Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. I Thessalonians 5:16-18, ESV
The Power of Prayer
This book focuses on the fact that prayer has a place in everyone’s workday, and that prayer can result in a more peaceful, successful, and harmonious career. If we, as Christians, are called to “pray without ceasing,” that certainly includes the 8+ hours a day that most of us spend at work!
Having a guide like this book handy can be helpful in getting into a habit of habitual prayer. Once you make prayer an integral part of your workday, it will become second nature. That way, when stressors and frustrations inevitably emerge, your first instinct will no longer be to:
- Gossip to a coworker
- Become overwhelmed
Instead, a habit of prayer encourages us to bring our struggles to the feet of Jesus right away, surrendering even the most mundane parts of our day to the one who cares about all of the details.
