A Prayer For Growth


Lord, we would grow with you
New shoots reaching out
Hands stretched upward
Like leaves newly formed
Soaking up your light and warmth
Lord, we would grow with you

Lord, we would grow with you
In sunshine and rain
In darkness and light
In cold days and summer days
From Springtime to Winter
Lord, we would grow with you

Lord, we would grow with you
And bring forth fruit
That is pleasing to you
Fed by your living water
Giving sustenance to others
Lord, we would grow with you

-- contemporary Welsh prayer

Three days till the movers come--less, actually, as they will be here Monday morning--and exhaustion and overwhelm are setting in. Prayers for endurance and guidance, please....
