Prayer Of Thanks For My Work Colleagues
Example goodbye letter for co-workers | Farewell letters for colleagues
You've had some laughs, you've had some tears, and now it's time to write a goodbye letter to a workplace that has become a real community.
In some special workplaces, the people are more than just colleagues, they are people whom you've enjoyed seeing every day, and whom you will miss when you go. People who help each other feel good about themselves and proud of what they achieve together.
It's a shame to leave but even worse would be not to tell them that they mattered to you and that you were so glad to have worked with them.
If this describes how you feel right now, then the following real-life farewell letters to colleagues should help you.
Trust me, the authors of the letters below spent a long time wondering what to write, and how to express all their years of appreciation in just one letter, which is exactly what is looming in front of you!
For those of you who haven't had a glowing time at work, the last example is worded neutrally to show your appreciation for the people who made your time bearable, adding limited contact details to ensure you can weed out those you don't , and develop relationships further with those you do .
Goodbye letter 1: Mine site
Well, the time has come to say goodbye to everyone that has made me smile here over the last few (and more) years.A company is more than just a workplace, it is the people that give it soul. I would just to say that there have been many great people here, both past and present, that have made the job truly enjoyable.
This resulted in laughter and practical jokes that are still evident on the tea-room walls. The “Girl Posse” at a time when we had all Female Team leaders and we scared the boys.
The life at camp drinking tadpole water and having all of us around the one television set, and watching Jim ruin another meal by putting mandarins in it at the end. I would to put out a special mention to Jason for picking the right people for the job here and it turned into a real family.We all had a job to do, we all respected each other and we got along. I know that this is one of the rare special workplaces where that ever happens.
We feel that we have been through all of the highs and lows together from brain tumours to engagements, and it is not often that you want to come back to work to spend time with a group of friends. It was a special time.
Professionally, it is rare to actually discover something new, and I am proud to be in the team that discovered [A, B and C].
You also don’t often get to see a project the whole way through and I feel honoured to have been given the privilege to see this project blossom over the last 3 years from the intial discovery all the way to closure. I apologise to all that had to wake me up in the middle of the night to give me updates or saw me in my pyjamas and safety boots at in the middle of the night checking that everything was going all right. I know it wasn’t pretty.Special thanks go to Michael (my Brains trust), Janine and John for keeping me organised and doing the real work. I am not sure what the future will bring but I am sure that it will involve many cups of tea.I hope that everyone achieves what will make them happy. Good luck in the future.
Are the examples on this page too long?

Goodbye letter 2: Exploration camp
Hello all,Well, as per tradition I am sending out my goodbye letter, except that as one of the last to leave, most of the people who I have come to know aren’t here anymore…sniff, sniff.
I have seen many changes here from the day that Andrew and I inserted the first official peg into the ground to the very successful and well kept site it is almost 2 years later. The one thing that hasn’t changed over that time has been the feeling of being here.
The culture that was set at the beginning is a testimony to this place, the feeling that you can express an idea, the can-do attitudes, the cooperation of all departments, regardless of what needs to be done, and oh! the morning teas! has been said before, it has been a pleasure to work here, but more than that – it has been the privilege to have met and mixed with the people. I guess in the early days we didn’t have any choice but to get along, especially when you have a dozen people jammed into a single portable.
I have enjoyed my time here, albeit shortened, and I will miss all that this place represents. I will especially miss this part of the outback. I think we all know that this is God's country, and once we work here, it's in our blood.But with any special place it is the people who make it more special and it will be those I will miss the most.
Even though we are moving to new horizons in different directions, we will always have our memories of this place.
I won't mention anyone in particular, as it will take way too long, and my fingers are getting tired!(But if you feel a gossip in my last hours here of trying to fill in time, you know where to find me!)
I am sure reunions and catch-ups will, if not often, be full of laughs and good times, so if anyone feels the urge to contact me, here are my details:Phone : 123456789Email: email@example.comAnd of course .Goodbye, good luck and you never know, see you later!Over and Out.JJ
Sorry to abandon you, Thank you for your light
I just wanted to let you all know, on my last day here, that I truly admire and respect my colleagues for the courage, inner strength and humour so many of you have shown me. While I am sorry I'm not able to continue working with you, I hope to apply everything I have learned from you to future opportunities, including [company name] where I will be working from [date].
I want you know that all of your efforts mattered. All of the clients in other departments and outside the company have benefitted from the services/products you provide. The world is a better place because of you. Please don't ever forget that.
I wish you all the best of luck,[Name] [LinkedIn profile]

Farewell Note DO's:
- Do let people know when your last day is, your contact info, and maybe your reason for leaving (retirement, new position, new career).

