Collect for Labor Day.

I couldn't find a Labor Day collect in the usual resources, so I wrote this one:


Gracious God:
we pray for the work we do
and for all those who work for a living.
Let us know that each one of us
has a calling from you,
and is gifted with skills and abilities
to contribute to the common good.
Bless those who do for us the necessary work
that we don’t want to do.
Be with those who cannot find work
and lead them to that place
where their gifts are valued.
Let all workers be fully compensated for what they do.
And may all we do be done to glorify you.
Amen.
