May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands.
It is the responsibility of man to work on the earth. We have all been given tasks, assignments and callings to pursue and fulfil.
The work we do can take up much of our lives, our focus and our energy. But without the favour and grace of God it will not be established.
This is a great prayer to pray because it appeals to God in humility “I can’t do this without you!”. Even though we work and labour and do all we do, it is the favour of God that will cause it breakthrough, last, succeed, achieve it’s end.
When the favour of God is with you, the work of your hand goes:
- From being good to being great
- From being possible to being probable
- From being maybe viable to being incredibly valuable
- From being ‘maybe’ to being certain!
That is what your hard work PLUS the favour of God will establish in your life.
PRAYER: Father, I humbly call upon your name and cry out for your favour! I submit all I am doing in this life under your hand and bring it all under your Lordship. My labour belongs to you. Lead me, guide me that your favour may rest upon me and the work of my hand may last with eternal value. In Jesus name, Amen.
