연합감리교회(United Methodist Church)는 모든 근로자를 위해 함께 기도합니다.
미국 내의 근로자들은 매년 9월 노동절을 기념합니다. 이 비디오를 통해 연합감리교회 모든 근로자들과 봉사자들 그리고 근로의 기회를 찾는 모든 분들을 연결하며 기도하기를 원합니다. 교회 주일학교, 예배 전 또는 후, 또는 여러분들 주위의 많은 분들과 이 영상을 공유하시기 바랍니다.
A Blessing for Workers and All Seeking Work
Blessed are you, ever-creating God,
in your image, our lives are made;
in your glory, we offer all the work of our hearts and hands and minds.
Blessed are you, O God, now and forever!
Blessed are you whose work is repaid,
for by your work, and by the payment you receive
your lives and the lives of others around you and around the world are blessed.
We thank God for you day by day.
Blessed are you whose work is unpaid,
who offer what you can to enrich the lives of others,
through time, talents, skill, strength, and love.
We praise God for your generous labor!
Blessed are you who seek work but have not found it,
or whose work now is not yet what it may be
yet still you seek, that your gifts may be shared more fully.
We praise God for your diligent seeking and pray you may soon find!
Yours is the glory in their labors.
Yours be the glory in all our lives, in Jesus' name. Amen.
