|Antique Postcard from my Personal Collection|
Labor Day Post Card Series No. 1, Circa 1909
Labor Day postcards are somewhat rare. I have a grand total of two that I have been able to locate for my collection. There is a another card from the series pictured above that I included in my post from Labor Day 2011. The companion card features Lady Liberty and if you are interested, you can read last year's post here.
I'd like to close this post with a prayer since a robust economy could make the world a better place for us all.
A Prayer for Workers
Prayer from United Church of Christ
Loving, Working God,
On this Sunday we ask your special blessing on all people who labor,
either for pay or as volunteers, in jobs or at school, in the workplace or at home,
in the U.S. and around the world.
We especially pray for your blessings on workers who do not have jobs
and for those whose inadequate pay does not allow them to live
the full life you intend for each of us.
Creator God, help us to build a new world in the midst of the old.
A world where all workers are valued.
A world where those who clean houses are also able to buy houses to live in.
A world where those who grow food can also afford to eat their fill.
We pray for the coming of a world where all workers everywhere
share in the abundance that you have given us.
We ask these things knowing that you give us the courage and strength
to live out our faith in the workplace and the marketplace, as well as in the sanctuary.
Until next time, live and love well.
