Praying from Matthew 13:3. Themes: Sowing, Growth, Fruitfulness

Dear Lord, thank you for the many parables that you have shared with us. We pray that you would help us to understand the deeper meaning behind each story. As we reflect on the parable of the farmer sowing his seeds, we ask that you would help us to be like the good soil that receives your word and bears fruit. May we be receptive to your teachings and obedient to your will. We pray that you would guide us as we go out into the world to share your love and truth with others. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Verse: He spoke to them many things in parables, saying,“Behold, a farmer went out to sow.
