Sometimes we think we’re not doing enough if we just pray for someone.
But when the disciples couldn’t help a demon-possessed boy, the Lord told them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer (Mark 10:29).”
Prayer is the greater work. ~ Oswald Chambers
The disciples told Jesus all about they had done, and he said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile (Mark 6:31).”
We work. We pray. And the Lord gives rest.
The Lord gifted Bezalel with wisdom and ability to perform any task involved in building the sanctuary. Bezalel worked masterfully with wood, gold, bronze and cloth. (Most people would be good at one of the those things.) Everything he made was exactly what God wanted (Exodus 37:1-38:22).
Ask the Lord to give you wisdom and ability to do your work. He will.
A prayer in Stormie Omartian’s book, The Power of a Praying Wife, begins like this: Lord, I pray that You would bless the work of my husband’s hands.*

God blesses when we pray.
