Hidden Prayer, Hidden Fruits

Everything

begins its life veiled

beneath the surface

and hidden from view.

 

Cultivate your inner soil

through prayer–

before the plant is seen,

roots are growing

below the surface.

 

The field that appears fallow,

or barren,

will bloom in time—

the persistent farmer

eventually harvests his reward.

 

Words are the clothing

our thoughts,

and motives wear

when visiting others.

 

But we disrobe entirely

in the presence of

The One who made us.

There are no clothes

to hide our thoughts

from Him.

 

Our forebearers

picked forbidden fruits,

but we through prayer

will bear the hidden fruits.
