I ask for protection from well-meaning, but misguided colleagues and supervisors at work. All too often, actions can be misconstrued and lead to situations that never needed to be.
I ask for wisdom for all to recognize good faith and to act in good faith when dealing with others at work. I ask for guidance and inspiration and compassion when dealing with those at work.
I pray that a good man who works for me will realize that he was in error when judging that I had acted with malice toward him when taking some of his tasks yesterday.
I ask for the right words to touch his heart and mind, not for my sake, but for his and our coworkers. If he must leave, I pray for happiness and success for him and for the remainder of our team.
