Planting & Watering

Over the years, I've heard countless stories of faithful parents persevering in prayer for the salvation of their children. Some see immediate fruit. Others have been prayerfully waiting and watching for many years. Even though our daughter is only six months old, we are already making her salvation a matter of regular prayer. This morning, I was reminded that we are called to pray, to plant seeds and to water, but ultimately it will be God's gentle drawing on her heart that will lead her to Him.

I planted, Apollos watered, but God [all the while] was making it grow and [He] gave the increase. So neither he who plants is anything nor he who waters, but [only] God Who makes it grow and become greater. 1 Corinthians 3:6 & 7
