My name is Michael Waddell and I work with CBM.
Over the past couple of weeks during Prayerline, my colleagues have invited you to pray for all things ‘work’, or more specifically, for work, and for workers. Today I want to ask you to pray for workplaces.
I’m here in my brother Jeff’s warehouse, and as you can see, he sells windows and doors for the residential housing market. As you might expect, his work is in full swing right now as homeowners and building contractors take full advantage of the summer months to get their building projects complete.
So, as I’m here in the workplace representative of workplaces all around the world, I’d like to invite you to pray for places of work here in Canada and around the world. Workplaces, in all their many sizes and forms, provide people with space to do their work, producing products and providing services that contribute to the flourishing of individuals, families, and communities.
We’re thankful today, for people of faith who enter workplaces, whether as business owners, employees, clients, or customers, attentive to the fact that, in that place of work, they can participate in God’s redeeming work for all creation.
