These are seven of many verses about “WORK”. As we celebrate this Labor Day, let us be joyful about our works. Lets us work harder in our churches, in our jobs, in our marriages, in our families, in our relationships, in our homes, and for GOD’S KINGDOM… Help us to work for You Oh Lord in all we do and let us prosper. Help us to sing praises as we work and let us be joyful in all our works. Help us to change the way we think and feel about our works. Help us not to be lazy but go the extra mile. Lord, I praise you for my church works, my job, my marriage, my kids, my housework, my yard work, and my work for YOUR KINGDOM. Let me be a hard worker and not lazy. Let me work hard and sleep well. Help me to be enthusiastic about my work. Help me to work hard so that I can prove that I am among those YOU have called and chosen. Help me to work hard so I can receive YOUR approval Oh Lord.
I ‘d like to wish everyone a very HAPPY LABOR DAY. May you work hard in all you do.
