Prayer for September 5: Please pray with me. God who labors, today we pray for all who labor and toil. Bless their work and keep them safe. Remind us that our vocation goes beyond the work that we do. We aren’t just laborers Lord, we are called. Our vocation is to be your hands and feet for all around us in the various roles that we carry through life. On this Labor Day in the USA, we thank you for the ability to work. We thank you for a day to rest from our labors. We thank you for the jobs that we have. And we pray for all those who labor today, who are without employment yet seek it, who are underemployed. Grant them what they seek Lord, if it be your will. Amen.
