Heavenly Father, I come before you this morning, first thanking you for allowing me to wake up.
I come before you this morning, first thanking you for allowing me to wake up.
Thank you for allowing me to open my eyes, move my limbs, and for other parts of my body that are healthy and functioning.
Thank you for allowing my friends, family, and other loved ones to arise as well. For those whose last day on earth was yesterday, I pray that you comfort their family members and friends with the sweet peace of your presence as they grieve the loss of their loved one(s).
As I arise to begin this work-day, I invite you, God, to fill my spirit with your presence. May your divine wisdom guide me through the day. Take away any forms of fear and anxiety because those feelings are not of you, God. I ask that you give me power, wisdom, and grace throughout this day in your name, Jesus.
Give my mind the ability to function efficiently while doing my work tasks.
Give me the grace to deal with difficult workers and clients. Rather than be annoyed at them, help me pray for those who, in the past, have caused me distress on my job. Help me be a vessel to carry your love and grace so that they see you in me.
Help me be a light to shine your glory through my work place.
Help me speak words that are clear, helpful, and purposeful. When I am unsure about what do to, may you guide me to make the right decisions. When I feel scared or tired, may you bless me with divine courage and energy. May your Holy Spirit rebuke every evil intent that is set to approach me today.
Bless our children as they stay home on holidays. Cover them and protect them from harm.
Bless their nannies or guidance as they are protectors of our children when we cannot be there.
Show me your purpose for me today, God, and I will do it. I will obey your instruction—even if it is scary or difficult. I want to please you and carry forth your will. Give me the courage to do so. Everything I do is for you, God. I am your vessel. Guide me and help me make this day for your glory! In doing so, may you boldly break chains of mediocrity, fear, laziness, helplessness in my life today.
IN JESUS MIGHT NAME WE PRAY.
