Divine Stylist of Creation,
For the cuts and colors by our stylists and barbers, we give our gratitude. Their clips and foils, manicures and braids bring a sense of warmth to the lives of their clients.
Bless the work of their hands as they give the care others seek. Bless their own hands as they trim and color, wax and shave. May their hands hold up in this repetitive work. Protect their fingers, wrists, arms, and backs as they clip and stand for hours to care for their neighbors.
For the times they listen to our life stories and work hard to give us the result we desire, we celebrate. May these caregivers find the energy they need to continue in their careers joyfully.
This is part of a series of Lenten daily prayers for various careers.
