Work as Vocation
A prayer which explores work as our worship
Creator of all things
The foundation and purpose of everything
Is ultimately to be found in You
Inspire us with that truth
When work is routine and repetitive
As well as exciting and innovative.
When tasks are difficult and frustrating
As well as satisfying and fulfilling.
In a world that offers so many rewards
And fuels a multitude of ambitions
Help me to look to you
To define my purpose
And to offer my toil and endeavour in its pursuit.
May your presence within me
The faith that I cherish
And the values I pursue
Enrich the working lives of everyone I encounter
As I offer the whole of my life
In living sacrifice to You
