September 2, 2018 – A Labor Day Meditation
As we start this weekend and enjoy one last cookout or trip or the beginning of the football watching, let us stop for a moment to be thankful and remember. So I offer this prayer.
May you have a blessed Labor Day weekend and know that the love of God is always near.
Labor Day Prayer
O Lord, we praise you for all who labor for the common good and for those whose service is unappreciated.
We thank you for children whose play is the work of learning to live in the world.
We thank you for disciples who are obedient to the promptings of your Spirit in all their relationships.
We thank you for your yearning mercy that waits for us to make all our hours and days participation in your healing and blessing of the earth and all peoples.
