Today’s Prayer 09 02 13
I am totally inspired today, God, by friends I am blessed to witness who embrace their life’s work. Joyfully laboring to make our world a better place, radiating the love of a well lived life.
A farmer who grows the seeds that makes it possible to have more green, and a teacher’s aid who works with children who struggle, a trucker who hauls produce to people who can’t grow it, a writer who explains how to use hard-to-use tools, a carpenter who builds a better place to live, a coffee shop manager who makes sure there is hot coffee , a choreographer who delights us in how magnificent our body instrument is, and a minister who consoles and inspires us with the message that your love is for everyone and everyone belongs in this world….
Thank you for the gift of community.
Help us remember those who are struggling to find life sustaining work, receive fair compensation, work under humane conditions — let us pray for their continued hope and perseverance. Help us to create work so that all in this world may thrive.
May all our life’s work benefit your creation as we are co-creators of your world filled with peace and plenty for everyone.
