For America's Laborers And The Secretary That Will Represent Them

For wisdom and discernment in the selection of the Secretary of Labor, that those who need jobs will be enabled to get them and that our nation’s workplaces will be kept safe

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
—Colossians 3:23

Oh Holy God, in Your wisdom and kindness, You made us with the need to work! Thank You for the blessing of toil and the fulfillment it brings. Whether we labor with our hands, our hearts or our minds, O Lord, we labor unto You for You are the ultimate One to whom all glory is due.

Ours is a nation of workers, Lord. I ask You today to bless the laborers in our country by raising up a gifted and godly person to serve as Secretary of Labor. May You designate for the new administration the ideal one to give their gifts and talents in this way. In Your powerful name, amen.

This is the latest in the series of prayers led by the Presidential Prayer Team for the new President and for our nation. If you are interested in receiving the email with each day's prayer assignment you can click here and sign up.
