Let us offer our prayers to God, who pronounced all creation. God, who sent his Son to live and work as one like us, and who calls us to serve the poor and those oppressed. Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For all those who work:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For those who are unemployed or underemployed, or have lost their jobs because of changing economic conditions, let us pray:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For those who work in harzardous conditions without sufficient protection, let us pray:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For migrant workers and all who work the land, let us pray:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For all employers that they may seek to provide a just work environment:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For those who face discrimination, harassment, or abuse in the work place, let us pray:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

For those who must balance job committments with the needs of their families, let us pray:

Lord, give success to the work of our hands.

Loving God, through your Son you gave us an example to love one another as He loved us. Give us the strength to continue working to bring forth your kingdom here on earth – a kingdom of justice and peace, kindness and compassion, grace and mercy. Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen
