Thank you for Friday

Food CourtGreat God,

For many, this day signals the end of a work week and the beginning of a break.  And, if we are honest, we are so very grateful when it arrives.

But we ask that you would help us to remember that the majority of people around this globe have no weekend.  They get no satisfaction from this day of the week.

And so we pray for those who provide services to the rest.  We pray for those who labor without breaks in their week, simply to feed their families.  We offer grace to those who do not know a day of rest.

As we take for granted our ease, may we be constantly reminded of those who do not enjoy this same luxury.
