A Workers Prayer, Colossians 3:23

A Workers Prayer.

Dear God and Master, you deserve my best service.
Forgive me for working only for myself,
Forgive me for thinking my life was only mine,
And for thinking work was only a means,
And that my job was to serve my interest.

O Lord, may my work not bring shame to Your name.
Help me to not look for profit or reward.
Help me to view all work as worship to You.
I pray that my efforts will be worthy of You.
I pray to honestly thank you for today’s task.

When others see my work may they give you praise.
Thank you that my work shows my love for God.

Colossians 3:23 says, "Whatever your do work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters."

A little commentary: I suggest you read this a few times and when you are comfortable with it you can pray it in your own words.

Thank you for visiting my blog and reading my prayer-poem.  
I hope you were inspired by it and that it is a blessing on your day.
