Heavenly Father, thank You for the joy of living in America . .
. for the opportunities it provides . . . for the good jobs that
most people have . . . for competition that makes us do a good job
. . . for the rewards of achievement . . . for the good benefits
that many people have. And God, I pray for those who do NOT have
jobs . . . for those who work without benefits . . . and for those
who have been thrown out of work. Help America to provide an increasing
number of jobs, and to provide for those who need a hand-up. In
Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Ephesians 1:11-12)
God, sometimes I feel like I'm not really needed. Others could get
along without me. I spend much of my time trying to be noticed.
God, forgive me, and help me to do my best where You have placed
me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 51:10-12)
O Holy Spirit, today I want to be united with You. Today, I want
to be perfectly resigned to You. Today, I would renounce everything
that separates me from You. Today, I would live for You and for
others. Today, I would work in an attitude of prayer for those with
whom I work. Today I would do my work for Your sake. In Jesus' name.

(Meditation: James 2:14-17)
God, the Giver of all, if a child of mine were hungry, I would do
something about it. May I have the same sensitivity today for the
hungry who are not my children. God of peace, if my children were
fighting, regardless of the right or wrong, I would try to get them
to stop. May I have courage to do the same when others at work are
at odds. God of love, if my children needed to talk with me, I would
listen. Help me to listen to those at work who need me. For we are
ALL Your children. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 9:1-2)
God, everything is going my way. I have success today, but should
I fail, help me to praise You still. My family is healthy today,
but when illness comes, help me to praise You still. God, may I
praise You every day, and in every circumstance. Through Jesus Christ,
my Lord. Amen
