Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16


“I will make you exceedingly fruitful” (Genesis 17:16a)

Last week we looked for signs of promise in the world around us. This week, think about the ways you can create signs of promise. Think about the meals you make, art, repairs to objects, gardens. What promises do they convey? How do your interactions with others bring promise to the world?

Choose one thing you usually do and do it intentionally as a sign of promise to the world.

We praise you,
O God of all generations,
all time, and all space.
When we wonder if you will respond to our prayers,
remind us that you answer.
Strengthen our faith
so we might trust in your promises.
Continue to journey with us
as we seek to be your faithful disciples
throughout all generations.
