A Prayer for Friday, August 17, 2012


O God,

It takes a lot of people to make this world work; we depend on a lot of people to keep our lives functioning.

We want to thank you for the web of connectivity and dependence that exists in human society; cause us to stop and think about it from time to time so that we can express our gratitude both to you and to people.

Keep us mindful that some of the most necessary tasks are also some of the most thankless, some of the most laborious, some of the most tedious, and some of the least compensated.

Give us an attitude of gratefulness toward all of those on whom we depend.

Grant that we will appropriately treat our own role as important without over-valuing it when we compare it to the roles that others play.
