O God, your unfailing providence sustains the world we live in and the life we live: Watch over those, both night and day, who work while others sleep, and grant that we may never forget that our common life depends upon each other’s toil; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP 134)
This prayer from Compline seems fitting as I prepare to travel today.
I am grateful for all whose work (especially on nights, weekends, and holidays) enables me to do the work I am called to do and gives me freedom to relax and rejuvenate with my family.
This interdependence is worth giving thanks for every day (or every night).
