As we grow up, we spend more and more time in a certain place…can you guess what it is? If you guessed work, then you guessed right. Because we spend so much time at our places of employment, whether we work from home or in an office, it is so important that we devote our work to the Lord. Our job is one of the ways that He provides for us and it is also a way to show you have a generous heart. God grows our character and our faith as we rely on him for strength to do our job. Here are 3 prayers to lift up to the Lord about your work.
- Thank the Lord that you can do all things through Him who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).
- Ask God to help you be content in life and not desire money and possessions and not to want what others have, and ask Him to give you the desire to work hard for what you earn. (1 Thessalonians 41:11-12)
- Pray that you will be faithful and wise with your work responsibilities, whether they are big or small. Pray that God would help you be honest, even when it is hard to be. (Luke 16:10-13)
Lastly, pray that God would use you where you work to help show people His love! God has provided you the job that you have for a purpose and for a reason!
