One of my favorite things about Monday mornings at Guideposts is prayer fellowship. I happen to work for a faith-based organization where for more than 60 years, prayer has been very much a part of its culture. All staff is welcome to attend, but no one is obligated. Employees pray for requests submitted by staff, donors and volunteers and listen to one of their colleagues share a brief inspirational message. We hold our prayer time at 9:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Ruth Peale Chapel, named after our co-founder Ruth Stafford Peale. The small quaint chapel room has several pews that accommodate about 25 people.

The weekly prayer time is a great way to refocus, help others and start the morning off right with God. The gathering promotes a spirit of community and support for one another. It allows us to pray on behalf of individuals within and outside of the office who are in need. These 15 minutes of prayer and fellowship encourages us when we are down and empowers us with hope to face the busy workweek.

Most work places don’t have a set time for prayer or spiritual activities given the diversity of faiths, which makes sense. But this doesn’t preclude anyone from finding a way to talk with God in their own time or as they go about their workday. In some companies, people use their lunchtime to gather for prayer or faith discussions. Each person must find what is right for him or her.

The opportunities for prayer and fellowship with others are endless inside and outside the workplace: online communities, chat rooms, weekly groups at a church, a weekly prayer call, a men’s or women’s group, a faith-based business group, or just finding a prayer partner. Although we can always pray alone, it’s encouraging to join with others. How do you connect with others for prayer and fellowship in the workplace and beyond? Please share with us.

Lord, lead us to join with others for prayer and fellowship.
