May my work…

May my work be the way

May it be my worship

May it be the growing of my heart and the connecting of my soul

May it be my reaching out and drawing in

May it lead me home

This post was written while on retreat at the zero carbon house, Balsall Heath, Birmingham looking at these golden hands by Jake Lever.

    Lovely prayer.
    As the monks of old had it “Laborare est orare”, to work is to pray.
    Maybe to play is to pray too?!

  2. Anne Booth says:

    That is lovely, Jo,, and really helpful for me. I feel really lost career wise, and don’t know what work it is God wants me to do, so I’m going to pray and meditate on that prayer every day. That is EXACTLY what I want my work to be.

    thank you! ‘Work is prayer’ can transform so much that seems futile

  4. Jo Ind says:

    Thank you John, Anne and Jane for your lovely comments.
    Yes taking that approach to work is indeed transforming.
    I’m a little overwhelmed by what you said Anne – what an honour.
    As for you John – your house says in bricks and mortar what happens when prayer, play and work come together.
