On-the-Job Prayers is for people who go to work every day, whether in an office, factory or at home. It is not so much about the spirituality of work as it invites readers to practice the spirituality of work through prayer on the job.The workplace is where most of us spend the major part of our lives, in both time and energy, but many of us have trouble experiencing our work as a holy and fulfilling activity. Inspired by the belief that God is everywhere, this is the workplace prayer book that we have been waiting for—practical, concise and effective. It helps us return to work with a renewed awareness that our work and how we do it has real meaning in the greater scheme of things.Each prayer session includes a Scripture text, continues with a reading from a variety of thinkers and writers, and concludes with a workplace prayer. Readings come from people like Rudolph Giuliani, Reinhold Neibuhr, Florence Henderson, and Martin Luther King, Jr. The book also includes three helpful indexes: by source, Scripture reference, and subject.
