A few prayers for Labor Day

A Collect for Daily vocation:

Almighty God our heavenly Father, who declarest thy glory and showest forth thy handiwork in the heavens and in the earth: Deliver us, we beseech thee, in our various occupations from the service of self alone, that we may do the work which thou givest us to do in truth and beauty and for the common good; for the sake of him who came among us as one that serveth, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Collect for Labor Day:

Almighty God, who hast so linked our lives one with another that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good; and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are out of work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A blessed Sunday to one and all!  Here's hoping your Sunday is filled with the worship of Almighty God:

O Lord, we beseech thee mercifully to receive the prayers of 
thy people who call upon thee, and grant that they may both
perceive and know what things they ought to do, and also 
may have grace and power faithfully to fulfill the same; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with 
thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the
fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those
who harvest them. Make us, we beseech thee, faithful stewards
of thy great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and
the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of thy Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with
thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

May God's mercies be with all those who travel over the Thanksgiving holiday and May His holy Angels protect their paths.
