A prayer for Labor Day:
God of all, we give thanks for the different ways of employment to which you call us to serve. Some focus on the use of our hands, some with tools, some with minds, some with creativity, and more. Whatever we do as jobs give praise to you when our vocation is first and foremost being a Child of God. Give us strength to do our jobs and help us to see how we can share about you each day through what we say and do. For those, Lord, who are retired from public work, give them the reminder that their lives are as important to sharing your good news as ever. And for those whose job is learning and being educated, help them also see the importance of being trained and that they have an important place in your kingdom. Amen.
