How to Pray Hard and Work Hard

When it comes to work, there are two extremes.
- Some people work as if it all depends on God: Yes, God is sovereign and in control of all things. But sometimes, we fall into passivity. When this happens, we stop working and start expecting. We easily fall into the habit of laziness while developing an attitude of entitlement.
- Some people work as if it all depends on us: Others believe that we are capable of controlling our destinies. They believe that if we put in enough effort and hours, then we can create success for ourselves.
But the truth is that good work depends on both God and us. We must pray and petition God for success in order to glorify Him. But we must also be patient and diligent and persevere through tough times.
