King of heaven, who knows the end from the beginning and every detail in between, do not let us forget that it is not up to us to fulfill your work in the world, but show us the part we are called to play and let us be content in it, that we would rejoice with you in the work your people will complete together and all will enjoy the fruits in your blessed kingdom of love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in perfect glory forever. Amen.
'The reaper is already receiving wages and is gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, "One sows and another reaps."' - John 4:36-37
