I want to work, I need to work;
to support my family;
to feel valued by those around me;
to restore my sense of dignity, my self-esteem.
The Scriptures I have read, Lord, tell me
"to eat from the fruit of the labour of my hands"
and "anoint me with the dignity of work."
Help me remove the barriers that prevent me from working.
Include me in the work of your creation.
Prayer: Trevor Stockton/CAFOD
