Shining model for all workers,
Obtain for me your vision of work.
Help me to keep in mind
That my work is my collaboration with my Creator in his ongoing creation.
Make me see obstructions and problems
As challenges to be met
And opportunities to be seized
That God’s creation may reach its destined goal.
Help me to harness all my resourcefulness
To the successful completion of the tasks that have fallen to my share in God’s creative work.
Teach method in my work;
Teach me patience in my work.
Teach me to cooperate with others in my work;
Inspire me to fight down the evil forces
which if unchecked can obstruct the plan of God
To build a beautiful world
For his children to live in and enjoy. Amen.
