A Prayer for Labor Day

In the United States, we have so much for which to thank God. Even if your job is imperfect (and whose isn't?), be grateful for the work you have. Today is a great day to also pray for those who are unemployed or are seeking other employment. I found this prayer which resonated with me and perhaps will with you as well:

God our Creator,
We are the work of your hands.
Guide us in our work,
That we may do it, not for self alone,
But for the common good.
Make us alert to injustice,
Ready to stand in solidarity,
That there may be dignity for all
In labor and in labor's reward.
Grant this through Christ out Lord, amen.

-Book of Common Prayer
