Prayer for favor (a prayer for God's blessing on an event or situation)


Please cover this situation with your loving hand.
Bring your peace, healing and hope.
Hold us close and keep our hearts and minds safe.
We ask that the power of your truth would turn things around and bring your light and love.
We choose to rest in your Almighty hand, knowing that you are our fortress in times of struggle.
Thank you that you will protect us from all harm.


Prayer for favor at work

Dear Lord,
I give you all that I am,
The study, training and skills that I have.
The work that you have given me to do.
The money I earn.
The hopes and aspirations I have,
I lay all these at your feet.
Please bless my work.
Help me to excel in all that I do.
Inspire me to face new challenges,
And guide me each day I pray.


"Help me to excel in all that I do"
