A prayer for Labor Day:
Almighty God, who hast so linked our lives one with another 
that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide 
us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but 
for the common good; and, as we seek a proper return for
our own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of 
other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are out
of work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and 
reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and 
ever. Amen. -- Collect for Labor Day, Book of Common Prayer
