You govern your creation, O God,
and bring it to perfection by the work of our hands.
Hear the prayers
of your people who ask for work
enhance their human dignity
and promote the upbuilding of your kingdom.
Enable them to provide for those confided to their care
either by family
ties or by charity we owe to one another
for the betterment of human life.
We ask this blessing
in the name of Jesus
who laboured with his own hands while he lived on earth.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
