A Prayer For The Work Day

I've been back to work full time for about 4 weeks now, and after the week I just had I felt the need to find a specific prayer to help me through the week to come. Of all the prayers I found I liked this one best.

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.
