The Best Prayer Before Work
The best prayer before is the Lord’s Prayer, which is the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples to pray, and it covers all the essential aspects of prayer for both your business and personal life: praise, petition, forgiveness, protection, and submission. You can say this prayer anytime before or during the work day to connect with God more spiritually:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.The Holy Bible English Standard Version (ESV)
