Lord, we come to you before we begin our day’s work.
We ask you to bless this day. 
May we find whatever is good in the tasks we are set 
and the time that we share.
Help us when we find some things too hard to understand. 
Teach us to be fair and generous with one another 
so may we thank you for a day well spent. Amen.
