Father, thank you that fruitfulness in people is not generated by me. Help me to keep hoping in and looking forward to the fruitfulness of your kingdom, even though I don’t know how it sprouts or have control over its growth. Keep me sowing the seed of your word and harvesting the fruit that follows. I ask that you keep me disciplined in sowing the word in my own heart, repenting of the sin it exposes and trusting in the forgiveness it speaks of in Christ. Open my eyes to the kingdom work you have prepared for me and let me labour at it with endurance and diligence.
