Prayer Gathering
Throughout the month of October we will be gathering to pray for through the responsibilities God has entrusted to our care. We will focus most directly on the work/labor to which God has called us.

The Labor of our Hands
Adapted from an Article from Desiring God entitled “20 Verses for God-Centered Administrators.”

1. God-centered work is not work with God as an appendage or afterthought. He is the core, the root, the source, the origin, the power, the point of it all.

From him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:36)

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. (Acts 17:24–25)

2. The chief credential of the God-centered labor is: God.
God is “for us” in carrying out his plan, not necessarily our own. His enabling grace is more crucial than our academic credentials or years of experience, though we do not disparage such credentials supplied in his kind providence.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)

3. God-centeredness implies, requires, and builds humility.
What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it? (1 Corinthians 4:7)

4. If God is the main worker, ask him to work.
You do not have, because you do not ask. (James 4:2)

Jesus said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.” (Mark 9:29)
