O God, you are the source
of all that I have and all that I am.
Give me the energy
to apply my talents diligently,
and the courage to carry out my work
in a way that is responsible, honest, and fair.
Through your Holy Spirit,
help me to discern your will throughout the day,
to speak the truth with love,
and to pour myself out
in service to others.
Help me to improve my environment
with a loving and joyful attitude,
to practice the highest ethical standards,
to remember you at all times
and in all places,
and to bring the light of Christ
into my workplace.
May the way I treat those around me
give evidence of my relationship with you.
I ask this through Christ our Lord.
