  8. Praying

    Lord, I thank you that you helped me to pray after making a couple of mistakes at work today. Fill me with Holy Spirit and let me find great favor at work despite my mistakes. They weren’t that serious mistakes, none hurt except probably my ego, but I still want to be a blameless representative of Christ at work. Would you help me? Fill me with grace and wisdom. Let me find favor because you’re with me when I’m surrounded by many who denounce you. Jesus, I need more of you.

  10. Mistake at work

    Dear Lord, you saw me. I gave a presentation today and for the large part, I knew my subject and I came across well. But I was nervous in front of my peers and leaders. I jumbled some of my words at times, talked a little fast, and at one point I was literally out of breath. Even though I was given many accolades today, I left kicking myself and feeling quite the failure. I know that I can do things going forward to keep this from going happening again. Right now, I am agonized. I know that You were with me and always will be. I am saved by Your blood but I’m beating myself up. Help me to let go, to keep holding on to you, and never forget who I am in Christ.

    Lord pls forgive me for the big mistake that I have done. I do stay focused and alert when I do my work. I truly love this job and I am trying my level best score well and to be a stunning staff in the eye of my managers. But I totally have no clue how mistakes had taken place. This month I tried my best avoid any defect or escalation so that my score remains high and I will score better. Pls forgive my mistake and wrong doings so that my managers will not fire me up and will give me space and chance to rectify this problem. I do not want to get insulted and scolded for this. Lord pls forgive me so that this problem will never ever get escalated higher and the problem will remain silent and there will be no further action taken on me. I have sorted the problem internally and hope my managers will solve and close this issue internally without higher authority escalation. This struggle and obstacle will be a milestone for me to be the best and shinning star. I have learned my lesson pls forgive me and allow me to perform better.
