A Labor Day Prayer

September 3, 2018

From the Archdiocese of Detroit, slightly adapted by yours truly —

O God, this weekend when we rest from our usual work, we pray for all who shoulder the tasks of human labor—in the marketplace, in factories and offices, in the professions, and in family living.

We thank you, Lord, for the gift and opportunity of work; may our efforts always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the glory of your name.

We lift up to you all who long for just employment and those who work to defend the rights and needs of workers everywhere.

May our working and our resting both give praise to you until the day we share together in eternal rest with all our departed in your Kingdom as you live and reign, Creator, Savior, and Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

— Stay safe! See you back here tomorrow.
