Prayer and work is an essential component of human existence and our relationship to the high power which Christians called God.

When we pray, we pray for our will to be done rather than God's will. When our prayer point on a certain thing or request is not answered we tend to question God whether God loves us or not.

We may draw back and forget about going to Church because God is not going to answer our prayers. We should know the fact that God presence is felt and our prayers are answered in the form of work.

We make gardens when you see abundance and that God's blessings. You got to have faith in work and God assist people who want to help themselves and not lazy people. You can pray and sing all day hoping that a manna from heaven will fall down but without work you get nothing.

Hi Scott - Thank you for this inspirational piece.

You have elevated work to a higher plane and helped me see to its higher purpose in finding meaning in life.

More importantly are your words to see work as a gift, that all work should be poetic, to make a difference and shine.

The wise man called Solomon added a fine insight on the grandness of work: "You see a man skilful in his work, he will serve before kings, and not obscure men."
