God of heaven and earth, you promise to make your blessings known as far as the curse is found. We pray for that, and we live for that. In our vocations and occupations, give us the wisdom and grace and skill to keep on keeping on, that the work of our hands will be integral to that blessing in the worlds of business and banking, politics and the arts, education and the law, health care and international development, at home and all over the world– as far as the curse is found. Amen and amen.
“…Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go, My daily labour to pursue; Thee, only thee, resolved to know, In all I think, or speak, or do. The task thy wisdom hath assigned, O let me cheerfully fulfil; In all my works thy presence find, And prove thine acceptable will…”
“Forth in They Name, O Lord”