- Let people know who to direct questions to in your absence.

dear lord, i am a young girl living alone in new york city. as hard as i try, i cannot tell who is real or not in this town. who is honest and speaking truth in your name or who is insincere.
I do not want to struggle anymore and I ask kindly oh Lord that you make anew my working relationships and friendships so only those closest to you oh lord in mind and heart come into my life and influence me.
I want to take care of my family using my gifts and I wish to be guided in the most right way, in the most correct manner in service of this undertaking and of the creative energy you have given me oh lord.
I do not want to be lusted after or controlled, i simply want the opportunity to do good work and take care of my family. thank you all and god bless you with love and protection throughout your life.
Return to Daily Devotional
In the United States today, so many people are unemployed. Some are fearful of being laid off. Others wonder about promotions. Many are looking for better jobs. There are a number of issues facing our country today regarding employment. Here are 7 prayers that you can pray about specific needs in the workplace.
Prayer for Work
Most Merciful Father,
I’m at my wits end, Lord. I feel I have tried every avenue to find work and yet I have not gotten a single phone call about my applications that I have sent out. Lord, I want to provide for my family.
I want to make a steady income that can pay my rent/mortgage and provide meals for my spouse and children. Lord, you know what is best for me and I lay these burdens at your throne now.
You are good all of the time, Father, and I am placing my trust in you this day. I love you Lord! Amen
Jobs at Risk
You already know before I speak what I am going to say. Nothing I say is a surprise to You and yet You yearn for my voice daily. I love You, God, because You love me as Your own child. I bring you a huge burden today, Lord. My company is downsizing because they are losing money. O gracious Lord, my department was told about potential lay-offs. I plead with You now, Father.
Please keep my position safe. I am scared for my future, Lord. I pray for Your peace that truly passes all understanding. Give me an ease of mind as I continue to work at my job. Lord, if I am laid off, it is because You have allowed it and I pray that You would have another open door ready for me to walk through. You are King, Father, and I trust in Your will this day.
You have blessed me with so much, Father. I have a wonderful family and church family. I thank you for Your love and I must lay a burden at Your feet. Father, You know about the promotion that I may get. Lord, it would be a huge blessing to receive it. I am not putting my faith in money, Lord. My faith is in You only.
If You allow me this promotion, I will use it faithfully as You see fit. I will be responsible with it and pay off existing debts and I will continue to tithe at church. Father, I am giving this completely to You and whatever Your decision is, I will thank You because You are loving, gracious and generous even in poverty.
I love You, Abba Father. Amen
“While there are many problems facing us all at our jobs, we have one ultimate solution and that is to trust fully in God.”
I praise You because You love me in spite of all of my failures and weaknesses. You wash me in Your Word and clean my soul up more with each passage I read. Father, I bring You a burden this day. I feel I am stuck in a dead end job with no possibility of promotion. I am barely floating above water right now.
You have blessed me with other talents that I could potentially use in other career fields. Father, if You are willing, I pray for You to open a door to a different career for me. I would love to use the talents You have given me to provide for my family. Where You lead, I will follow.
I praise Your name, Lord! Amen
Am I Transparent?
Blessed be Your name always. You have set my feet on a solid rock, Jesus Christ. I thank You, Jesus, for Your bravery and love that saved me from my sins on the cross. I will praise You forever! Lord, I feel a doormat at work.
I have tried to promote ideas to better the work environment while cutting down on costs. Management usually pacifies me with words they will not follow through on. They say, “we will consider it” but I know they forget about me as soon as they walk away.
Father, You have provided me this job and I am grateful for it. I pray that you will soften the hearts of the leadership there. I don’t even care if they reject every idea of mine, Father. I just want to them to actually care and consider my suggestions.
I just want to be seen as a person and not an object to make them money. I love You, Lord and I will follow You wherever You lead. I love You! Amen
Struggles with Co-workers
You are abounding in grace and mercy for Your children. I am so thankful that You call me Your child. Lord, work is getting stressful because of the environment I am in. Father, there are many people who hate You there and they make my life miserable because they know that I love You.
I trust in James as it says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds.” (James 1:2) I realize the benefit of being persecuted for believing in Jesus and I gladly accept whatever comes my way. Lord, I pray that You would soften the hearts of my co-workers. I will keep planting seeds, Lord.
I pray that they will let you water them. I love you, Father. Amen
Oh Merciful Father,
My company has lost a great man to a tragic accident and his life was taken from him. Father, many people at work really loved this man and everyone is lost right now. Father, I pray for strength while I am grieving.
Lord, use me to show Your love to all of those hurting at my job. I want to be the light that shines in the darkness, Father. I really need Your strength though. Carry me, Lord, as I help carry others through this difficult time.
You are my strength when I am weak, Lord. I love You, Father. Amen
While there are many problems facing us all at our jobs, we have one ultimate solution and that is to trust fully in God. God knows what is best for us in all circumstances. I pray that you will trust in God fully with your employment burdens, wants and needs as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling. God bless you all.

