The importance of prayer

1 Corinthians 3:11 "For no one can lay any foundations other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ."

This is the most important Farming Practice that we will ever do. We are embarking on a task to use the Soil, the Water, the Sunshine, the Time and the Growth with the Wisdom, Faith and Strength that our Creator God has given us.

The Lord knows all things and has all power to do every good work, so it is important to ask Him for the knowledge of these things and especially how to use them in a way that brings Him all the glory.

We should pray for the Lord to help us with these things regularly, and preferably as part of our quiet time each morning before we start, and even more importantly, before we start any new part of the season e.g. land preparation or planting etc. It is good to ask the Lord to help us to glorify Him in every aspect of the operation, and for Him to give us the gifting, wisdom, faith and joy for the task.

It is a very important part of faithfulness, to remember to give thanks and praise to the Lord! 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 is a very helpful scripture to memorise.... Good News Bible:

“Be joyful always, pray at all times and be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for your life in union with Christ Jesus.”
