Prayer by the Reverend David Schnasa Jacobsen, who worked in United Methodist congregations until 1996 and served as Editorial Assistant to The United Methodist Book of Worship Project, but who has taught Homiletics at Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada seminaries (mostly Waterloo Theological Seminary, Ontario) since 1996; his CV lists him as attending St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Kitchener, Ontario

His CV:


O God of the vineyard,

you call us all to productive labor,

to employ our gifts and talents for you.

We pray for those who are unemployed.

Strengthen them in this difficult hour,

uplift their spirits,

and grant them a place among your laborers

until all be employed for the common good,

and we share fully in our true work

of praising you with heart and mind and soul forever.  Amen.
