A Prayer for Work

This week’s prayer is a prayer about being a diligent worker. The Coach is in law school, and these verses are frequently posted in areas around our house. While they are particularly helpful for him as a student, they apply to us all. Everything that we do should be done “enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men” (Colossians 3:23). Whether we are students, working moms, or stay-at-home moms, everything we do is for the glory of the Lord (1 Corinthians 10:31).


I will commit my work to you Lord and know that you will help me to achieve my plans (Proverbs 16:10). Help me to work cheerfully and enthusiastically (Romans 12:12). Help guard my heart so that I will labor without complaining (Philippians 2:14).

Everything I do is for Your glory (1 Corinthians 10:31). Help me to remember that I am working only to serve You and not others (Colossians 3:23-24). Through hard work, You will bless me (Proverbs 12:24) and You will allow me to bless those in need (Ephesians 4:28). Help me to not be lazy (Romans 12:11).
