Labor Day

A prayer for Labor Day - 

Lord Jesus Christ, as once You shared in our human toil and thus hallowed the work of our hands. Bless and prosper those who maintain the industries and service sectors of this land. Give them a right regard for their labors and grant them the just reward for their work that they may find joy in serving You an din supplying our needs; 

Heavenly Father, grant Your mercy and grace to Your people in their many and various callings. Give them patience and strengthen them in their Christian vocation of witness to the world and of service to their neighbor in Christ's name.
