Cultivating Ground

March 02, 2013 0

Genesis 2

​Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground–trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food…The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work [“cultivate’‘] it and take care of it.”

​Great God of the garden

Today I pray

Let me remember

That I am made to tend your creation

To cultivate ground that you have prepared

To plant seeds which you have supplied

To encourage growth which you have established

To guard young shoots which you have nourished

To prune old wood when its service to you is done

Thank you, God

That you have called me

Not only to be part of your creation

But part of your creativity

Amen.
