Praying from 2 Thessalonians 3:8 relating to Work, Responsibility, Self-sufficiency.

Dear Lord, help us to follow the example of the apostles who worked hard day and night to provide for themselves and not burden others. May we also be diligent in our work and not rely on others to provide for us. Give us the strength and perseverance to work hard and be self-sufficient. Help us to be responsible and not take advantage of the generosity of others. We pray for your guidance and blessings in all our endeavors. Amen.

Verse: neither did we eat bread from anyone’s hand without paying for it, but in labor and travail worked night and day, that we might not burden any of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:8

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to work hard and not burden others.
