21st Century Prophets
A prayer that explores how God can speak through our engagement with the world of work.

God at whose word
The whole of creation came into being,
Speak Your word through me this day
As I pursue its endeavours.

I offer every task,
And pray that in Your purpose
It might become the means by which
New light and truth are known;

And in ways unseen,
And ways made clear,
Let Your Gospel purpose
Be fulfilled in their fulfilling.

And so may Wisdom's voice
Echo again in places and language
Where she has too long been silent;
Not only through those
Who wrestle with truths long-written
But also the research and discovery;
Success and failure;
Acheivements and disappointments;
Solutions and challenges
Of that which we choose to call
Our daily work
