Litany of Labor for Labor Day Weekend

Pastor: Let us pray to the Lord of all creation, from whom comes life and work and purpose. Almighty God, when you formed us lovingly out of the dust of the earth, you breathed into us the breath of life and gave us work and purpose for living.

People: You placed Adam in the garden of Eden to care for it.

Pastor: Through our work, you made us co-creators with you, shaping the world in which we live.

People: You gave dignity to our labor by sending your Son to labor with us.

Pastor: By our labor, you enrich the world.

People: By our labor, we enjoy the fruits of creation.

Pastor: By our labor, we find direction and purpose.

People: By our labor, our families are made secure.

Pastor: For providing varieties of work and for blessing us by our labor.

People: We give you thanks, O Lord.

Pastor: You bless us all with skills and gifts for labor.

People: You provide us opportunities to use them, for the benefit of others as well as ourselves.

Pastor: Guard and protect those who labor in the world.

People: Bless the work of our hands, O Lord.

Pastor: Look kindly upon the unemployed and the disabled.

People: Give health to the sick, hope to the bereaved.

Pastor: Keep us from laboring only for greed.

People: Make us loving and responsible in all that we do.

Pastor: Creator Lord, you are the source of all wisdom and purpose, you are the blessing of those who labor. Be with us in our labor to guide and govern our world. Give all men and women work that enhances human dignity and bonds us to one another. Give us pride in our work, a fair return for our labor, and joy in knowing that our work finds its source in you; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

All: People: Bless the work of our hands, O Lord. Amen
