Let us pray

O GOD, “Who has bid us labor for our daily bread, look graciously upon us Your servants. Help us to be diligent at our work, to be honest and true in everything. Help us to resist every temptation, to watch over our thoughts, words, deeds, and tempers. Give Your blessing to each member of this Family. (Protect and bless the Father in his daily work, be with and guide the Mother in her cares at home, guard and keep each child whether at school or at work or yet at home), and keep us all good and pure; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Offer, O Lord Jesus Christ, to direct and prosper the labors of Your Ministers who either at home or abroad are seeking to gather Your sheep into Your fold the Church. Strengthen them for their work. Grant that they may bring many souls to You, and glorify You Who is the Good Shepherd of all.

Into Your hands, O God, we commit ourselves this day. Be with us through this day even to its close. May we remember that Your eye is upon us, that You see all we do, knows all we think, and cares for our joys and sorrows. Look in tender love upon each of us, and keep us safe unto the end; for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
