Workers’ Prayer

Workers’ Prayer

It is the season of abundance, but how many of us give much thought to the people who grow and harvest the food that sustains us? This powerful prayer is a call to action for justice and world change, not just for farm workers, but for workers everywhere. If you work, or know a worker, this prayer will speak to you.

Workers’ Prayer

Show me the suffering of the most miserable, so I may know my people’s plight.
Free me to pray for others, for you are present in every person.
Help me to take responsibility for my own life, so that I can be free at last.
Grant me courage to serve others, for in service there is true life.
Give me honesty and patience, so that I can work with other workers.
Bring forth song and celebration, so that the Spirit will be alive among us.
Let the Spirit flourish and grow, so that we will never tire of the struggle.
Let us remember those who have died for justice, for they have given us life.
Help us love even those who hate us, so we can change the world.
