This is a fantastic prayer from William Barclay. I invite you to pray it with me during the course of this week. Please feel free to pass it onto anyone who may need the prayer.
"Give me this day, O God, the energy I need to face my work; the diligence I need to do it well; the self-discipline which will make me work just as hard, even if there be none to see and none to praise, and none to blame;
The self-respect which will not stoop to produce anything which is less than my best; the courtesy and the considerateness, which will make me easy to live with and easy to work with.
Help me so to live today that I may make this world a happier place wherever I may be; Through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen."
