Praying with Paul: 'Giver of Life, Grower of Grace'

1 Corinthians 3:8-9

Dear Father, growth-giving God,

Both the planter and the waterer are equal and shall receive their wages according to their labor.

But you give life! You are the giver of growth! Your servants are just fellow workers for you. Our allegiance is not to them but to you. We are your field, your building.

Build us into a magnificent temple! Grow us into luxuriant plants! Show your creativity, your power, your wisdom, your bounty in us!

In the name of Jesus, the foundation of our lives, I ask all this. Amen.
