One Hour Prayer

PRAYER OF MY HOUR
FOR THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH

O God, I thank you for my work which provides for my needs.
All of my time is a gift from You.

I offer to you this hour of my work
for the mission of the Church.
Use this hour of my salary to continue to build your Kingdom.
May this hour which I give to the Church
enable my brothers and sisters
to feed the hungry,
clothe the naked,
visit the sick,
welcome back the sinner,
console the grieving,
and offer up the bread and wine for all of us
.May this hour of my work be joined to the work of the whole Church,
that together we may be the living sacrifice which sanctifies the world.

All glory, praise and honor be to you, O God,
forever and ever.

Amen.
