Imagine if Jesus had complete control of your workplace today.
You would anticipate what new and exciting miracles Jesus was going to perform this week.
You would walk with a spring in your step and a gleam in your eye because your great, big God was handling every potential problem.
If Jesus was in absolute control of where you work, employees would be so busy helping each other to excel that your companies productivity would skyrocket.
And if Jesus was in control you would be more concerned about your co-worker getting the accolades and promotions than you would about yourself.
There would be joy in servitude.
There would be peace and harmony.
Stress would be a thing of the past.
Integrity and fairness would reign.
Sick days would all but disappear.
Managers would recognize a job well done.
Transparency and trust would so permeate the hearts and minds of men and women that the local newspapers would want to investigate the source of such harmony and wellbeing.
If Jesus could have His way today.
History provides great examples of what happens when great men and women of God prayed until their communities were shaken.
Men like Johnathan Edwards, who preached “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” and sparked a huge revival, or George Whitfield, who prayed until he shook under the power of God or the great Welsh Revival where 180,000 men came to God over a two-year period.
All of this is still possible today!
If we will but pray and allow Jesus to flow through us to those around us, then our jobs can be transformed.
Peace, joy, and love can be the order of the day – every day.
If we will but pray.
We must pray earnestly, fervently, and consistently.
If we will, then God will answer in ways that we can only imagine.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
How can I pray for your workplace today?
What are the most pressing needs?
What is the corporate climate?
What human ways of thinking need to be saturated with the love of God?
