Prayer Journey — Sower

I have turned the soil

Shovel by shovel

Tilled the land

One by one

I sowed seeds

In fertile ground

Torrential rains came

Heat bore down

I looked for growth

I nurtured the land

Weeded the plot

Protected each seed

Heartfelt prayer

Mournful tears

Water the seeds

Watching, waiting

Some sprouted

Others did not

I cherished plants

That did grow tall

Rising to new life

Prayed for others

Still in the ground

Hoping for growth

Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him. – Psalm 126:5-6 (NASB)

  1. Yes, we must be diligent, but sometimes I do get impatient waiting for a sprout or growth. I remind myself that God has been patient with me and I have benefitted from His love and grace. Blessings.
