unite my work

Water_drop_001

Lord, In union with your love,
Unite my work with your great work, and perfect it.
As a drop of water poured into a river
   is taken up into the activities of the river,
   so may my labor become part of your work.
Thus may those among whom I live and work
   be drawn to your love.

Gertrude the Great of Helfta, 1254 – 1302, German Benedictine, mystic, and theologian

For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them.
