Lord, give me the long view of my work
And mission in this world.
Help me to see that it is better
To fail in a cause that will ultimately succeed
Than to succeed in a cause
That will ultimately fail.
Inspire me to use all the talents
You have gifted me with.
Make me fair and honest in my dealings.
Keep me away from personal worries
That I may be able to give myself wholly
To the challenges of my profession.
Stop me for a minute of prayer
To offer You everything I do.
Bible Inspiration: Romans 12:6
Let each one of us, therefore, serve according to our different gifts.
