On ending apprenticeship and beginning paid work.
Almighty Father,—
I am about to enter upon a trade,
which will fill all my time.
Grant me strength to do my work
cheerfully and thoroughly,
so that my employer may be satisfied with me,
and that I may derive self-respect
from my efforts to be useful.
Help me to be sweet-tempered
with my new companions,
eager and ready to please.
Almighty Father,
in the hurry and bustle of my everyday life,
let me always find time
to spend a few moments
in communion with Thee,
for a prayer, however short,
will be pleasing unto Thee,
if spoken with a humble spirit
and a trusting heart.
Help me always to remember
how hard my parents have worked
for my sake,
and let me never grudge them
the little help which my work
may afford them.
O Lord,
make me understand that my conduct
does not affect myself alone.
If I am steadfast, brave, truthful,
gentle, and honourable,
my reward will be shared
by all my brethren of the House of Israel.
If I am cowardly, dishonest,
untruthful and bold,
shame will descend on all my race.
O God,
do Thou lead me for ever!
For God shall bring every work into judgment,
whether it be good or whether it be evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14)
Whatever thy hand findeth to do,
do it with all thy might. (Ecclesiastes 9:10)
