Always guide and give us all
The strength and courage
To accept and perform
Our duties and responsibilities
In accordance to Thy holy will.
Let us face its hardships
With courage and dignity
To endure life
We are fighting for
And love the fruit of our labor
-that is success.
In all our dreams and actions
Until all our aspirations
And ambitions will unfold
Right in our very eyes.
This we ask
In the name of your Son
Our Lord Jesus Christ
We offer you this day our works,
Our hopes and struggles,
Our joys and sorrows.
Give us and all workers of the world
The grace to work as you did
So that everything we do
May benefit our fellowmen and
Glorify GOD, our Father.
Your Kingdom come
Into all factories, farms, offices and into our homes.
Give us this day our daily bread,
May we receive it without envy or injustice
May those of us who, today, may be in danger of sin
Remain in Your grace, and
May those who died in labor’s field of honor rest in peace.
Teach us to be generous,
To serve you as you deserve to be served,
To give without counting the cost,
To fight without minding the wounds,
To work and pray as our right and duty, and
To spend our life without expecting any return
Other than the conviction that
We are doing Your holy will.
