So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a few minutes to pray for peace and guidance. God will be with you every step of the way.
But before we dig in I wanted to go over some important keys…
- Get specific with the Lord… If it’s a project that is stressing you out or a person. Make that known to God.
- Remember God wants to hear from YOU… Use these prayers as inspiration and guide to dive into your own personal prayer time with the Lord.
- Be careful stress… Stress can be very detrimental to our emotional and physical health. If it’s affecting you greatly I would encourage you to look at your work environment and load. Perhaps talk to your boss or if you are the boss it might be time to give yourself some grace. Or it might be time for a new job. Whatever the case communicate with others and especially with God!
