Written by Heath Carter from Princeton Theological Seminary

Oh God

Who casts the mighty from their thrones,

Lift up the lowly.

Send your Spirit to migrant workers,

To casino servers and hotel staff,

To Instacart shoppers and Uber drivers,

To dishwashers and call center operators,

To gas station attendants and teacher’s assistants,

To those who rely on tips to pay their bills

And to all whose vital contributions

Make the world go round.

May their paychecks and benefits

Reflect that they are essential workers indeed,

And may they live with boldness

Springing from your conviction that

Truly, the laborers are worthy of their hire.

Amen.
