10 Heartfelt prayers for productivity, motivation and success.

Are you feeling overwhelmed and distracted?

Like there’s way too much to do but never enough hours in the day to get through it all?

You are not alone!

Many of us are in the same boat. Juggling the demands of life, work, family and all the other things on our to-do list.

It’s exhausting.

The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone.

As a believer, you are welcome to lean into God’s grace and strength. He promises to provide the rest and renewal that you need if you just ask.

You can pray to God for productivity, motivation, strength and anything else you need.

Matthew 11:28-29
Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
the power behind prayer and praying Gods word over your life

What an honour and blessing that we can run to the feet of our Lord in those times when we’re feeling defeated, overwhelmed and worn out trying to do it all.

Why should we pray for productivity?

Prayer is a powerful tool that we have access to as believers.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that you only need to pray about the ‘big things’.

You may think that your productivity or lack thereof is trivial, not worthy of prayer, and something you just need to figure out on your own.

But that’s not true!

No matter how small, trivial or mundane a task may be – God is interested in it. As we grow as believers, we develop a closer relationship with God where we should be going to him about everything. He wants us to cast our burdens upon Him.

Your prayers for productivity can be so powerful. Praying to God can give you clarity, renew your focus and and give you the energy boost to get through your tasks with greater effectiveness.

God knows your limits, so it’s ok if you don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything. You can come to Him and let Him give you guidance on how to prioritize or delegate tasks.

He will also provide strength when you need it, to carry on and do what needs to be done.
