Take fields of our hearts, Lord,
The tired, the worn, the fertile and well-used,
The tested and tried ones.
The fields of our hearts need rest, Lord.
They are weary.
As we begin the Lenten season,
Cultivate our hearts to listen.
Help us turn over the old barren places.
Soften the hard and rocky edges.
Show us the promise of spring, of new growth,
Of fields where we dream to see the fullness of your harvest.
For now, we rest in the stillness.
We look to you and to the work you will do
We watch for your Spirit to work
In this season of Lent.
And in due season.
