Prayer for Employment


You govern your creation, O God, and bring it to perfection by the work of our hands.

Hear the prayers of your people who ask for work that will enhance their human dignity and promote the upbuilding of your kingdom.

Enable them to provide for those confided to their care either by family ties or by charity we owe to one another for the betterment of human life.

We ask this blessing in the name of Jesus who laboured with his own hands while he lived on earth.
