EMPLOYMENT PRAYER

 

Father, in the name of Jesus, my desire is to owe no man anything but to love him.  Therefore, I am strong and let not my hands be weak or slack, for my work shall be rewarded.  My wages are not counted as a favor or gift, but as something owed to me.  I make it my ambition and definite endeavor to live quietly and peacefully, minding my own affairs and to work with my hands.  I am honorable and command the respect of the outside world, being self-supporting, and having need of nothing, for You, Father, supply to the fullest, my every need, want and desire.

 

I give myself to good deeds, to honest labor and honorable employment so that I am able to meet necessary demands whenever the occasion may require.  Father, you have set before me a door wide open with all kinds of opportunities and possibilities which no one is able to shut.  I do not fear and am not dismayed, for You, Father, strengthen me.  In all of my employment endeavors, Your peace mounts guard over my heart, mind and soul.

 

             2 Thessalonians 3:6-14
