When There Are Problems At Work

When There Are Problems At Work

Lord,

There is trouble at my work. Please give
me the skill, tact and courage to fix it. Help
me be an example and a resource to my boss and
colleagues. Banish my fears and replace them with
trust in you. Help me remember that all jobs, no
matter how humble, are a calling from you, an
opportunity to practice following your ways and
making your presence known. Thank you for the
gift of work. Help me use it wisely.

- Amen.

    2. I too have had many issues at work, and have hated it too. But, the Lord has seen me through it all, and he will do the same for you. Hold on, trust in him, give this work problem to him, he cares for you so much. Nothing is to mundane or of no intrest to the Lord, if it concerns you it concerns him, take everything to him in prayer.

    3. I've been at my new job for two months now. I like my job but I work with a lot of women. There younger then I and this place is a BIG gossip session. They talk behind each others back and keep up ALOT of mess. I try to stay humble and always be a lady. But today my name came up in some mess that I real had nothing to do with. I try and track the younger girls how to be ladies because there a bit wild.
      I'm very upset with what was said today and I put in my two wks notice. But I really like my job ! I don't no what to do and how to pray about this situation before I go to work tomorrow. Please pray for me a good outcome and god to bless me with another job.

  2. May today there be peace within.
    May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
    May you not forget the the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
    May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
    May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
    Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
    It is there for each and every one of us." st. Teresa of Avila

  7. I have been so stressed at my job that is is bringing my morale down. I have always been one of the hard working employees. My last job I held for 3 years and I did not have any issues. I have been at my new job for almost two years and I have been very unhappy. No matter how much I try I get spoken to in a condescending tone. Almost nothing has a protocol and it always feels like I am doing something wrong. It makes me feel terrible and I do not like it because I do my work with integrity and I do not feel respected. I can not quit despite those facts because Im a single mother but I wont complain... thank you God

    1. I, too, have been so stressed at my new job. It seems like nothing I do is right. Rules change daily in the workplace. I am passionate about what I do, yet, it never seems to be right for my manager and director. In the pass 30 days, I have been written up for simple mistakes. I'm not sleeping well at night for the fear that I'm going to lose my job. I pray that Jesus be a fence around me and I pray that He turns things around for my good. It's just so hard to see that. The more I try to speak His Word on my job and ask Him to protect, the more trouble I seem to be getting in to. I'm asking God to please, please shield everyone on this site who is going through on our jobs as we need them now more than ever! I ask God to spark that fuse of FAITH that seem so dark on our jobs right now and bless those people who try to remove us from our jobs. Help them to see that You, God, placed us there and give us the strength to endure in the name of Jesus, amen!

  8. I need prayers. At work, everyone talks about me. It is because I have different work values. Most of them do not know me. They just assume I am a rat because I try to do the right thing and what my boss instructs. I need a job but I am so miserable with the drama.

    1. I can relate. Drama at work will drain you mentally. I want to go to work and be happy. Not hoping that you don't have to loose your cool and loose your job. My job don't pay as much as my other one but it makes ends meet. I want to show my three kids that "As long as GOD is for you, NO ONE can be against you".

  20. I have been with my company for 60 days now and I had my 2nd one on one it did not go well at all. I eventually walked out of session and cried. I really like this company and want to stay here for a long time. My bosses goals are set way high for me because my level is high and I understand that but I am in the learning process still and finding it hard to meet his challenges I pray God you have put me in this place for the right reasons and that this is just a stumble that I will get up from. I pray Go that you give me the ability to complete the requirements of this job as it is expected of me. Give me the patience to do what I know I can do.. Amen

    2. Rachel, You are right. God put you there. I'm in a very similar situation to yours, and God put me here. I don't know what God's reasons are for giving us these trials. But I hope that things will improve over time if we continue to pray for God's mercy. I'll pray for you.

  24. I have been on my job for almost a year now. I thank God daily for this job but some of my co-workers are hard to deal with. I'm praying for peace and understanding in my work place. I have a family to help provide for so the option of quitting is out the window. I speak PEACE, no more back biting, speaking down on one another, nor judging. I'm trusting GOD. Thank you.

  25. I am two months into my job and I have faced some challenges. During the first few weeks I made some mistakes and my supervisor continues to give me a hard time. She says things like, "You have no attention to detail." And, "I'm watching you."

    I know that work is an essential part of life, but sometimes it is so hard.

    Please pray for me.

    1. Amen to your prayer. Some people repeat quotes and sayings and don't think anything of them. I believe we should watch even them. My point is in love. You should stop using this cliché..."(Blank)is killing me".

    2. I pray that changes will come. I totally understand. I am a resudential manager at a group home. I am net with staff not wanting to do what is asked of them. My boss for as long as I have worked with her believes everything that is told to her. She come to me, your voice tone, how can I change my voice at 68years old. I go to her asking a question. She runs to the CAO before she knows my reason. Then she wants to know if I have a problem with her. Can you imagine? So I now just question her about everything before I say ir do anything.

Pls pray for me that I'll be given a career where I can be happy and where my skills are fitted.Work is our second home,we spend more time in the workplace than in the house so as much as possible I pray that my second home will be a happy one also.I still have faith that God is watching me and will not leave me alone.

  30. I'm a working disable man who is having problems at work. It feel like I'm being replace or pressured to leave but I can't. I can't live off what social security gives me. Please if anyone reads theses post pray to God and ask him for mercy in my situation. And in Jesus name that I grow or get promoted than demoted or let go. It is very scary and I fear the worst. I will pray and give it to God in faith and trust he will intervirn with his loving angles and heart.
