Christ Can Be in Your Work

St. John of Kronstadt on how Christ can be involved in everything we do.
Some of us tend to think of our jobs—either inside or outside the home—as something separate from the spiritual life. St. John of Kronstadt, however, tells us that Christ can be directly involved in everything we do:
In all your works, either at home or at the place of your service, do not forget that all your strength, your light and your success are in Christ and His Cross; therefore, do not fail to call upon the Lord before beginning any work, saying: Jesus, help me! Jesus, enlighten me! Thus your heart will be supported and warmed by lively faith and hope in Christ, for His is the power and glory unto ages of ages.
"It has been a source of great fellowship and instruction. It is also a way to feel connected to my fellow believers. It also brings the beautiful music of the Orthodox Church into my home and reminds me to pray."
