help me to prepare my heart,
tilling and turning baked soil,
removing hard rocks,
weeds, and boulders,
so there’s depth for your truth to root.
Let me be faithful in planting and receiving good seed,
to water, nourish, and nurture,
guarding and protecting their life.
Place around me other believers,
growing their own healthy gardens,
wise and skilled in your Spirit and Word,
ready in season and out.
Lord, I ask you to grow,
your Truth in my heart,
increasing and strengthening my faith—
let your desires take deep root,
tall and wide,
and let me filled with your ways,
your purposes, your heart,
full of life from the Source of life.
Help me to do my part,
and trust you to do yours.
I bless you Lord.
