The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; (Psalm 34:19 NIV) Everyone is susceptible to complications and problems at work. Even for the child of God, work life includes unforeseen disruptions and setbacks. Meetings begin or end late, there are technology issues, deadlines and service issues. We have protocols for addressing some problems, but not all of them. In some cases we have to rely upon good judgement and logic. When we encounter hindrances that keep up from completing our work duties, our frustration may manifest in anger and bad decisions.   In every situation Christians have extra help from the Lord. So in addition to employing the skills are resources provided to us in the workplace, we can pray and ask for discernment and the steps to eliminate the frustrating situations that come up. God is concerned about our day to day lives, not just the major emergencies such as our health or finances. It is reassuring to know that we have an advocate in Jesus even for the little things.  We know that he sits at the right hand of the Father and pleads our case. Prayer-Father I thank you for you grace and mercy at work. I am dealing with a frustrating problem right now and I need your help and guidance to resolve it. Lord, please help me to glorify you in my attitude and behavior as I work through this situation. Amen

You may be responsible for directing other people, mass production, sales or service. In most jobs and at most companies there is a traditional way of performing your job. When you were a new employee, someone trained you and demonstrated the best practices for your position. At some point you may wonder if there is a better way to do the work. Maybe there is. Maybe not. Either way, your attitude and intention while working can be led by the Holy Spirit, thereby infusing your work day with grace and favor. This is the place to start. Ask God to help you think about your workplace, your behavior, coworkers and everyone you come into contact as an opportunity to develop your Christian walk. He will also help you to improve your performance in specific duties. If you need to be more organized for example, ask God to show you how you can be better in this area. He is in the workplace with us all day long and he is willing to help. Prayer-Father thank you for your favor, grace and your holy spirit that guides me at work each day. Lord I ask that you help me [...]
