Prayer before Work

Prayer before Work

O my God, I love you with my whole heart.
I desire to live only for your service and glory.

I offer you the work I am about to perform
in union with the intentions Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
had during life.

Deign to bless it and assist me
with the light and grace of your Holy Spirit.
