As we look at our homes, workplaces, and places of worship, we give gratitude for the ones who have placed brick upon brick. Engineers, architects, designers, and project managers brought forth dreams on paper. Construction workers and contractors work to make these visions into reality.
From crafting the frame of our buildings to plastering walls, their weathered hands and perspired foreheads show their dedication to their profession. Through their expertise, structures stand on solid foundation. Through their experience, roofs protect from nature’s wrath.
With gratefulness, we celebrate their calling.
Keep them safe as they continue to build towards the sky. May they feel your peace as their work reaches for the clouds.
This is part of a series of Lenten daily prayers for various careers. The list was determined by St. Paul UCC, Belleville, IL.
