  Prayer for Labor Day  
 


Loving Father, on this weekend, when we rest from our usual labors, we pray for all who shoulder the

tasks of human labor— in the marketplace, in factories and offices, in the professions, and in family living.

We thank you, Lord, for the gift and opportunity of work; may our efforts

always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the glory of your name.

We lift up to you all who long for just employment and those who work to defend

the rights and needs of workers everywhere.

May those of us who are now retired
always remember the valuable contribution we make
to our Church and our world by our prayers and deeds of charity.

May our working and our resting give you praise
until the day we share together in eternal rest with all our departed in your kingdom
as you live and reign Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
