O Lord, my God,
Creator and Ruler of the universe,
it is Your Will
that human beings accept the duty
May the work I do bring growth in this life
and those I love and help to extend the Kingdom of Christ.
Give all persons work that draws them to You
and to each other in cheerful service.
I unite all my work with the Sacrifice
in the Mass
that it may be pleasing to You and give You glory.
I beg Your Blessing
upon all my efforts.
With Saint Joseph
as my example and guide,
help me to do the work You have asked
and come to the reward You have prepared.
