September Prayer of the Month ~


Almighty and Generous God, we thank you for this day and your presence in it. 

We lift up our youth as they go back to school and the teachers who guide them. 

In the month where we celebrate Labor Day,

we also lift up all who contribute to our society,

especially those who struggle to make a living wage. 

Help us to love others as you love us each and every day. 

We proclaim we are made in your image,

the universe and world are yours, and your kingdom is just. 

In Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
