Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth,
Thank you for the gift of work,
For education, skill, and opportunity
Thank you for the chance to join you
In providing for our needs and needs of others
Thank you for the satisfaction of fruitfulness
For purpose and accomplishment
And thank you for making us more than our work
For making every person in your image
For securing our worth in your love and grace
not in what we can acquire or produce
Bless and protect ___________ as she/he looks for work
Guard her/him from discouragement and discrimination
Relieve her/him of worry and anxiety
Meet her/his needs for hearth and home and health
Come quickly with a fulfilling job with a trustworthy employer
We ask all this in the strong name of Jesus,
the Carpenter of Nazareth,
the Rabbi of Galilee,
Our Friend and Savior forever, Amen.
