ICF Prayer Focus
Those who work in the retail industry
God of all things, we live in a society dominated by shopping, at times we sense it has taken the place for many, that once belonged to worship and commitment to your Church. Yet the sale and exchange of goods is a vial part of our communal existence, and the availability of fair-traded and organic products remind us that retailers too have their part to play in fulfilling the vision of your kingdom. So we give you thanks for all those whose labours provide us with the retail opportunities we have. Help us not to abuse those opportunities, and help those of us who work in the retail sector to undertake our task sensing the presence of the one who was no stranger to a carpenter’s shop. Through Christ our Lord AMEN
