Daily Prayer - A Worker's Prayer

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.
