"At the Day of Judgment, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done."
Think back to this morning. Recall how you started your day at work.
How did you consecrate yourself and your staff?
Did you pray together?
Did you share a hymn or an inspirational verse with one another?
Did you do any form of consecration at all?
Certainly, there is much buzz about the separation of church and state when such a subject comes up. Do not dwell on what you cannot or should not do. Identify what you can do.
If you own the business, even if it is a franchise, you are welcome to offer staff members a period during the day where they can join others in prayer. Provide them with a place and time. Share how your faith has led you to the point of making such an offer.
Don't get preachy. Just make the offer.
You can do so by organizing a morning prayer meeting or devotional period 15 to 30 minutes prior to scheduled work time. This may work on those days where you have that dreaded morning meeting. Prepare for presentations by dotting each and every "i" and crossing each and every "t," but be sure to also solicit the prayers of your fellow Christians at work.
Be sure to let people know that it is not mandatory. Don't try to make it a full-blown worship service. Just offer it to them. Those who want it will surely show up and serve as the core group. Others will drop in as they find themselves in desperate need of prayer and support. Just make the offer where you can and get started, in prayer of course.
