Empowered by the Vine: A Prayer for Fruitfulness

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5, NIV


Thank You, Lord, for nurturing us with Your truth, dwelling within us, and empowering us to enjoy a life of fruitfulness.

Cultivate grace and courage in our hearts.

Prune us with gentle hands so we will bloom, as we obey Your Word and praise You with reckless abandon.

Like a row of lush grapevines, intertwine our lives as we support, encourage, and offer accountability to one another in love and truth.

Saturate us with Your presence as we stand firm against the storms that come our way.

When we can’t see the fruit of our labor bursting forth, help us continue to plant and water the seeds faithfully, trusting You are working to grow from the root.

Give us peace and rest as we draw near to You.

Strengthen our resolve, Abba. We want to be nestled in the center of Your will.

In Jesus’ name, Amen

How can serving in faithfulness grow our faith when the fruit of our labor seems scarce?
