This is the audio from the September 8, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Acts 20:35 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus is about knowing the gift of work. God’s desire is that we would learn to enjoy both the fruit of our labor and the gift of having work that we can do. While sin brought with it great hardship and toil, God had given Adam and Eve the work of caring for the garden, and enjoying its bounty, prior to sin coming into the world.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you see work as a gift rather than a curse. Pray that you would live with an awareness of how God wants your work to help others. Pray that your work would be a blessing to you as it allows you to give to those in need.
