A prayer for labor day

Creative God,

Meaningful work is a gift from you: a chance to give of our energy and talents to bless others, a chance to provide for our families, a chance to change the world.

And rest is also a gift from you: a chance to stop and notice that the world continues to move without our effort, a chance to experience joy in recreation, a chance to savor relationship.

Today, God, we stop. We rest. We play. We create. Today, we imitate your character and rejoice in the truth that You are God and we are not.

Amen.
