John 15:8


John 15:8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. 


Heavenly Father, by your grace and mercy, and through the Spirit’s work, you have grafted me into the Vine, Jesus Christ. I am a righteous branch created to bear abundant fruit. Therefore, in every situation, especially the unexpected and challenging ones that arise today, help me see them as opportunities to bear fruit showing that I am your disciple. Yes, the devil, the world, and my own sinful flesh seek to keep me from producing fruit.  But by your strength and in spite of their efforts, may I be a fruit-bearing branch today in every situation I encounter.  In Jesus’ name I ask this.  Amen.
