A Prayer for the Bearing of Fruit

As we walk the garden rows of our lives with our creator King Jesus…

May we uproot every weed—

That we may bear fruit.

May we remember that the compost of today is the fertilizer of tomorrow—

That we may bear fruit.

Though thinning and pruning are painful, may we let go of what is good, in favor of what is best—-

That we may bear fruit.

May we grow in our own native sweetness, and refuse the temptation to compare—

That we may bear fruit.

May we accept the seasonal changes of our lives, and refuse to let a need to control hold us ransom—

That we may bear fruit.

May we learn to trust the Gardener’s hand, and may we flourish even in the Soil of Suffering—

That we may bear fruit for the glory of God.
