O God, who through human labor
never cease to protect and govern
the vast work of creation,
listen to the supplications of your people,
and grant that all men and women
may find work that befits their dignity,
joins them more closely to one another
and enables them to serve their neighbor.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
forever and ever. Amen.
