*These could serve as a template for making your own congregational/worker acrostics!  Encourage your members to contemplate the Spirit’s work in their working lives and write an acrostic blessing or prayer to use for their week of work. These can change week by week and are great for all ages*

Let us walk in step with the Spirit

As we begin this day.

Because of God’s Spirit

Our love and our labor are

Rededicated and renewed.

Whatever comes,

Our hope is in You.

Rooted and established in love,

Singing, praying, working, loving,

Help comes from You.

In You we find refuge and strength.

‘Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God

forever and ever. Amen!”
