Workplace Prayers: Week of November 11-2019

Lord God Almighty, the One who works on our behalf,
Make your face shine on us as we enter into the day’s work.
Satisfy us with your loving-kindness that we might praise you as we attend to our daily tasks.

  • Help us not to forget that you are with us in our cubicles, office, showroom floors, and tech bays.
  • Help us to see how you are working on our behalf as we look through paperwork, warranties, or repair orders.
  • Help us to see how are work is dignified, needed, and that it makes a difference in people’s lives.

We confess that we can become arrogant and stubborn at times.
We use our work knowledge as power over others.
We want to see things done our way because we’ve exaggerated how much we know.

Forgive us when we misuse our power and authority over others,
when we value people in higher positions over less sought after positions.

We confess that we seek to be in control because we think we know what’s best. We use others to our own gain and we ask that you forgive us.

May we turn our face towards you and be a people of hospitality and joy towards our fellow coworkers and customers.
Be gracious and compassionate over us.

Restore us and make your face shine upon our work activities that we may be saved.

Amen
