Bless his work

How fitting that the next prayer in the list is a prayer for my husband's work!  We've been praying a lot for my work and for me to be successful, looks like I need to share the love!  As some of you know, Brian broke his arm roughly 5 weeks ago.  God was SO gracious in providing him a boss that still allowed him to go to work and do "whatever he could."  I many bosses do you know that will pay you for sitting around. (well, will pay you KNOWING you are just sitting around)  I'm just so thankful that he didn't have to take 6 weeks away from work without pay!

"Lord, I pray that You would bless the work of Brian's hands.  May his labor bring not only favor, success, and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well.  If the work he is doing is not in line with your perfect will for his life, reveal it to him.  Show him what he should do differently and guide him down the right path.  Give him strength, faith, and a vision for the future so he can rise above any propensity for laziness.  May he never run from work out of fear, selfishness, or a desire to avoid responsibility.  On the other hand, help him to see that he doesn't have to work himself to death for man's approval, or grasp for gain beyond what is a gift from You.  Give him the ability to enjoy his success without striving more.  Help him to excel, but free him from the pressure to do so.  I pray that you will be Lord over his work, and may he bring you into every aspect of it.  Give him enough confidence in the gifts you've placed in him to be able to seek, find, and do good work.  Open up doors of opportunity for him that no man can close.  Develope his skills so that they grow more valuable with each passing year.  Show me what I can do to encourage him.  I pray ther his work will be established, secure, successful, satisfying, and financially rewarding.  May he not be "lagging in dilligence, but fervent in spirit, serving the Lord." (Romans 121:11) Let him be like a tree planted by the stream of Your living water, which brings forth fruit in due season. May he never wither under pressure, but grow strong and prosper (Ps 1:3)."

In Jesus name, Amen
