Praying from 1 Thessalonians 4:11 relating to Contentment, Diligence, Self-sufficiency.

Dear Lord, please help me to make it my ambition to lead a quiet life, focused on doing my own business and working with my own hands. Please guide me in following the instructions you have given me, so that I may live a life that is pleasing to you. Help me to find contentment in the simple things and to be diligent in my work. Thank you for your constant love and guidance. Amen.
