Thank You for Those Who Value Unpaid Work (Prayer)Prayer / Produced by partner of TOW
Thank you, Lord, that you turn the values of the world on their head. What people call great, so often in your eyes is little, or mean. In what many call little, you see greatness, and eternal value. Thank you for people involved in looking again at what work is, what it means to be creative and how we can make a difference in the world, in our neighbourhood, in our families - without necessarily getting paid for it.
Especially we pray for retired people and those bringing up families at home.
We give you thanks for all the creative projects that have been set up to help the unemployed....
We give you thanks for all who have seized the chance to do some worthwhile and creative work while they have waited for a paid job. Amen.
