We Are Here to Thank God for the Value our Businesses and Work Create (Prayer)
Human enterprise is not simply an end in itself; it is the means and medium through which people fulfil their ultimate destiny. We are here today to give thanks to God for all that commerce and industry mean to us, our town, our economy and our lives.
We thank God for the value that our businesses and our work create, which can secure the public services we and our families need.
We thank God for our colleagues; their competence, capacity, commitment and comradeship. We pray to God that we will be able to meet adequately the responsibilities and obligations of management.
This we do in the name of him who taught us that to lead is to serve, and whose service is perfect freedom.
