On this Labor Day, we thank You
for the talents you have bestowed upon us
and for the gift to share them through work.
Smile upon those who are unemployed or underemployed.
Provide guidance and encouragement
for all those seeking employment.
Grant that they may find meaningful, rewarding work.
Be with those who work tirelessly for the good of all.
Protect them and grant them peace in their endeavors.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit now and forever.
