Anglican Church Asks God For Employment Counseling
The Church of England evidently cares as much for its members' livelihoods as much as their everliving souls.
The church published a prayer today to help comfort Britons who lose their jobs in the financial crisis.
“Hear me as I cry out in confusion, help me to think clearly, and calm my soul,” says the “Prayer On Being Made Redundant."
Because the Church of England is all about inclusion, the church also offered a prayer to comfort survivor guilt -- for those who still have their jobs but feel bad when colleagues are fired.
“Who will be next? How will I cope with the increased pressure of work?” asks the “Prayer For Those Remaining In The Workplace."
There's no word on whether the church has suggested intercessions for workers who hope to get fired or are praying that certain coworkers get the axe. You know who we're talking about.
As many as 600,000 Britons could lose their jobs this year, the government said last month. Unemployment in Britain now stands at 6 percent, which is still 0.7 percent less than in the U.S.
