Prayers around Work and Redundancy

from the CofE website

Prayer for those remaining in the workplace

Life has changed:
colleagues have gone – redundant, out of work.
Suddenly, what seemed so secure is now so very fragile.

It’s hard to know what I feel:
sadness, certainly,
guilt, almost, at still having a job to go to,
and fear of the future:
who will be next?
how will I cope with the increased pressure of work?

Lord Jesus, in the midst of this uncertainty, help me to keep going:
to work to the best of my ability,
taking each day at a time,
and taking time each day to walk with you

for you are the way, the truth and the life. Amen.

other prayers on the site cover redundancy, debt, the new year, and world events. There's even one for working out your household budget. Ht Ruth Gledhill

On the same topic, there is a one-day conference coming up next week: 'The Church, Economic Uncertainty and the South-West', happening in Taunton on 13th Jan. Here are the details and booking info.
