friend. Thank you Lord. Amen.
Prayer: Lord, I realize that hard work is indispensable to success of any kind. Let me not pray that you would do the work for me, but that I will have the power, strength and the faith to accomplish that which you put before me. Help me make the best use of my time and resources Lord. I desire diligence and balance in all things. I pray for your wisdom to prevail upon me as you lead me in your power and strength. Amen.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you that while you are an all-knowing God, you allow me to learn for myself through trial and error, mistakes and hardships. Thank you for being such a patient and understanding teacher. Through your loving kindness I grow and learn about myself and the world around me. Show me through my experiences, what works for me, what lifts me up, what I can offer the world and what I should expect of others. Thank you that I know forgiveness and gentleness and I practice it on others and myself. Amen.
Prayer:Lord, may my words bring life and wisdom. Guard my heart and mind from those things that would cause insult, harm or injury to others. There is power in the tongue—in the words that we use; they can bring life or death. Lord, I want to bring life. I want to speak blessings upon those around me. Guard my heart. Help me recognize thoughts that are contrary to your goodness Lord. Amen.
