Prayer by Chaplain Svoboda:
in whom all goodness dwells,
of whom all love comes,
and by whom all the joys of this world
came into being:
Be with us here today
to remind us of the big picture.
Help us to see
the goodness that can come from our work,
help us to work

and then help us to embrace
the joy of a job well done.
In Your Name we pray.
