A prayer for Labor Day


This is Labor Day in the United States, and The Book of Common Prayer includes a short prayer to be said on this holiday. Many Christians today will join us in praying the following:


Almightly 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 self 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; though Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
