Being Myself
A prayer which remembers that we are called to be people at work, not just perform functions

God and Father of all humanity
What I bring to my job
More than anything else
Is the person I am
Perceived and created by You
Before ever I came to be.

Help me engage in my daily endeavours
Not simply as a task to be done
A process to be completed
A regulation to be satisfied
Or a deal to be made

But as a means through which
I express something of myself,
And embrace the humanity
Of all who I encounter in the task

Through work may I become more human
And never make others less
Through work may I learn and celebrate
All that it means to be made in Your image;
Whose creation I am
And whose purpose I am called to continue.
