The psalmist says "We will rejoice!" This means more people than just you will rejoice and be glad as you increase in productivity and fruitfulness...
Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it."
The psalmist says "We will rejoice!" This means more people than just you will rejoice and be glad as you increase in productivity and fruitfulness. It always begins with you to multiply the desired results and effectiveness. You are a witness as you do your best as unto the Lord. When an employee fears the Lord, wisdom begins to surface for understanding God's ways and means.
Prayer"Yes, Lord, this is the day that You have made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. Father, I ask for Your help in increasing my productivity so that my employer will rejoice and be glad. Let me work smarter, not harder. I worship and honor You with my work and increased productivity. Reveal to me any areas where I may be lacking and give me Your strategies to better handle my work to achieve the greatest results possible. Help me to be organized and use my time wisely. My heart's desire is to give and do my very best and be a witness for You by being a more productive and fruitful worker. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen."

I felt my confidence increase as I recited this prayer. I can't help myself, so I'm looking to You Father and I pray for those that have visited this website as well as for those that haven't realized they need YOUR help.
UnderstandingYour Spiritual Authority and Responsibility
When Adam and Eve were created, God gave them authority to manage all matters on the earth. "The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's; but the earth He has given to the children of men."111 Their sin in the garden represented a rebellious heart that desired to move from manager to owner. Satan convinced them that God was holding out on them, and he appealed to their pride to be all knowing like God.112 Each of us has an innate sin nature that wants to be the boss, not just a steward of what God has entrusted to us. However, stewardship is man's role, to represent His interests and to execute His will on earth.
"So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads," says the Lord God (Ezek 22:30-31). (This is an excerpt from a new manuscript by Os Hillman).
Because we've been entrenched in the "secular versus sacred" model for so long, it can be difficult for us to view our work as a ministry and workplace believers as missionaries in the 9 to 5 Window. However, God tells us clearly that we are to glorify God in all that we do (see Col. 3:17,24). One way we can do this is through intercessory prayer, which can be characterized as an intense type of prayer for others (see Eph. 6:18; Col. 4:12), the priestly calling of all believers (see 1 Pet. 2:5; Exod. 19:6) and the Holy Spirit praying in us (see Rom. 8:26-27). Having people pray for us to fulfill our purpose and calling in our workplaces is consistent with the will of God for every individual.
