Day 2: Praying for His Work
Dear Lord, please bless the work of my husband’s hands and reward him for his efforts (Prov 12:14). Please make his efforts successful! (Psalm 90:17) I pray that you give him wisdom and guidance and direct his steps. Show him the good works you have prepared in advance for him to do, and then help him do them! (Eph 2:20) Whatever you have given him to do, I pray that he does it with all his might (Ecc 9:10). Teach him when to work and when to rest. I ask that he would delight in your law, thinking on it day and night, so that he wouldn’t grow weary, but would prosper in all that he does. (Ps 1:2-3)
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
I Thessalonians 4:11-12
All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
My heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor.
Are you taking the challenge? Let us know that you're all in!
