The Interfaith Worker Justice organization challenges us to remember workers in our prayers and especially as we celebrate holidays--many of which wouldn't be possible without the toil of their hands. The next three posts are prayers or litanies you can use as you reflect on and celebrate God's many blessings in your life.
A Prayer of Gratitude and Remembrance
God, we come together today to oer prayers of gratitude and remembrance.
We thank you for the gift of life, and remember those who are no longer with us.
We thank you for the company of family and friends, and remember those who cannot be with theirs.
We thank you for the wonderful meal before us, and remember those who toiled to make this celebration possible.
God, you have given us so much this year and the years before, and we pray that you bless us with the generosity to share what we have with those who have very little.
