Item Description...
On-the-Job Prayers is for people who go to work every day, whether in an office, factory or at home, with the resources of the Christian faith: a belief in God who creates, in Jesus Christ who redeems, and in the Holy Spirit who guides. It stands out from the growing number of books on the spirituality of work movement in that it is not so much about the spirituality of work as that it invites readers to practice the spirituality of work through prayer on the job. Each prayer session includes a Scripture text to help readers focus, a reading from a variety of thinkers and writers, and concludes with a workplace prayer-many written especially for On-the-Job Prayers. Readings come from people like Rudolph Giuliani, Reinhold Neibuhr, Florence Henderson and Martin Luther King, Jr. The book also includes three helpful indexes: Source Index, Scripture Index, and Subject Index.

Publishers Description
On-the-Job Prayers contains 101 prayers designed for those who work. Whether readers are blue collar or white collar, manual labor workers or highly paid professionals, this book will offer wisdom, comfort and guidance. Each prayer begins with an inspirational quote from Scripture. This is followed by a reflection on topics such as ?Finding Time to Pray, ? ?Handling Stress, ? and ?Corporate Soul? by people like Rudolph Giuliani, Florence Henderson and Thomas Moore. Finally, a ?Workplace Prayer? by William David Thompson concludes each on-the-jo & prayer. This format provides readers with a complete reflection and prayer on particular issues related to work, helping them find a spiritual center on the job.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Making the World Function  Mar 23, 2006
In his introduction, Thompson, a retired pastor, offers a variety of definitions of "work," the most encompassing being "what we do to make the world function." The major part of our time and energy is spent in our particular workplaces, and it is in those places we may rely on God to listen, forgive, encourage, and empower us. In the "work" of writing this book, Thompson has provided useful tools in the form of scripture, reflections, and prayers that will help us meet the challenges and celebrate the successes of our workplace.

The author suggests that we set aside a specific time each day, preferably before starting work, to consider and pray about our jobs. Some will visit the 101 prayer pages sequentially; others may choose topics from the source, scripture, or subject index. Let's say things at work (whether outside or inside the home) are chaotic. Topic 5, The Workers' Twenty-Third Psalm, contains verses 1-3 and an edited version beginning "The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want. He gives me peace when chaos is all around me." The accompanying workplace prayer acknowledges God's peace as greater than the surrounding chaos, and expresses faith and hope: "You know what I face at work today...and you promise to be with me in every discussion, decision and difficult task."

Thompson has produced a resource that can help all of us find and keep God in our daily efforts to make the world function.
Fortitude!  Feb 1, 2006
The globe seems to be getting larger and spinning faster, and "work" can be unfulfilling and anxiety-provoking because of it. Solace and refreshment are here (see Hope for a Better World, prayer 64). On-the-Job Prayers provide courage for each day's journey, and helps to bridge the gaps.

For the lucky minority who find joy in the job they do, have spirited workplaces with enlightened management, or don't feel threatened by workers on the other side of the globe, this wonderful little volume reminds us, above all, to be grateful for the calling we know as "work".
