creative prayer journeys

prayer before work

Often work situations can become a tangle of agendas, decisions, stresses, deadlines and pressures. Prayer is a wonderful way of bringing peace into the heart of each working day. Prayer reminds us not to go in our own strength, but to source our strength in our heavenly Father.

Prayer can focus our hearts and minds on the bigger picture, remind us why we work and where the real priorities lay. And prayer can be a powerful way to build strong, visionary teams that work together to make something remarkable happen. Prayer brings unity, grace and integrity into our working day.

Short prayer before starting work

O Lord,

Meet me today in the ordinary rhythms of my working life. I invite you to come and breathe your life into mine.

Come, may your love fill this heart and may it overflow into the lives of others. May your hope well up inside me and bring new vision for my life. And may your truth light up my reactions and decisions.

May this ordinary day become extraordinary because of you.


Company prayer before work

Dear God,

We commit this working day to you.
May we engage with each task with faith and perseverance.

May we speak and serve with integrity and purpose.
Lord, we invite you to work within us today.

Prayer before work

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Today I will remember to put you before all things.
Lord before tiredness - you are energy
Lord before stress - you are peace
Lord before need - you are the gift
Lord before decisions - you are truth
Lord before toil - you are rest.
Today I will remember to put your energy, your peace, your gift, your truth and your rest before my working day.
That I may go not in my own strength but be led by your Spirit.

Dwell at Christmas

Dwell album cover from Prayerscapes

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for.

An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More
