Lord you know me and you love me. You hold everything together by your power and your grace. So I lay before you this difficult situation that I face. I trust that you will give me the strength and the wisdom I need to work these things through. I give you the job that I do, the responsibilities I have and the decisions I need to make. Come Lord, use me to bring peace, blessing and reconciliation in my workplace.

In the 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.

Prayer for patience and strength

God of grace,

You make me softer, kinder, gentler, generous, forgiving and loving.
Yet at times I know these gifts wear thin. I feel impatience rising, I sense resentment brooding and revenge is on my lips.
So I pray today and all days for more of your Spirit. May the grace that you pour out open the door for a renewing of my mind, a restoration of my heart and a transformation of my soul.

Thank you
That in you I find new strength
Discover more patience
And walk with grace at work in my life.

bible quotes about resolving disputes

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."

(Ephesians 4:2, NIV)

"Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what
it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,""

(1 Corinthians 13:4-5, The Message)

"And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples."

(John 13:34-35, GNT)
