Invite the power of prayer before work to get you spiritually and mentally started for the day.
Prayer is not just for meals, healing, and church services. Prayer before work is a powerful way to protect your heart and enter in His presence before you do anything else throughout the day. Prayer is also a beautiful way to connect with God and allow quality time to hear His truths over your life.
Allow me to share some staggering statistics.
Just in the US, there are over 157 million people in the American workforce (SOURCE).
It is staggering how stress and work have impacted not just The States, but all around the world. For example, Japan reports hundreds of workers that commit suicide or die at work due to overworking. In Japan, they call this torment “karoshi,” or literally working yourself to death (SOURCE).
All this to say, work doesn’t have to be a time consuming and tormenting place.
Work is part of our lives. For most, it is an essential way of life in order to survive.
So, why not make it a place of worship by inviting God before you enter your workplace? Equip yourselves by declaring His truths over your life in the quite place of prayer. Prayer has completely changed my life and the way I view worship at work.
Through your actions you have the opportunity to worship God by honoring and loving the people you work with (such as bosses, colleagues, and subordinates). You have the opportunity to bless your day, the people that you meet, and your connection with God.
