A prayer for my husband whilst he works

Loving Father,

I pray for my husband as he leaves for work.
Lord, please come and uplift his heart. Give him focus and energy to accomplish all that he needs to do.
I pray that you would provide rest and relief from the stress he faces and wisdom to make the right decisions. Father, would you walk with him and speak to him now, that he might feel your presence and guidance.

I ask all this in the precious name of Jesus.

Prayer for difficult boss

Dear Father,

Thank you that you are with me. Thank you that your Holy Spirit is working in my life to bring Kingdom blessings to the earth. I come before you with the difficulties I am experiencing with my manager. I lay before you the stress that it creates for me, and the tensions that I am aware of. Please give me great wisdom, strength and grace at this time. Help me to respect my boss, but also not to be mistreated. Give me wisdom as I seek to negotiate, to stand my ground, and to remain respectful of my work colleagues.

At this time, I choose to lean on you Lord, for in you I find strength and grace.
