“He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.” Proverbs 10:5 NIV

A lot of times we discuss this scripture in the context of preparedness in your work, being organized and planning ahead.

Allow me to invite you into another perspective concerning prayer and how it becomes a plentiful crop. In Luke 8:11, the writer tells us of the word of God which is the seed, and prayer is most powerful is rooted in the very seed from God. When it produces the expected result, then it becomes a crop for harvest. The proverbs writer speaks of a prudent son who does not cease to pray because times are good because those prayers act as seeds for when the times will be hard.

Just as you meal prep for days that are yet to come, so do you store prayers as a treasure in heaven and reap its crops for the difficult days which are sure to come. Child of God, be the prudent and wise son whose altar’s fire never goes out. Hallelujah.

Prayer: Father I thank you for this wisdom. I am a learned man as it pertains to the appointed times and my spirit never ceases to watch your word as you fulfill it in my day. Let there never be a day that I don’t rise to give you praise in Jesus name. Amen!
