Prayer: God Gives Seed to the Sower

It is estimated that by 2050, food production will need to increase by ...

He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God—2 Corinthians 9:10, 11

Good Lord,

I’ve heard it said more than once; it’s not about the supply or the demand, but the distribution! I pray, O Lord that You would give seed to the sower! That You would open the storehouse of heaven and pour out a blessing so enormous it cannot be held even in the laps of Your children.

Grant to those suffering any need, whether it be shelter, clothing, food, shoes, a warm bed to sleep in, dependable transportation, even love and compassion, all they have need of and bless those who provide shelter, clothing, and a warm to bed to others: Give seed to the sower, O Lord!

I pray that You would keep food in the pantry: especially those pantries that service their communities and the hungry: Give seed to the sower, Lord! I pray you will bless the affluent and those with generous and compassionate hearts to be a blessing to others: Give seed to the sower, O Lord! I pray you will bless those who open up their home to the orphaned and the displaced: Give seed to the sower, O Lord! Bless the tiny church having few dollars and few people, who love to spread Your Word but lack the needed resources to do so: Give seed to the sower, O Lord! Bless the employer who pays their employees well and cares for them in ways that are pleasing to You: Give seed the sower, O Lord! Bless the work of our hands and the dedication of our heart and fulfill our desire to be a blessing to others: Give seed to the sower, O Lord!

Because You promise to provide seed for our well-being then we will not walk in fear of lack but will trust You to refill our empty spaces and places! Because You promise to provide seed to the sower for our well-doing, then we will not walk in fear of giving to others but trust You O Lord, will refill our empty spaces and empty places until there is a never-ending stream flow in and out! Amen

    Thanks for this one! This is normally a focus we tend to not forget but shy away from because we just don’t feel comfortable doing it. A reminder we need as we deal with congregations who are me focused. THANKS!!!!!
