"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

Prayer for daily work

O Lord our heavenly Father, by whose providence the duties of men are variously ordered: Grant to us all the spirit to labour heartily to do our work in our several stations, in serving one Master and looking for one reward. Teach us to put to good account whatever talents thou hast lent to us, and enable us to redeem our time by patience and zeal; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

From The Book of Common Prayer, 1962
