Prayer 208: The horrors of work

Dear God

Oh well, back to work today after a lovely week off. How I hate having to go back to the office, groan. Honestly, retirement is surely a valid career choice, but I fear nobody believes me when I say so. Anyway, if I absolutely have to go to work, I pray You will be with me, seeing me through this first, worst day. Thank You.

Prayer 126: the joy of retirement

Dear God

Thank You for a really relaxing holiday last week and for all that valuable time away from work. It makes me realise just how wonderful retirement is going to be and, honestly, I absolutely can’t wait for it. However, it’s back to work today, I fear, so please do give me the courage to face it. Thank You.

Prayer 35: holiday blues

Dear God, holidays are fine but the worst thing about them is having to go back to work again. Honestly, You wouldn’t believe how much I’m looking forward to retirement but unfortunately it’s not going to happen yet. In the meantime, please could You help me get through today and somehow get inside my “work head” again, at least until I come back home. Which I’m very much looking forward to, I must say. Thank You.
