A Prayer for Our Day's Work

O God, who hast ordained that whatever is to be desired, should be sought by labor, and who, by thy blessing, bringest honest labor to good effect: Look with mercy upon all our work, studies, and endeavors. Grant us, O Lord, to design only what is lawful and right; afford us calmness of mind, and steadiness of purpose, that we may so do thy will in this short life, as to obtain happiness in the world to come; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 from The Methodist Book of Worship for Church and Home, 1965
