Intercessions for Work

Dear Lord,
O Lord, let us pray that as we come to work we remember to honour, love and respect the presence of God within ourselves and each person we meet and serve. We ask this in your name. Amen

Pause for thought

Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts. Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870)

Prayer for the Day

Eternal God, who is the light of the minds who know you,
The joy of the hearts that love you,
And the strength of those who serve you:
Grant us to know you that we may truly love you,
And so love you we may fully serve you,
Whom to serve Is perfect freedom.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
St Augustine of Hippo (354 – 430)
