Prayer: The Work of Our Hands

Here’s a prayer about employment from Michael Saward.  It was posted on The Jubilate Group website.

Prayer
(inspired by Ephesians 6: 5-9, 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-13)

Creator God, whose Son was a carpenter,
you have put within us the desire to be creative
through the thoughts of our brains
and the work of our hands.
Enable us so to order our society
that none may be denied the right
to work for a fair wage,
so that full employment and just relationships
may characterise the industries of our world.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
