Spanish term or phrase: A Dios rogando y con el mazo dando
Esta frase se usa en Mexico con la idea de que hay que trabajar para obtener lo que deseamos, no es suficiente pedirle a Dios y esperar que nos llegue del cielo. Me gustaria usarla como lema/motto de una organizacion de caridad y es importante que la idea permanezca intacta. Muchas gracias

Explanation:
Es la traduccion literal. 'Malleo' es el ablativo instrumental.

Muchas gracias. Alguien (fuera de PROZ) tambien me sugirio ORA ET LABORA, que al parecer significa lo mismo, pero creo que esta frase ya la usa otra organizacion.
