A Prayer for Human Resource Professionals

A prayer for the Human Resource professionals of the Adjutant General Corps

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! When I look at the heavens and consider the vastness of the universe you have made — what are human beings, that you think of them; mere mortals, that you care for them? Yet you made them little less than angels, and crowned them with glory and honor.

Our God, indeed what a precious resource are human beings, that you would entrust their lives to us. We are truly grateful for outstanding work of the men and women of the Adjutant General Corps whom we honor today. Their faithful service sustains the daily life of our Soldiers – their careers, their livelihoods, their ability to provide for their families and even their hopes for the future – and their work lays the foundation for our strong Army teams. Through their example of excellence, inspire us all to do our best for the men and women whose well-being depends on us. Give us eyes always to see the men and women we serve as human treasures to be prized, and not just as tools to be used. Empower us to be faithful stewards of all that you place in our care, for the good of all those made in your image. In your name I pray, Amen.
