Saying a prayer before work is a great way to get your day started. Whether you are in need of God’s presence after a morning meeting or during lunchtime, or want to say a prayer for your team, here are some great daily prayers for the workplace.
Prayers for Peace at Work
Light at My Workplace Prayer
O Jehovah, my God, as I set out for work today, help me to be light at the office and a source of inspiration to our clients and my colleagues. Put the right words in my mouth that will build others up and give them hope. Lord, help me to be a source of blessing to those people that are going through difficult times. Fill my workplace with peace and remove anything that may bring strife. Be our shield and guide in everything that we do. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
Prayer for Peace over Job Security
Awesome God, I praise you, for you are my strength and fortress, even when I am weighed down with fear. I come to you with my concerns regarding job security. Keep me from harboring unbelief as I rest securely in your power to provide. I leave every aspect of my job situation in your loving hands and rest peacefully in you. Guide me and calm my spirit. Increase my faith to believe that I will not only keep my job, but I will advance and be promoted. Amen.
Prayer to Peacefully Listen
God of truth, I confess that I often bring anxiety and strife down upon myself because I fail to listen well to you and to others. Your word tells me to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. May I remember to take that important time with you before I head to work, just listening to you through your word and your Spirit and receiving your peace. Help me quietly listen to others at work, so I can understand and be helpful to my colleagues. Amen.
Prayer for Steady Emotions
God, my eternal King, I need you to reign over my emotions and bring peace, especially when I am at work. I find myself getting easily flustered in stressful situations when I need to be cool and professional. Sometimes I am flooded with feelings of negativity and hopelessness about problems at work. May your Holy Spirit give me power over my emotions and enable me to be steady and peaceful in my mind and soul. Thank you for being my firm foundation and calming the stormy seas of my mind. Amen.
Prayer to Peacefully Adapt to Change
Father, my faithful Creator, help me to continually remember You are in control. When I’m anxious about all the changes at work, remind me that I am in the palm of your hand. May your grace and gentleness flow over me, teaching me to be flexible and to peacefully adapt to change. When I must learn new skills or new procedures, remind me not to be anxious. When deadlines change or a project needs to be rearranged, help me not get upset, but instead adjust my work cheerfully. Help me embrace the peace that comes from an optimistic spirit. Amen.
Peace and Productivity Workplace Prayer
God of hope, my heart is racing because I’m finding it difficult to keep up with the pace at work. Sometimes I find it hard to breathe. I praise you for your light that shines on the godly and because you give peace in the storm. I need your assistance in being more productive at my job. Help me work faster. I ask that your Holy Spirit would empower me to not get distracted with less important things and stay focused on what I really need to accomplish. Thank you for bringing your peace to me in my workplace and helping me achieve my goals. Amen.
Prayer When I Am Overwhelmed
God of victory, help me overcome my racing and wandering mind. Center my thoughts, so I can focus on the work I need to do. Help me have a good day at work and protect me from drifting into anxiety about all the things I need to do. When I am overwhelmed, I am grateful that I can run to you. I stand fast in your power to defend me against anything that would rattle me. I thank you that you haven’t given me a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. Amen.
Prayer for Calm and Focus
God of peace, I often feel stressed under the intense pressure at my job. I ask that You empower me to be calm and focused and serene. When the pace is extremely busy, or when my boss is demanding, or I’m rushing to meet a deadline, just quiet my emotions. Help me be tranquil and unruffled, so I can concentrate and be efficient. I thank you that you are the God who calms the sea and stills the storm. I thank you that you are my Lord of peace. Amen.
Prayer for Dealing with Annoying Situations
God of all grace, I need patience and serenity to deal with irritating situations that often come up at my workplace. Give me grace under pressure when the computer or the copier or other equipment is down. Help me to be pleasant when the phone keeps ringing while I’m trying to concentrate on a project. I pray for peace in my workplace, Lord. I thank you, Lord, that you give grace generously. Help me graciously deal with these troublesome issues and be a bright and shining testimony for you. Amen.
Prayers for Teamwork
Jesus, my Savior, it is another beautiful day that you’ve enabled us to come to our place of work. I thank you for my colleagues and me. Jesus, help us to work as a team. Remove comparison and rivalry mentality from our hearts and help us to focus on the greater good, which is the growth of this company. Let this place be fun and help us to live in harmony with each other. In your all-powerful name, I pray, Amen.
