In A Hard Time Work Environment?

When we know that in whatever we do we are working for the Lord (Colossians 3:23-24), it influences how we respond to those “hard time” work environments—bad bosses, obnoxious co-workers, no promotions, demotions, no salary increases, fear of losing a job, monotonous work, frustration with raising children, etc. We know that our work matters to Him and we can persevere.

But we too often we mistakenly confuse God’s promise of prosperity, blessings, and the abundant life with success and the American dream, so when we go through crucible work experiences we can question God's presence and care. As a result we can find ourselves working for ourselves rather than for God.

Pray for your work situation. Pray for your boss & coworkers. Pray for your competitors. Pray for your attitude. Pray for classmates. Pray for your children. Pray for your health care workers. Right now pray for ________________!
