A Prayer for Work

Job

Creator God, thank you for providing us with the gift to share our talents.
Provide our community, our nation, our world the fortitude to provide work for all which is decent and fair.
Make us faithful stewards of your creation to enhance the human dignity of our global family.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit now and forever.

Amen.

(From Being Neighbor: The Catechism and Social Justice, USCCB, April 1998)
