Let Us Confess to God Those Things That Are Wrong in Our Work (Prayer)Prayer / Produced by partner of TOW
Let us confess to God those things that are wrong in our work:
That the presence of God at work is often overlooked;
That creative people are often subjected to long, boring and unrelenting routines;
That skills are undeveloped through lack of training;
That resources are wasted in shoddy work and the production of unwanted goods;
That the maximisation of profit often excludes concern for people;
That men and women are discriminated against because of age, race, gender, disability, lack of skill and length of employment;
That the poor stand so little chance against the power of the rich, and the world's destitute are forgotten.
Lord, have mercy upon us. Forgive us our sins and help us to amend our lives. Amen.
