The majority of us spend most of our days at work, laboring alongside our coworkers day-in and day-out. We spend countless hours each week with our coworkers; the good ones become close friends and even like family, but bad coworkers can be one of the most stressful parts of any job.

The Bible says, “pray without ceasing” and “by prayer and supplication let our request be made known to God.” Whether you have difficult coworkers who don’t carry their own weight, leaving more work for you to do, or if you have great coworkers and you want to pray for their wellbeing or blessing, it is important to let our requests be made known unto God.

The Power of Prayer

There is power in prayer when we pray in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus said:

Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in MY name, I will do it.” John 14: 13-14

There is power in the name of Jesus. This is one of the great promises that we have in the Word of God. We must have faith that God has the power to do what He said He would do.

Jesus also said:

“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted to you.”Mark 11: 24

If we pray in faith that God is able to answer our prayers and believe that we will receive the answer to our prayers, the Bible tells us it will be granted to us.

Forgive When You Pray

  • Mark 11: 25-26“Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will you Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”

The Bible is very clear about the importance of forgiveness, not only the forgiveness of our sins through the blood of Jesus Christ, but our forgiveness of others.

When we pray, we are to forgive those who have done wrong to us. If your coworker has done you wrong, forgive them and then lift them up in prayer that God might have mercy and help them to change their ways.

No matter what we are praying about, be it our coworkers or anything else, we must not have any unforgiveness in our hearts when we pray.
