God loves us all - even on a Monday.

From Garfield to Geldof, everyone hates Mondays - but now help could be on hand from the Almighty.

A special selection of prayers has been published today by the Church of England to call for divine help banishing the Monday blues.

The collection, published on the Church's official website, range from the words of the hymn writer Charles Wesley to the thoughts of a curate from Catford, east London, on the trials and tribulations of commuting by train.

While the Church is more usually associated with prayers attempting to make sense of war, famine or life after death, the Rev Sheridan James's "Commuter's Prayer" concentrates on the experience of failing to get a seat on the train or being delayed in a tunnel.

The selection is aimed primarily at those faced with a depressing return to work from holiday, as thousands of Britons who took extended leave to coincide with last week's Bank Holiday weekend finally go back to the office.

"The selection is aimed at banishing the postholiday blues with God's help," a spokesman explained.

"We're showing that God's love isn't just a holiday romance."
