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 prayerâ€”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.
