Prayer for Vocations

Visions of Vocation common grace for the common good“God of heaven and earth, we pray for Your kingdom to come, of Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.  

Teach us to see our vocations and occupations as woven into Your work in the world this week.

For mothers at home who care for children, for those whose labour forms our common life in this city, the nation and the world, for those who serve the marketplace or ideas and commerce, for those whose creative gifts nourish us all, for those whose callings take them into the academy, for those who long for employment that satisfies their souls and serves you, for each one we pray, asking for your great mercy.

Give us eyes to see that our work is holy to You, O Lord, even as our worship this day is holy to You.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.” 

From Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good, by Steven Garber

About R.H. (Rusty) Foerger

As I enter the third third of life, I am becoming aware of the role of elders today “to enlarge spiritual vision, being devoted to prayer, living in the face of death, as a living curriculum of the Christian life” (Dr. James M. Houston). I am a life long and life wide learner who seeks to: *decipher the enigma of our worth *rescue from the agony of prayerlessness *integrate spiritual friendship.
