My on-the-Job Prayer

Lord, it’s easy to be bitter
And to think your pay’s too low
Or you’re never given credit
For the many things you know;

But Lord, I know that’s out of line;
It’s an attitude that’s wrong—
We should be very thankful
And not griping all day long.

We take our jobs for granted
And forget that we’re a team—
That being worthy of our hire
Is the way to earn esteem.

So please Dear Lord, remind me
To be worthy of my pay
And by my actions demonstrate
That I walk the Christian way.

I pray this in the name of Christ. Amen
B. Killebrew
