Workplace Prayers

A friend shared that he once faced a difficult situation that he and a client were trying to resolve. Since the client was a deacon in his church, he recommended that they pray. He was shocked when his client informed him that it was Monday, not Sunday, and prayer was inappropriate at work.

Many business leaders live such compartmentalized lives that they may faithfully pray for their family and personal issues, yet they don’t take their work issues to the Lord.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Note that Paul said we are to pray about “everything.” If you want God’s blessing on your work, you need to ask Him.
