Saying a prayer is like planting a seed. We need to water it and weed around it. Sometimes it can take awhile before it sprouts. It sometimes takes patience to see an answer to a prayer. We can keep the faith. We can not make that seed grow, it will grow on its own if we plant it and water it, God will make it grow.
Same with our prayers. Imagine each prayer you pray is like planting a seed, or watering a seed you have already planted. Let it grow.
Plant a prayer seed today, or water a seed you have planted. Also ponder if maybe you need to weed around a seed you planted in the past. Anything negative you need to weed out, to give it space to grow?
