God has a special affection for those who work with their hands. In our modern times we can often take for granted the sweat and blood offered for the things we enjoy.
Father of Creation, by your hands the world was made.
By your breath came life in this world.
Nothing remains without your care.
May you bless those who labor.
Give them protection and strength,
and may they enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Give me a spirit of gratitude for their work.
If you know someone who works with their hands in construction, farming, electrics, plumbing, etc., offer them words of thanks today. Let them know their labor is appreciated.
