Just as I have watched over them to pluck up and break down, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the Lord. Jeremiah 31:28
Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. James 5:7
Gracious Lord, hear our prayer for trust and patience. Help us to trust the promise of your presence, and to patiently wait for your guidance. Forgive us when our impatience takes over, and renew our faith in your guidance. Amen.
