In my previous post I talked about needing help to get through my work week. Some of the things I need help with at work are: not getting frustrated or loosing my patience so easily with those I work with & some I don't, but in the world of workers comp it's sometimes hard to avoid. I also tend to be too particular about clutter, I can't handle working in even a semi-unorganized environment, it makes me crazy. Everything must be in its place!! Not everyone I work with feels the same way, so I find myself in a crazy state most of the time. Even so, I still have lots of fun at work. However, my work ethic (at work) is not lacking & never has.
Now as for my work ethic at home, that isn't always so great. When it comes to house work, I am a major procrastinator. Anything else that comes up is always more important than dishes, laundry, etc. Which is why this particular prayer stood out so much.
This prayer to St. Joseph is a powerful one, and I plan on posting it somewhere I will see it everyday.

Lord Jesus, as I enter this work place, I bring Your presence with me. I speak Your peace, Your grace, and Your perfect order into the atmosphere of this office. I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished within these walls. Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts You have deposited in me.I do not take them lightly, but commit to using them responsibly and well. Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty; on which to draw as I do my job.Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor. Lord when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. Lord, when I am burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit. May the work that I do and the way I do it, bring hope, life, and courage to all that I come in contact with today. And Oh Lord, even in this day's most stressful moment, may I rest in You. In the Name of my Lord Jesus I Pray, Amen.
