Prayer for the week


Gardener God,

as spring moves to summer and growth accelerates,

help us to do things differently for your kingdom,

pruning the familiar and stirring the imagination.


Pruning God,

as pruning reveals unexpected and unfamiliar treasures,

point us in the direction of the unexpected tender shoots,

ready to burst forth, giving energy for something new.


Caring God,

as the vine gives life to the whole plant,

nourish us with your love,

so that our lives may bear fruits of your generous love.
