Pray After You Sow

Country rocker Joe Ely gives us some timely lyrics to enjoy in his song, "All That You Need".  The chorus reads:

 

"Sow the seed in the ground below

Fall to your knees and pray real slow

That rain will come and kiss the seed

And bless you with all that you need."

 

Joe reminds us that each time we sow a seed, we need to pray vigorously for the watering and growth of that seed.  we cannot do anything on our own.  We must pray for the support and guidance of God for our efforts to be successful.  Especially when we are trying to spread God's kingdom, we need to pray that we are doing so in a proper, truthful, and sincere manner,  and that our efforts will be pleasing in God's eyes. 

 

As Paul tells the people of Colossae in Colossians 1:9(TNIV), "For this reasonsince the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you.  We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives."

 

Sow generously and often, praying afterwards with increased ardor, in order to bear fruit.
