Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another
that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives:
so guide us in the work we do,
that we may do it not for ourselves alone,
but for the common good;
and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor,
make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers,
and arouse our concern for those who are out of work;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
The Complete Book of Christian Prayer, slightly modified
As we pray to our God and Father about you, we think of your faithful work, your loving deeds, and the enduring hope you have because of our Lord Jesus Christ.
