Protecting & Blessing Work

Prayer for Protection
and Blessing of Work

Guide my heart
and guard this work.
Keep it safe from harm,
and the snares of fiends and foes
and every hostile force
that may oppose it.

[optional verses]

From negativity
and nay-sayers,
guard it.

From pessimism
and petty jealousies
guard it.

From every insult
and all unfair criticism
guard it.

From malfunctions,
delays, and lost data,
guard it.

From budget cuts,
and changing staff,
guard it.

[Verse 2]

Guide my heart
and bless this work.
Make it a holy gift
an instrument of grace and goodness;
evidence that Your joy
lives in me.

[optional verses]

With beauty
and intelligence,
bless it.

With persistence
and patience,
bless it.

With encouragement
and assistance
bless it.

With skillful handling,
speed and success
bless it.

With loving care
and sure support,
bless it.
