Prayer Before Starting Work

 Submitted by a Member of Construction Connection

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. (Jobsite etc.)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 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 Lord, when I leave this place, give me traveling 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 are going to do.  In the name of Jesus pray with much love and Thanksgiving.