To maintain a working relationship with co-workers who are hard to get along with, use this prayer for them and for yourself.
Difficult to get along with co-worker’s prayer:
What about the difficult co-worker that everybody struggles to get along with, or at least you do. If you have lived long enough you already know that relationships in and the workplace can be difficult.
As Christians we are called to love all people, bosses, even those who seem to be difficult to get along with.
Matthew 5:46 says “If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.”
Here is a prayer to pray for difficult co-worker relationships:
Example: I know that you are well aware of the struggles I have with relating to is always so negative and it seems whenever I give a suggestion or say something there is always a loud and negative response that gives that goes against whatever I say. I can’t seem to understand why there is so much animosity between us and it certainly makes me want to stay as far away from as possible. I feel anxious and stressed out about even going into work knowing that I will have to deal with this situation.
After telling God about the difficult relationship, continue praying this prayer:
My first reaction when relationships are difficult is to just stay away and have no involvement with the individual but I know that you call me to set an example for Christ and to love all who I encounter.
I am asking for your help today and asking you to show me how to understand so that we can have a healthy work relationship that who knows may turn into a friendship because you work in mysterious ways.
I pray for today that you will show touch in a special way. I pray that you will bless and that would have an encounter with you today that will cause to be transformed.I pray that you would heal the inner hurts and pains experienced in life that are having an effect on their means to relate and communicate with me and with others.
I pray that you would give a heart of flesh in replace for what seems to be a heart of stone.
I pray that through me and others in life that you would let your love be known to .
This seems such a difficult tasks when I look at it through my eyes but I know that it is not too difficult for you.
I know that your works are perfect to perform in us what you desire to accomplish in and through us and I believe that you are working on and that you have a purpose and a plan for their life.
Your word is clear according to John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son so that whosoever would believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life”. I pray that if do not know you that they would find salvation through Jesus Christ and that through my life that the light of Christ would shine for to see that there is something different about me.
I pray for whatever may be going on beneath the surface with that would cause them to hurt or act out the way that does.
I pray for peace in the home, I pray for relationships in the home, I pray for financial situations, I pray for healing for any health issues or anything that may be going on that feels alone with or that it is too much to bear.I pray that will find healing, deliverance, and wholeness that only comes through a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Father God, I know that when I pray that you hear me and that you will move in this situation.
No matter how long it may take for change to be noticeable, I pray that you would change me also in the process so that I do not feel overwhelmed or stressed or anxious around this person but that I will give it all over to you and allow you to work through me to love and to show kindness, and compassion to and this come through humbling myself under your mighty righteous hand. For, I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength”.
In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
