Lord God,
grant that in our work
we may deal fairly with one another.
Fairness is both of the giver and the receiver.

Give us the courage, as Jesus does,
to challenge unjust practices,
may we not walk by on the other side.

With the help of the Holy Spirit
may we have the grace to respect all,
whether in work, or seeking it.

We ask that all be given the opportunity
to support themselves
and their families by their efforts.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
