Prayer: For the blessing of Monday


For the blessing of Monday, Lord, we give you thanks,
A new week to join the working ranks,
Another chance for gospel lamps to shine,
While on this day the pagans complain and whine.

What joy you give to know our labor’s fruit,
Whether we wear a pair of jeans or a suit;
Created in your image, we, like you,
Seek to bless with good in all we do.

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
