A Prayer before Beginning Any Task

Almighty God,
our help and refuge,
source of wisdom
and tower of strength,
you know I can do nothing
without your guidance and help.
Help me and direct me
to divine wisdom and power,
that I may accomplish this task
and whatever I may undertake to do,
faithfully and diligently, according to your will,
so that it may be profitable to myself and others,
and to the glory of your holy name.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
now and forever.
