Prayer Plan // June 2022

All too often we see a great divide between our work (paid/unpaid, formal/informal, seen/unseen) and our faith. This leads to our work not working, and this has been happening to all of humanity since the fall. However, God created us to work. He did not intend there to be a divide between the “sacred” and the “secular” between Sunday and Monday. Work works when we connect our faith and work. God’s purpose in connecting our faith and work is so that, through our work, we can worship Him, serve others, and be salt and light. So let’s work on connecting our faith and work.
Here is a prayer from that could serve as a great starting point each day in connecting our faith and our work:
Lord, as I begin my work, I bring Your presence with me. I speak Your peace, Your grace, and Your perfect order into the atmosphere of my work.

I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and accomplished this day.

Lord, I thank you for the gifts and skills You have deposited in me. I do not take them lightly, but commit to using them responsibly and well.

Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty on which to draw as I do my job today. Bless my creativity, my ideas, and my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.

Lord, when I’m confused, guide me — when I am weary, energize me.

Lord, when I’m burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit.

May the work I do and the way I do it bring hope, life, and courage to all that I come in contact with today.

And oh Lord, even in this day’s most stressful moments, may I rest in You.

In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Pro Tip

One of the best ways we can connect our faith and work is by setting time aside to pray throughout the work day. Start your work day with prayer, take a minute in between each task, meeting, client, or patient to refocus on God so you can properly view your work.
