Please pray for workplaces.
All businesses and organisations go through difficult times. Financial problems. Unwell employees. Redundancies & cutbacks. Restructuring & reorganisation. Cashflow issues. Poor sales & profit warnings. Bullying & harassment issues. Poor relationships. Bad practice. Weak leadership. Difficult colleagues. Customer complaints. Concerns about Brexit… the list could be endless. All such issues can impact not only upon employees but also their families, friends, customers and intermediaries.
There will, of course, be many times for good news as well: so our prayers can thank God for the many blessings there are.
If you would like prayer for your workplace please contact me and I will publish the concern below (you can anonymise the organisation or people concerned if you prefer and your name and email address will not be published). Please do not share information which has not been made public. Depending on length, I may summarise or edit.
Each topic shown will remain on this page for four weeks. I will pray for each situation daily – do join me in committing these people to God’s love and care.
