The workplace is filled with many challenges and dealing with a difficult boss is one of them. However, as believers in Jesus Christ, you and I have the blessed assurance that no matter what God is with us. His word states in Hebrews chapter 13 verse 5 states that he will never leave us or forsake us.
Along the same lines, Psalm chapter 46 verse 1 states that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, God is capable of showing himself strong in the midst of trouble and dealing with a difficult boss is no exception.
Hereunder is a short but powerful prayer for dealing with a difficult boss:
Dear Heavenly Father,
You are the Most High God. You are Jehovah, my treasure. There is no other God that can be compared with you. You are Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. You are creator. I can depend on you. You are my burden bearer. You are more than able to carry me through any obstacles that you may place in my path.
I just thank you because you are God. There is none like you and there is no other God as you. I am so thankful that I can depend on you. I can rely on you. I do not have to fear because you are my source and my provider. You are in total control of the entire universe. What a great and marvelous God and Father that you are.
I can come before you with a blessed and guaranteed assurance that you can hear me when I call. I can call on you at anytime. Your word states that you do not slumber nor sleep. What a privilege and honour to know that I can carry everything that I want and desire to you my Father in prayer.
Lord, I am so grateful for the many blessings that you have bestowed upon me. How can I say thanks? Let the words of my lips be a sweet offering before you today. I feel very blessed Lord seeing the way that you have provided for me in every area of my life. Father, you know best. And whatever you think is best for me, I receive it gladly.
I thank you specifically today for a job. Lord, having a job is a huge blessing. You have met my needs through this job. Father, I do not see the hands of my employer to meet my need but God you are my employer and my source. I have been able to bless many individuals and support several causes from the resources you have provided through this job.
I believe dear Jesus that wherever I am working, that is where you want me to be planted. That is the place where you have chosen to bless me and meet my needs just as you provided for the prophet Elijah by the brook of Cherith.
Father, you have seen my challenges with my boss. There are so many tasks that are assigned to me that I think is unfair. I do not think that I deserve the treatment that I am experiencing but you Oh Father are in control. You know the future. Your plan for me is perfect and all your promises and ye and in you, Amen! I can trust you and rely upon you.
So father, if it is your will for me to ensure this season so that my character is developed then give me the grace and strength to run this race with excellence. On the other hand, if this is not warranted and it is an attack, then I am asking you my father for freedom and deliverance.
I love my job and I am ever so grateful for how you have provided and bless me. I enjoy interacting with clients, suppliers and my co-workers. Help me to dig deeper than I have ever done in my life. I am tired and exhausted. Please renew my strength as I wait on you for help.
Psalm chapter 28 verse 7 and 8 states the Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. The Lord is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed. In addition, Psalm chapter 18 verse 2 states the Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Thank you for the confidence that I have in your word. You will provide me with strength to navigate this difficult period. Show me Lord, if there is anything in me that needs to be modified. I want to live a life that is pleasing in your sight. A life that honours and magnifies your name.
Your word states in Proverbs chapter 16 verse 7 states that when a man’s way please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Your word is truth. Therefore, Father, guide my steps. Reveal to me any wicked ways that I have that does not please so. I want to repent dear father. I never want to live in disobedience
Father, thank you today for hearing my prayers and I appreciate the strength that you have given me to overcome and conquer this season.
This I ask In Jesus Name, Amen.
