Confession: Those Who Labor

Here’s a prayer of confession for Labor Day from the Presbytery of the Cascades.

Prayer of Confession

Dear God, we ask your blessing on all those who labor,
who work to provide for themselves
and bring us the comforts we have come to expect. 
Bring humility to us when we build towers that touch the sky,
and are impressed by our own feats. 
Bring compassion to us when we forget those who work under unjust conditions. 
Bring grace to us when we are most in need of your healing touch.

Assurance of Pardon:
God watches over the weary, and grants grace to all. 
Hear the good news: in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.  Amen.
