Almighty God and Creator of heaven and earth. Thank you for the changing seasons. Thank you for the hope of spring after a cold, dank winter. The daffodil and Iris tips are peaking through the much in the hope of warmer weather and bright sunny days. Father, don’t squash their growth with another deep frost. Allow them to shine your glory. Likewise, grow my faith with each word of Scripture I study, with each prayer I uplift and with each heart I can touch with your goodness. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” (Luke 12:27 ESV)
