patron saint of laborers, pray for us as we labor,
that we may have strength as we fight this good fight each & every day!

This day—the feast day of Saint James the Greater (brother of Saint John the Evangelist)—has come to have added meaning for me & The Way to Nourish for Life [see related post: “The Way Matters!“] so I didn’t want to let this day leave me without saying a special prayer.
And though I have been a bit more quiet lately, during these past 66 days, the Lord has been guiding me through a deepening desire to better understand & follow His Will through this journey of mine, in all matters—for sake of body, mind, and soul. Still, much more to talk about (and do!). So let us pray…Prayer to Saint James the Apostle (by Scott P. Richert):
“O glorious Apostle, St. James,
who by reason of thy fervent and generous heart
was chosen by Jesus to be a witness of His glory on Mount Tabor,
and of His agony in Gethsemane;
thou, whose very name is a symbol of warfare and victory:
obtain for us strength and consolation in the unending warfare of this life,
that, having constantly and generously followed Jesus,
we may be victors in the strife and deserve to receive the victor’s crown in heaven. Amen.“
