Blessed Work

Lord,

You hear my voice in the morning,

and I watch and wait upon you to answer me,

give me grace to still my heart and quiet my mind,

that your soft nudges, your gentle presence,

and your sweet impressions,

would find rest in me.

Fill me with strength for the day,

let my spirit be strong,

filled with faith, hope, and love,

bold, confident, courageous in you,

give health to my bones, body, and muscles,

to sustain the work you’ve given my hands to do.

Don’t let me forget that it’s with you that I labor,

keep me from overwhelm, independence,

and building my small towers of Babel,

let me remember that you’re always with me,

your presence sustains me,

your wisdom guides me,

and that I’m never alone.

There’s work to do for your kingdom,

and I praise you for your joy that is my strength.

I bless you in my work and in my rest,

you alone are worthy.

Amen.
