Lord, Jesus Christ, Carpenter of Nazareth, You were a worker as I am. Give me, and all workers, the privilege To work as You did, so that everything we do will be to the greater glory of God, and the benefit of our fellow men. May Your kingdom come into our offices, our factories and shops, into our homes and into our streets. Give us this day a living wage, so that we may be able to keep Your law. May we earn it without envy or injustice. To us who labor and are heavily burdened, send speedily the refreshment of Your love. May we never sin against You. Show us Your way to work, and when our work here is done, may we, with all our fellow workers, rest in peace. Amen.
