Even if you’re in a job you love, work-related stress can be a factor in your everyday life. With financial concerns piled on top of that, you might find your motivation to get out of bed in the morning at an all-time low. Pray this short prayer for work-related stress with me today, and gain some perspective on the work you do.
For whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.Hebrews 4:10
Dear God, I am thankful to be employed, but right now, my job is frustrating and stressful. And so I ask you for peace. You know my situation, and I know that you will always provide for me. I need your wisdom about my job.
Help me to see what I do from your perspective. I know you want me to be treated with dignity and fairness, but things don’t feel very fair right now. I feel overwhelmed, anxious, and exhausted. Help me to see the good in what I’m doing. Show me the small things I’m doing that make a difference to someone else. Help me see my workplace as my commission from you.
Show me the best way to manage my stress so that my health does not suffer. Help me to draw strong boundaries and stick to them. And most of all, help me to trust you every minute of every day. You are my hiding place. Help me not to fear the future because I know you are already there.
Help me find my rest in you as I go to work each day. It’s in Jesus’ name that I pray. Amen.
