Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:
God Your Word says, “A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.” I pray today that I not be found pursuing worthless things as You look upon my life to find the glory that belongs to You. Let all of my dealings with others be on the up and up, for Your Word tells me that, “Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.”
How joyful are those who fear the Lord—all who follow Your ways! I will enjoy the fruit of my labor. How joyful and prosperous I will be!
Lord, I choose to make it my goal to live a quiet life, minding my own business and working with my hands, just as instructed. Then people who are not believers will respect the way I live, and I will not need to depend on others. Let my life be a living example to others on how they should live and how they can live when they put their total trust in the great God who sits high but looks low.
Whether I have a lot or I have only just enough, You are the God who takes care of me and will supply all my needs from Your glorious riches, which have been given to me in Christ Jesus. Recalling Your goodness in this manner keeps me on the straight and narrow path making sure that my labor not be in vain.
For God is working in me, giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases him. This is how I will remain faithful and not allow my labor to be in vain. Thank You for Your great plan of victory.
This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.
