Potential

The hundreds of seeds developing in the center of this bud remind me that none of us knows our true potential.

My prayer

Potential, may I, created in Your image, develop the potential that is within.

Biblical touchstones

  • God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:11-12
  • God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
  •  …for God all things are possible. -Jesus Matthew 19:26

Invitation to prayer

Imagine yourself as the most beautiful flower or fruit laden-tree you have ever seen. Connect with your seeds. Name as many as you can. What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, body, and imagination? Pray them now.
