“For we are God’s fellow workers ; you are God’s field, His building” 1 Corinthians 3:9
In today’s reading in 1 Corinthians, Paul speaks of all of us being “God’s workers”, that we are His fields and His buildings. This is the relationship that God desires, that we continue to plant seeds and build a growing relationship with Him, and to take the growth He brings to us and share it with the world, so that more can get to know and be close to Him.
Let us pray together :
Eternal One, in a world where we see hate and animosity towards others, help us to continue sowing the seeds of caring and compassion. In this world where there are people who want to tear down, help us to be Your builders , creators of a closer world relationship with You.
We are in scary and uncertain times, Lord. We pray that You would bring comfort and solace to those who are frightened, allow Your rain of love to fall on this land that is parched and thirsting for You.
We pray all these things through Jesus, our Savoir. Amen.
