Northern Plains Anglican invited readers to write a prayer for commerce at the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.  This is one I did for my hometown.

Dear Lord,

We lift up the godly business people on Main Street and throughout Yazoo.  We pray that whatever work they do, they will do it all to the glory of God.  You have entrusted them with talents and with money.  Deliver them from the service of self alone.  May they serve the common good in their workplaces and throughout the community, working to establish Your kingdom in Yazoo.   May You be pleased by their faithfulness in what You have entrusted to them and prosper them greatly. Amen.

1 Corinthians 10:31b, Luke 19:11-27
