Workplace stress is not an uncommon part of an office environment. Therefore you and I require the strength of God to help us navigate our day to day challenges with discretion, wisdom and kindness.
The workplace environment is filled from all different types of people from various walks of life and cultural background. Therefore it is easy for workplace stress to emerge.
Stressful work challenges will present themselves ever so often. It is an inevitable part of life. Therefore, we need to rely on God’s strength and wisdom to assist you and I with handling these matters with prudence.
As believers of Jesus Christ, you and I have the confidence that he is always with us.
Hereunder is a short prayer when you have workplace stress:
Our Heavenly Father,
I just praise you because you have been so good to me. Thank you for waking me up this morning. I am grateful for life I am in good health and for strength. There is someone somewhere in the world that did not make it through last night. So I give you thanks and praise that you have spared my life. I am alive and in the land of the living so I know that you are not finished with me just yet.
Thank you dear Father for your endless blessings in my life. I am grateful for fresh and clean air to breathe. I am grateful that I live in a peaceful country and the stability of the local Government. I am extremely thankful for my family.
I have loving and supportive family members which is a huge blessing. I give you all the praise, glory and honour because you are God. There is no one like you and there is none to be compared to you. For your name is marvelous. Your name is kind. Your name is great. I worship you almighty God. You are creator, a great and loving father.
Father, I am thankful for the job that you have blessed me with. You are my source and provider. All that I am and all that I have it comes from you. Every good blessing comes down from the father of lights which is you dear Father. I remembered how I prayed and fasted for you to open a door for me. And you have exceeded my expectations. I am beyond grateful and thankful.
However, father I am experiencing so many challenges on the job. My coworkers at the office are difficult to work along with. In addition, my boss is being unreasonable. Lord, the expectations are mounting and almost every day I feel so overwhelmed.
Father but you are my strength. You are my source and I am depending on you for wisdom to navigate this area of my life. Show me how I can be an agent of peace. Reveal to me how to navigate the interpersonal relationships among my colleagues.
Forgive me for the times when I relied on my own strength to give an answer instead of looking to you. Because you are perfect and you want me to be totally dependent on you.
Therefore father, I am asking you today to order my steps. Bridle my tongue. Help my answers to be ones that promote harmony and peace so that the kingdom of God will be glorified.
Proverbs chapter 21 verse 1states that the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. So Lord, I am asking you for favour in the situation with my boss. If it is your will, please change him.
Give him a heart of grace and compassion so that we can work along together. Father, on the other hand, if there is a trait in my character that it is your desire to develop, then help me to learn that lesson quickly for your honour and glory.
Lord as your child, I know that you are more concerned with my character than my comfort. Therefore, if this is a test to mature me then give me the grace to walk through it. As Job stated in the book of Job chapter 23 verse 10 when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Thank you for purifying me through this process and give me strength if this is your will to endure this process.
Father, you know how this situation is a great source of stress for me. Going to work everyday, father is tiring and at times I feel that I cannot bear this situation any longer.
But you oh Lord are a God of peace. You are able to make crooked paths straight. You can cause all my enemies to be at peace with me. You oh Lord are the one from who my strength comes from. My help in every situation comes from you.
Father, intervene in this situation. Give me wisdom and understanding that I may handle each and every encounter with prudence and diligence. Grant me clarity of thought that I may say only what you will have me to say. Let everything that I do be spirit led.
Reveal to me oh father, if this is a sign that I need to change jobs or consider a new career path. Lord I always want to be in your will. Please order my steps. Help me to never lean unto my own understanding.
Lord thank you for your assistance in this matter. If there is anything that I need to change on my end that could solve this situation, speak to my heart and show it to me.
Take not your spirit from me Oh Lord. Continue to be with me and guide me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
