If you are looking for catholic prayer to say before work, here are 5 Catholic Prayers to pray before work.
The sanctification of professional work is a living seed, capable of bearing the fruit of holiness in an immense multitude of souls: for the great majority of men, being a saint means sanctifying one’s own work, sanctifying oneself in one’s work, and sanctifying others with it. worked
Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer
Have you ever wanted to have prayers to pray before work or have a handful of short daily prayers? The aforementioned quote corresponds to the founder of Opus Dei. It is clear that we want to give ourselves with excellence, that we want to unite our work and our faith. We know, a thousand and one times we have heard that Jesus tells us, he asks us, that he needs us to be Salt of the earth and Light of the world. But how difficult, Lord!
We would love to, but it costs us. Jesus, in His infinite mercy, has left us the Holy Spirit so that we can take it to others, to the ends of the earth. If the disciples, hidden by fear, we’re able to proclaim the Good News beyond their own limitations, we too will be able (and even more so, Jesus wants it) to make heaven on earth in our work.

who hid his talents in the hole of selfishness,
give us the understanding and action to multiply talents,

so that on your return we offer you not only twice as much,
but an infinity of talents that are the reflection of your holy love for us.

in the creation of the world.

to be my eternal companion and friend,

so that every word, every action
