24 Powerful Prayers for Protection at Work

Going to work can take a lot of courage, especially when your job is high-risk, or sickness is spreading like wildfire. Here are 24 powerful prayers for protection at work.

Protection for Those on the Frontlines during Public Health Crisis Prayer
Heavenly Father, as sickness spreads across our country, I ask for safety and protection for my coworkers and myself. We are on the frontlines and handling sick people on a daily basis. Father, as many precautions as we take, the chances of us getting sick too are high, and that is a scary reality to be in. I pray for Your hedge of protection that is safer than any earthly precaution we could take. Calm our fears. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Trust in the Face of Public Health Crisis Prayer
Lord Jesus, I am fearful of this public health crisis. I am doing my best to stay healthy, but as worldwide fear grows, so does mine. I am still expected to go into work as normal, even though so many others are being ordered to work from home. What if I get sick? What if my co-workers pass something along to me? God, keep me safe. I pray for the strength to trust in You in the face of fear and the discernment to know what fear is real and what is overstated. Thank You, God. Amen.

Continue Essential Job Without Fear Prayer During Public Health Crisis
Compassionate Father, my job is essential to the well-being of others, and I am proud to be able to give to my friends, family, community, and country. I know that what I am doing needs to be done and can help many people. Still, that does not take away the risk and dangers that come with what I do. That does not take away the fear I feel and the worry I have about endangering myself. Father, protect me from the sickness and danger around me. Keep me safe and able to keep doing my job without fear of infection. Thank You, God. Amen.

Safety from Illness at Work Prayer
Father God, my immune system is not the most reliable or strong. Because of that, it is very easy for me to get sick from someone else. God, while at work, please keep me safe and healthy. I am in close quarters with my co-workers, and I ask for Your protection against germs and illness. Lord, my body is weak, but You are strong. Please keep me healthy. Amen.

Job Security Prayer
Christ Jesus, I am fearful of my work environment. I don’t feel safe around certain co-workers and do not feel confident in the security of my job position. Others are trying to sabotage my authority and success, God, and I am not sure how to handle this. I pray for Your assistance and protection. Please help me not fall into fear or act out of these insecurities. Even in my worries, God, help me continue to treat all with love and respect as I trust that You will keep my position safe. Amen.

Prayer for Military Members Who Serve
Most Holy God, I ask that You keep me safe as I leave to serve my country and fight for the freedom of my people. I am nervous because there will be danger lurking all around me, but I know that You will be with me in danger. In the fear, Lord, help me throw off all the distractions and keep my eyes fixed on You. I pray, God, that You keep me safe enough that I can go home when this all over. Return me to my family, God. Amen.

Protection from Danger in Job Prayer
Lord Jesus, I have never been fearful of my job until now. I love what I do and being able to risk my life for others. Usually, this risk excites me and makes me feel like I am living in Your call to lay down my life for a neighbor. However, I have a family and people depending on me, and now I am scared for them and how something happening to me would affect them. Be with me, God. I ask for Your safety, Your protection, and Your strength. Help me not be afraid but feel secure in You. Amen.

Alongside Me Prayer
Loving God, I ask that You be my protection at work today. Be present alongside me in the face of the danger and destruction I see every day. With You, God, I know there is nothing to fear. With You is the safest place to be, Lord, and I ask for Your presence. Help me rest in my knowledge of You instead of focusing on the feeling of fear in me. Thank You, Jesus, for Your goodness and past protection. Keep me safe today too. Amen.

Mighty to Save Prayer
Most Merciful God, You are with me, and You are mighty to save. Be my safety. I am not worried because I know You take great delight in me and rejoice over me with singing. You are the only protection I need. Jesus, be that protection for my co-workers and me today. Alone, we are vulnerable and weak, but with You, nothing can touch us. With You, we are safe. I love You, Jesus. Thank You for loving me. Amen.

Total Faith Prayer
Heavenly Father, the enemy is tempting me with fear by making my workplace somewhere I do not feel safe. Help me overcome this temptation with total faith and trust in You.

In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Mighty Savior Prayer for Physically Dangerous Jobs
Mighty Savior, be with me as I face the daily dangers of my job. I never know what is going to happen or what I will have to deal with, but You do, God. I pray for Your protection as I enter into the unknown. Allow me to trust in You and give me the confidence I need to do my job to the best of my ability. Do not let me act in fear, but in the knowledge that You are the one who holds the future. Amen.

Confidence in Your Protection Prayer
Jesus, I come in prayer to ask You for safety for my team and me at work today. While each of my workers risks their lives today, please keep them safe.

Do Not Be Afraid Prayer
Abba, Father, the Bible tells us not to be afraid 365 times—one for every day of the year. With that, God, I will not be afraid today. Instead, I will trust in You and Your goodness. Be my safety and protection for the day as I face the unknowns of work. With difficult tasks and dangerous circumstances, You are safe, good, and mighty. Let me rest in the knowledge that You are God. Amen.

Protect Me as I Strive for a Promotion Prayer
Everlasting God, I ask that You give me the confidence and strength to stick up for myself and what I believe in at work. I want to move up in my organization, but I do not want to compromise myself in order to do that. Jesus, protect me from the ungodly pressures that I could face in the workplace. Help me always remember You and Your way. Amen.

Way of the Lord to Success Prayer
Lord, I am guilty of desiring success. I can be selfish and greedy, and sometimes this is my motivation at work. God, protect me from evil things, thoughts, and desires. I worry that while at work, I am vulnerable to temptation. Keep me safe and give me the wisdom to know the way of the Lord and the strength to follow You always. Amen.

Protection from Violence Prayer
Jesus, every day that violence increases in our world I get a little more fearful for my safety at my job. What if today is the day something goes wrong? What if today I make a fatal mistake? I want to believe that I am worrying too much, but violence has become such a reality for so many that I don’t think I am overreacting. God, be my guide and my protection. Help me find my safety in You. Whatever happens, help me to know that the future is in Your hands. Amen.

Protection for Childcare Jobs Prayer
Gracious Father, I worry that I will make a mistake. My career involves people depending on me to care for and be responsible for their children. Daily, I am filled with anxiety and fear that I will let those people down in a terrible way. I am always thinking about worst-case scenarios and this fills me with so much fear. God, protect the children in my care and me. Calm my anxieties. Please keep a watchful eye on us and keep us safe. I love You, God. Amen.

Your Watchful Eye Against Sabotage Prayer
Lord Jesus, when I am at work, I always feel like there is someone there who is out to get me. I’m not sure if this is a valid fear or not, but I bring it to You in prayer.

Assurance Against Unexpected Mass Violence in the Workplace Prayer
Most Holy God, I never thought that my workplace would be a place that I was afraid to go to. But lately, with everything happening in this country and all the shootings on the news, I am scared.

God, I ask for Your protection for my colleagues and me from something that sounds so crazy but has been happening so regularly. Please do not let it happen to us. Amen.

Guard Me on the Frontlines Prayer
Precious Holy Spirit, it is hard sometimes to be on the front lines. I love what I do, but I am always fearful of what I am risking when I go to work and whether or not it is worth it. Please, God, I ask that You protect me and keep me safe from the dangers that could occur. You are faithful, God. Please watch over me and guard me. Amen.

Focus and Alertness Prayer
Jesus, I come to You and ask that You keep Your eye on me while I am at my job. I work long hours, and I often get tired, and if I get too tired, I put myself and others in danger. Lord, please keep me awake, focused, and alert. Help me be aware of my surroundings and protect me from injuring myself and protect anyone else who could be injured by my mistakes. Thank You, God. Amen.

You Are Mightier Prayer
