If you are one of the many that pray, try this one on Monday:
we celebrate the work we do,
and we thank You for the blessing of our jobs.
We ask for those seeking employment that
You guide them in their search for work.
We ask for guidance when we are confused.
We ask for patience when working through conflicts.
We ask for strength to complete each day.
We ask for rest when we are weary.
We ask that You be with those whose faces

each day for the good of us all.
evening comes, the busy world hushed, the fever of life
is over and our life's work is done.
Then, in Thy tender mercy, give us safe lodging, holy
rest and everlasting peace at your side for eternity.'
Lord on this Labor Day,
'Lord, support us all day long until shadows lengthen,
