A Prayer from In His Name:
O’ Loving Father, we come today as
millions of this nation’s workers are idle in
the market places with no means of

mankind shall work for their daily bread.
Father, touch them that they are also
commanded to love thy neighbor as

Lord, that the stones which the builders
reject, the workers who are replaced,
discharged or forced in retirement “may

Mastery, help them to know that what
they do unto the least of Your children they
do unto You, Father, we need Your help for

kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the

In the Name of Jesus, the Christ, Amen.
