Those who work in textile and material manufacture
Lord God, fabric is such an everyday thing, that we can forget the complex and varied processes that bring it into being. The tiny silkworm patiently spinning its cocoon; the crop of cotton awaiting its harvest; each a reminder of Your faithful presence in creation and our dependence on You. The scientist discovering new forms of thread unpacks and re-combines substances and elements that are of Your making. And each roll of cloth knits and weaves a thousand tiny threads reminding us of that greater whole of which our life and being is a part. So Lord God as we give you thanks for all those people whose labours provide us with the comfort, protection and pleasure of so many types of cloth, may they find fulfilment in all that they do and may we place true value on their endeavours. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
