Rwandan Work Prayer

While in Butare we visited the National Museum of Rwandan in order to get a pre 1994 historical background view of the culture in this beautiful country. Imagine my surprise when I found this prayer in the lobby there – very appropriate for all of us as we go into our workplace. – Carson

Work Prayer

My Heavenly God,

As I enter this workplace I bring Your presence with me.

I speak Your peace, grace, mercy and perfect order into this place.

I acknowledge Your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and done within this place God.

I thank You for the gifts you have blessed me with.

I commit to using them responsibly in Your honor.

Give me a fresh supply of strength and knowledge to my job today.

Anoint my works, ideas and energy so that all my accomplishments may bring You glory, and my works bring faith, joy and smiles to those I come in contact with.

God, I pray that when I leave this place give me traveling mercy.

Bless my family and home.

In Jesus name, Amen

  1. I too have that prayer right here in the FBC office. It’s posted on the cabinet right next to my desk and I start each morning with it. Isn’t it fun to know that across the world folks are saying the same words to their same Lord? And better yet, He hears and answers! You and Bob sound like you are having an amazing trip together. Keep the great updates coming!

  2. Brilliant! Will make it my own.

  3. That prayer is something you will never forget. it will keep you attached to that place for years to come.

  4. Carson…I sent your spider photo to Gary Richmond, knowing he would be interested. Here is his response: Gary says…”I looked at spiders of South Africa and found three spiders that look very similar. This is definitely an orb weaver, not totally unlike our Golden Orb Weaver, harmless as far as it’s bite…and you would have a hard time getting it to bite you. Wish I could have seen it in person myself. Thanks for sending the picture!””
