Lord of the harvest, your word is still being scattered, please soften our hearts that we may receive it with joy and grow, bearing fruit. May we thrive in your love, and not be swept away, giving our worship and adoration to other things. May we know your goodness and draw near to you. Help us to trust you in the difficulties or trials of life, enduring to the end. May we not be drawn away by the lesser pleasures of life but bask fully in your grace and life that you pour out through Christ. We entrust ourselves to you, knowing that you are the one who brings growth. We rest in you, and pray and long for you to shape us for your glory and our good.
