Work Frustration

If you are frustrated with your work, or you feel like you're failing at what you do, perhaps you need to see your work or your career from an entirely new perspective. Rather than doing your work your way with the results you want, think of doing God's work God's way with the results God wants.

Grant, we beseech Thee, Merciful Lord, help and deliverance unto us, who are visited with grievous sickness and mortality. Sanctify to us this our sore distress, and prosper with Thy continual blessing those who labor to devise for mankind protection against disease and pain through Him Who both healed and hallowed pain, Thy Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
