Christ, faithful Sower, scattering the good seed, God’s word of promise, full of truth and grace;
give us, your people, courage, strength, and wisdom, that we may serve you in this time and place.

Teach us discernment as the quickened seeds sprout, when weeds and good plants have together grown, to tell temptations from the worth they mimic,
to seek your purpose rather than our own.

Gird us with patience when no harvest ripens,
lest we despair and think our labors vain;
though it seem slow, your word of life will prosper, seedtime at length will yield abundant grain.

— hymn by Carl P. Daw (1944–)
