praying and labouring

I must pray as much as if I were nothing, and labour as much as if I were to do all.
- Andrew Bonar, Diary and Life; Banner of Truth, 1960; p34 (from diary entry for Sabbath 23 August 1835)

I just searched the blog to see if I'd previously noted this quote, which I've just come across where I noted it down in an old notebook, and saw that I hadn't but found some other quotes from the same book. I then looked it up in the book to see if it had actually said 'were to do nothing', but I'd noted it correctly.
