Proverbs 18:9 “He who is slothful in his work is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.”
Leader, I bless you with an increased capacity to do the work that needs to be done. As we approach the last quarter of this year and energy levels are waning, I bless you with a renewed sense of purpose. I bless you with the right words of encouragement to those around you who might be feeling the strain and whose work and work ethic are slipping. I bless you with wisdom to deal with those who are lazy by nature and who delight to take others with them, causing a snowball effect of missed goals and resentful colleagues. I bless you with remembering your resolve at the beginning of the year or the planning cycle, to make this year count. Lift your eyes from the daily slog for a moment, and be invigorated by the bigger picture. I bless you with an awareness of your heavenly Father rooting for you to do the best with what He has given you.
