On these three days before The Ascension, we continue to pray for the well being of that which helps sustain us. Yesterday we prayed for a fruitful harvest. Because almost none of us eat the fruit of own toil, we need commerce and industry to bring those harvest to us, and to pay a fair wage for doing so. Let us pray:
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
