PRAYER FOR LABOR DAY

Lord on this Labor Day,
we celebrate the work we do,
 and we thank You for the blessing of our jobs.
We ask for those seeking employment that
You guide them in their search for work.

We ask for guidance when we are confused.
We ask for patience when working through conflicts.
We ask for strength to complete each day.
We ask for rest when we are weary.

We ask that You be with those whose faces
we might never see but who work tirelessly
each day for the good of us all.

Amen

Many of us are enjoying  today spending time with family.  I sure am.  I've been very blessed to have some of my family together to celebrate this Labor Day Weekend.

Thankfully they do take the time to celebrate together.  I'm so blessed to have a family that enjoys spending time together.  

Like most they have an extra day off from work this weekend as Labor Day is an official holiday.  Three day weekends are wonderful.  

I'm sending best of wishes to you all today and hoping you have some time off to rest and relax and enjoy your families too!
